Of course it's much darker than maple and some examples have lovely rich colouring. Walnut is in the same density bracket as maple, so I'm pretty certain that no one could tell the difference between the two woods in any sonic test. . . . unless they hear tone with their eyes.
Ashley Sanders made a guitar with burl ash, very attractive, and with a rich deep bass. Anybody have any experience with ash?
