Big Leaf Maple, Acer macrophyllum
Big Leaf Maple is found all along the Pacific North American coastline, where the lush, humid climate can produce trees up to 12 feet in diameter or more.

More traditionally used for archtop & electric guitars, violins, and mandolins, Maple has nevertheless gained popularity among flattop builders for its quick sound and highly responsive attack.

In many ways Maple is much like the "lightning" to Rosewood's "thunder". Where Rosewood offers thick low-end rumble, Maple offers a fast attack with a quick drop off. Maple is perfect for creating a voice that can be heard apart from the rest of the band.

Big Leaf Maple can exhibit exceptionally gorgeous figure as well. Rich, deep, edge-to-edge flame is common, and quilted figure is only found on Big Leaf Maple.
