    Nice figure, product , but expect to straighten the edges for gluing

    Posted by Geoffrey Schmid on 20th Nov 2020

    I received a bookmatched set with fairly tight flame figure. Pretty uniform in figure and shade with a little mineral streak in one area (lots on the other side so don't think I want to sand much!). The center seam does not meet my requirements for a decent glue joint so I will be losing a little width when I joint/sand as needed. I have been somewhat spoiled in the past with local suppliers here in the Pacific NW that have S4S (surfaced four sides) stock that needed no additional work to join, but completely expect to straighten and square all the wood I buy nowadays. However, I do feel the center seam of a bookmatched pair should be suitable for a perfect glue joint if you are going to specify a particular width. Just my opinion. Otherwise pleased with the product.

    Pretty good, but not "master grade"

    Posted by Mike on 15th Jan 2020

    This is a great bargain for what I would call a very good drop top, but it's not master grade. For the money, you really can't complain - these are very well priced, and you probably get more than what you're paying for. Still, I would rather pay an extra $20-$40 and get deeper, tighter, more consistent figuring. I've bought a number of their master grade curly maple neck blanks and this isn't quite as well figured as those are, despite being graded the same. Quite good, but not "master grade" I would use in a $2000+ custom build. Likely if you were to order 10 of these you'd get some that were exceptional, and some that were more like this - good but not great.

    Top Quality Top

    Posted by Frederick Dorsey on 10th Jan 2019

    Just got my first top from American Specialty Hardwoods and it's amazing. The figure is perfect. No runouts and the color is a perfect honey amber. Best wood deal out there. Thanks.
