gun Posted May 31, 2005 Report Share Posted May 31, 2005 Hi folks I have a question about maples. I have the opportunity of a deal here. there's a guitar makers stopping his business to make amps (his dream he says), so he's selling his wood. Dried almost 10 years!!! He has hard rock maple, birdeyes maple, flame maple for neck, and other woods I need. I would try the birdeyes maple but two things stop me. It's my fist project I haven't any experience with wood, a guy told me that the pattern in the birdeyes maple is a defect of the wood's fiber so it looks great but sounds bad. Is it true? Also to preserve the pattern birdeyes and flame maple are plainsaw and not quarter, is it true? I can buy wood for 10 necks (10 years air dried for 50 Euros). In the italian wood market it's a great deal!!! I can always buy the "simple" maple but i would try the birdeyes, can you clear up for me those doubts? Thanks Gian Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
