I carry all types of guitars that are made from all kinds of woods but aesthetically most people favor Quilted Maple. There are many types of Quilted Maple and different people who work in the wood industry have given the different variations many different names and designations. The reason for this page is so that my customers will have a starting point to describe the type of Quilt that they prefer. Also I wish to educate my customers so that they will know what to watch out for when they are buying an instrument.
An example of one of my Gibson retopped Les Paul Guitars
For example some companies offer beautiful tops but they might not be real. Fender for a while, affixed a large photograph to the top of their guitars to simulate flame "Foto Flame". Brian Moore guitars still uses a bent piece of veneer to simulate a carved arched quilted top (Buyer Beware). Ibanez, Lak-Land and many others also use paper thin veneers to simulate a beautiful Quilted Maple Guitar, (Buyer Beware). There is nothing wrong with this except in the case of Lak Land for example they are charging ridiculous prices for supposedly handmade instruments.
