I did a little digging on this subject. There was worry about bending spalted maple sides. I haven't gotten that far and might end up just using some very curly sides. But I will try matching sides anyway.
I was wondering if the person (already can't remember who) ever got thier spalted sides bent.
These pieces have no reals soft spots. All is at least as hard as mahogany. The guitar outline on the first piece is #1 size. the other pieces are 8 1/2 X 36. Book matched to 17 X 36.
I'll get better at this I hope!
How do I make these smaller. When I emailed them earlier today they were much smaller.
I like the big pictures. Easier to see details.
Hi David-- from what I hear ( and I dont know first hand ) spalted maple, although it has a gr8 look is not good for acoustic guitars, but then again thats what I hear.
I have 4 pieces of spalted maple that I will use for a solid body guitar, but I will be plaining it to 1/4 inch for a top plate.
Let us know what you r findings are for an acoustic guitar -- ok??
