Great figure at a reduced price.
Unbelievable quality at this price.
Bargain bin? Wow, it’s got super figure. Expecting 3/4” ,but it’s 1 1/8”. These pieces are so clean I plan to use it as a chambered body and add a Curley maple drop top. ( also sourced from American Specialty, also beautiful).
Wish I had a little extra cash.
At $40 bux a top, this is a steal!
I started building guitars, so I wanted something nicer than the plain bargain bin blanks (which I also love!), so I tried out one of these. I re-sawed it to get two tops, and at $20 per top, friends think I spent hundreds. Beautiful figure, and the inclusions were routed out at the neck pocket
Great service and great wood for for prize.
Great product and great service.
Thank you very much
Bargain for sure. A great deal, I only see one small blemish on the back side of the book matched set. I will definitely order again.
I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I have a custom kit guitar coming soon with a 5A maple top, and really wanted to practice on a similar grade of wood to fully understand how my finishing plan would play out on a highly figured top, but of course didn't want to shell out on an instrument grade top to practice on. I ordered this fully expecting some major flaws as noted in the description, and all I see are two beautifully matched, thick pieces of extremely figured maple that look 5A to me. These belong on an instrument, so I'm saving them for the top of my first from-scratch build.
Took a chance on this given the positive review. I have to admit that my experience mirrors that of others. Great set of curly maple for a carve top for a very reasonable price.
