Glad you like that, Dennis. This set makes me want to do a run of maple guitars.
It is being prepped for our SJ model. There is so much variety in this genus that each model could have a different look, while every one being maple.
Something for everybody!

Well I have been recently converted to a Maple junkie after having picked up a new to me Kinnaird OM made from quilted Maple. Not only is it visually stunning, it is out of this world in sound. Nothing like the common conception (or I think I should say misconception) on what Maple is to sound like. This Kinnaird that I call the Marvelous Maple is fantastic! I mean awesome fantastic. Sorry for the hi-jack.

Couldn't you find one with a little more 'Wow!' in the wood?

(And using the acquisition route now to sneak up on me, are we?!)

Yes Steve and Ryan are too slow building so now I have to go in both the primary and secondary markets haha but I think I'm still a long way from st. Bob, they just barely know my name and now with Mr. Sebastian, they have probably forgotten that...lol.
