The new channel-bound Rosewood fingerboard is a brand-new Fender innovation in which the compound-radius (9.5″-14″) Rosewood fingerboard is “inlaid” into the thick modern “C”-shaped Maple neck. In addition to creating a stylish new look, it imparts an amazingly comfortable fretting-hand feel in which both edges are pleasingly rounded, with no side seam between neck and fingerboard.
