Flame Hard Maple Carved Top for Electric - 015

A classic wood choice for guitar tops, these figured bookmatched pieces are sized for carving an arched top for an electric guitar. With amazing figure and bright tone, a maple top will make a guitar that looks as good as it sounds.

Minimum dimensions of each bookmatched half:
6-1/2" x 20.5" x 7/8" thick (171.45mm x 520.7mm x 22.22mm)

Hard Maple, Acer saccharum
Known for its beauty, strength, and tone, Flamed Hard Maple can really do it all. Each set of two pieces are bookmatched for an excellent mirror image for your top. With dynamic ripples and flame, each piece is unique and ready for you to carve your custom top.

"Rock" or "Hard" Maple is an excellent wood both for its workability and tonal properties. Tonally, it's bright, bold, and adds a quick response and clarity to your build. It works well with hand tools or power tools and CNC. Take care on highly figured pieces to limit chip out—using razor-sharp cutters and light passes will prevent these issues.

When finishing the options are truly limitless. Like most maples, it finishes easily and looks beautiful under any stain or translucent color. From classic sunbursts, stains, or a simple clear coat, it's easy to accentuate the figure for a truly three-dimensional top.


All WOODSTAX items come with our 100% satisfaction promise and no-hassle returns. If you are unhappy with the wood once you get it, simply return it in its original, unworked condition for a full refund or exchange.
