It is flamed maple. My maple SJ Fred built me also has a maple neck. For me, the maple option was an aesthetic demand/suggestion I made to Fred. If he had any reason not to do it, it would have told me, has we previously discussed the type of tone I was after, and that was more important.

I’m not en expert on tone wood and guitar building so all decisions regarding the choice of wood is made with the good advices of Fred.

He would certainly give a better answer to your question than I do. For what is worth, he is build me a third guitar (parlor) and the neck is flamed maple just like the one on my baritone.
