One piece Birds Eye Maple top
Birds Eye neck heel cap
another vote for koa... flamed.
One piece Quilted Maple.
Semi-Hollow, No f hole.
I also love a one piece maple quilt.
Hey folks- Lets see if we can get a few more top wood responses today and I will post the next category this afternoon! Help spread the word, we need some more votes!
+1, gets me every time!
east coast curly maple, semi hollow, no F-hole.
Alright, looks like one piece quilt maple is the winner!
So, we have a 594 semi-hollow, one piece quilt maple top.
What should the body wood be?
Some options: Ash, Ribbon Mahogany, Figured Mahogany, Black Limba, etc. etc.
Also - If you are thinking a One piece quilt maple cap on the back to match - please include in your reply!
Black Limba or Korina (which sound the same to me...but the BL is nicer looking).
Twin the back with a one piece maple quilt. Obeche is a nice middle for the sandwich.
I think we need to keep in mind this needs to be a balanced sounding instrument, versus a fantasy piece. Maple on the back is going to make it extremely bright and not very warm. My vote is white korina (limba)
Not necessarily. A few maple sandwiches have been built before and they weren't especially bright. I think the semi hollow will have more impact on the sound of the guitar than a maple cap on the back.
Not that I'm trying to change your vote or talk you into anything.
And remembering that it is semi hollow, I might switch the middle to mahogany rather than Obeche, especially if it is down with an f hole.
Ash, with a maple derriere. So a Maple/ash/maple sammich.
with the quilt top, I would pair it with an african mahogany back and an ebony or abw fretboard
oh geez... this thing is going to be the most expensive private stock ever made if its up to you guys
If we're going maple top AND back...why not go full HollowBody with 594 scale length?
As much as I would love to - I think MAP would be 10 bajillion dollars.
