Mmmm... bourbon maple bacon fade...
I actually had bourbon bacon maple syrup on sriracha chicken and waffles a few weeks ago......YUMMY! The sriracha was in the waffle batter. Subtle too.
That sounds divine. I'm more of a sambal oelek guy (facebook recently reminded me that almost exactly a year ago I had posted that I was "in a relationship" with Sambal Oelek), but sriracha will do in a pinch.
So basically there's no good reason they don't offer plain maple. Trust me I love a good figured top too, my CU24 semi-hollow has an awesome 10 top, but the classic translucent plain maple top look would be awesome to see. Mahogany/korina doesn't finish in the same way so that doesn't really count.
It is what it is, I guess. I'm just surprised that there's literally 0 examples of plain maple PRS. I don't think they're inferior to figured tops, just a different, slightly more natural look.
Gosh......what the hell was I thinking?
Find a Stripped 58.
Or look at the S2 line.
Although there will always be some figuring in those tops, I guess.
Or get an opaque finish.
PRS prides itself on guitars that not only play super great but also look amazing. When they do release something with a plainer look, everyone starts clamoring for the curly maple. It simply doesn't make much business sense for them to purposely release "plain" maple tops.
I suppose you could look at the Standard lines too - no maple.
