Fall Promotional Special. Once again trying to spread the word about the wonders of spruce/maple guitars.

Give spruce and maple a try, and at no extra cost I'll include this master grade bearclaw European spruce top (normally $150 extra) and this set of European "shell" maple (normally $250 extra). That's a savings of $400 for tonewoods that will make a feast for the ears and eyes!

This is one of the last soundboards I have with beautiful hasel figure that runs perpendicular to the grain. It's stiff, light, and has a resonant tap tone. I'm pairing this outstanding top with an equally amazing shell maple set. I've never seen figure quite like this. It's a little less dense than hard maple from the Eastern US, but much more dense than big leaf maple-which I feel is usually too airy. This maple set will impart a great old world, traditional glow with plenty of treble sparkle; a great sound for repertoire that demands a melodious timbre.

Time for delivery is approx. 4 months. A first payment of $1,000 secures your order. This price is for a guitar with standard appointments. Prices for additional options/marquetry can be viewed on my website. See this same page for purchase policy. http://jasonwolverton.com/index.php?/on ... sordering/

Are there any sound samples of a shell maple B/S guitar you could point to? Your guitars are fantastic, btw.

Thanks, Guther.

I've never used wood with this particular figure in it, but I have a lot of experience with maple. The figure itself would have no impact on the tone. More important, in my view, is the density of the wood.

Here's a sound example of a Spruce/Maple with a Romanillos plantilla and 7 fan bracing-

and here's an example of spruce/maple with my Wolverton plantilla/elevated fingerboard/wood lattice bracing.

I love spruce and maple combination best of all. It is appropriate when the binding/purfling is a bit fancy. Maple likes to be dressed up a bit.
