Limited Stock! Bring rich, deep figure to your next acoustic guitar build. Quilted maple not only looks gorgeous, but sounds great too!
Flatsawn for that unmistakable look, quilted maple offers a slightly warmer tone than traditional curly maple. Pair with our Bearclaw Sitka top to create a show-stopper with clear high notes and a warm bass response.
Kiln-dried and stable, each back is a set of two bookmatched halves for joining and profiling. The sides are a bookmatched set of two, unprofiled (rectangular) and unbent.
Tip: Stain quilted maple twice for that 3-D pop! Block-sanding the majority of the stain removes most of the color and enhances the grain, causing the curls and swirls to stand out darker when you apply a second coat of stain.
New to bending sides? Figured woods like quilted maple can be tricky to bend. Use our practice wood to perfect your technique.
