I have both and both are great. I voted ebony because I think it wears better.

I like ebony. I don't mind rosewood but it just has to be dark I don't care for the lighter rosewood.

I picked other, even though any of the above are fine in my opinion. The "other" I was thinking about is Katalox (also known as Mexican Ebony). Katalox is very dense and a good alternative to ebony, while able to be sustainably harvested. The guitar I am looking to buy next month has a Katalox fingerboard/bridge.. To me it looks very nice
