I agree with Charles.

Get quarter-sawn material in whatever wood you use. That's an absolute requirement, in my opinion, no matter how many guitars you've built. And speaking of maple, it's not the most stable of woods in terms of expansion and contraction with the seasons.

I've seen many flat-sawn backs crack over the years. It's not a given, but why take the risk when you'll be investing a lot of time.
