B/S American Maple, classical/000/OM
Acer macrophyllum/Acer rubrum
Maple should certainly be considered a well-tested 'staple' choice for back and side 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 be more versatile, providing firm sonic support for a variety of different instruments.

Because of the tension in the wood and the relative instability of thinner stock, backs and sides of this material are rarely flat. You may even require board supports on either side of the backs to be jointed. As with many figured woods, expect movement in the sets until you have them braced. We will not accept returns on Maple for warp or cup unless it is extreme. For this reason, Maple may be more suitable for experienced luthiers.
