    Rosewood for sure, the stock SE necks are great - don't see a need to change a neck just for looks....

    It is a nice neck but I have a '91 E series maple neck that is also very nice. It would come off of this guitar. I think the rosewood would look pretty good with the red.

    Mine has rosewood, have to admit though that I prefer the clean look of maple which my other strats have, but the Rosewood on the SE give it a look and feel of a more expensively built guitar..

    Since you've already got your necks for the swap and think the rosewood would go the well with the Squier II red body, I say go for it!

    Either is awesome
    White Strats are perfect with any combo

    In my opinion it depends on whether you plan to play it or hang it on the wall.

    If it is a player, then rosewood all the way.

    Fingerboard has to be Rosewood or Ebony with genuine mother of pearl dot inlays - class!
