Widely used in musical instrument making over many centuries for its stunning tonal qualities, the highest-quality maple is also always visually arresting.

… Just have to make your choice from quilted or flamed maple for top, back & sides, dependant on the instrument, and perhaps birdseye maple for the neck for a great combination.
