Maple, Bigleaf

Acer macrophyllum

Though demands from a variety of industries can make it difficult for us to regularly stock, Bigleaf Maple should certainly be considered a well-tested 'staple' choice for back and side woods. Among the most decadently figured woods, its use on large guitars, such as the Gibson J-200, is well known. Its popularity there is likely the result of its characterization as a bright sounding tonewood (which could balance the boominess of a large body). However, many skilled builders have found it to more versatile, providing firm sonic support for a variety of different instruments.
