We have recently found a source for fiddleback Silver Leaf Maple ( Acer saccharinum).
This wood has been used successfully for Flamenco guitars and, to promote it’s use , we offer the following:
1. Buy a fiddleback Silver Maple set for $100.00.
2. Build a guitar ( Flamenco or otherwise).
3. Send us a photo of your completed guitar and we will return your $100.00

Would silver maple be a suitable material for a neck?

Do you have any wedge sets for archtop construction? I realize you probably couldn't offer quite the same deal.

Hey Hibdon! I have a 3' diameter SM tree in my yard. If you want to come cut it down, it's yours.
Just leave me a few branches for the woodstove...

Its seems to be ok for a neon stringed guitars neck but not a steel string guitars neck.
Let me knwo if you have any other questions.

We do not have anything that would make an archtop currently.

Thanks!
