Recently I've been reading a few posts about Gibson's new baked maple fretboards. I have a 2010 SG Std. Can any of you guys tell me if my fretboard is rosewood or maple? Not that it matters as I love the guitar. I'm just curious. Also, can anyone tell me why Gibson made the change? Some of that illegial wood stuff or just cost cutting? Thanks in advance for the info.



i dont like baked maple....pass

What would you say the wood is on my 2011 Classic? I can't see a huge difference compared to my other guitars with rosewood boards:

Looks like the rosewood board on my SG Special Faded, so I'm gonna go with rosewood. From what I've seen, baked maple is much browner, where rosewood tends generally towards reddish-brown, and your board seems to be a reddish-brown. Then again, I could be wrong--I mean, the grain and color look like rosewood, but I've never been great at identifying woods, so... [confused]
