AAAA Flame/Fiddleback Maple Guitar Top
The AAAA Flame/Fiddleback Maple Guitar Top represents our finest in Flame Maple Tops. This Flame maple has even more beautiful perpendicular distortions in the wood grain. These distortions happen during the growth of the wood. The wave like pattern that is produced is what we call the "Flame" in the maple. Having figure such as flame or quilt on a musical instrument is noted for its exquisite appearance. In quality guitars having a figured pattern can cause a perceptible improvement in sustain and overall tone. The AAAA (Quadruple A) rating on this wood reflects the highest in quality, consistency of the figure, and the highest possible wood quality as well. Bunker™ only uses the best in our selection of tone woods, which are hand selected in our Stump to Stage™ process.
