Overview AAA Curly Maple Acoustic Guitar Sides:

In our opinion, few woods have the potential of a curly maple side. Usually used by prestigious builders such as Santa Cruz or Bourgeois, or in iconic models such as Gibson's SJ-200. It is undoubtedly one of the most sought after tonewoods for its acoustic qualities.

Experts say that it has a brighter tone than mahogany, with a faster attack and a very quick response to the touch. All this without even taking into account its incredible curly aspect, which acquires almost three-dimensional shades once it has been lacquered.

European maple - Acer pseudoplatanus - is a light-colored wood, with golden reflections that intensify when oxidized. It is a wood with no appreciable grain, which in many cases eliminates the need to use a filler. It is easy to work despite its hardness (although it requires sharp tools) and a bright and attractive finish can be achieved simply by using a scraper or planer, without even needing sandpaper. It is undoubtedly one of the most pleasant woods to work with.

In the AAA Grade sides you will find our sides with the most visible flame or curl. White color with amber shades. Free of knots, without stains or color changes within the area to be used. Our best sides, worthy of high-end instruments. You can follow this link to choose some suitable backs.
