Speaking form the perspective of electrics...I think a Fender's body and neck are made out of Rock Maple for the most part. I don't know what type of wood would be a good substitute in your part of the world. Rosewood fretboards have become the norm for most guitars, although "rosewood" is just a name these days...many woods are substituted because their fiber structure and density is similar to that of Rosewood.
