Flamed Queensland Maple has been used for many years in the Australian guitar industry. Australian guitar manufacturers Maton have used this timber for the backs, sides and necks of most of their steel string guitars for several decades. We have found that this local timber also works very well in classical guitars.

Quality - We have the highest quality sets of Queensland Maple available, these sets are quartersawn with straight grain with lots of evenly spread figure and a good tap tone.

Look - Back and side sets have a diagonal flamy figure which changes depending on the direction you look at it. Colour is generally a pinky orange but can have grey hues, the colour is very close to the colour of Western Red Cedar making the two timbers aesthetically compatible.

Sound - It is a light weight crisp timber like Honduras Mahogany, but the sound is more suitable for classical guitars than Mahogany, use either a cedar or spruce soundboard with good results.

Price - The price is very reasonable when compared to most other tone woods of this quality, because it is a local timber we can supply it at the best possible price.

Availability/Renewability - Good quality Queensland Maple is beginning to become scarce. Our sets come from naturally grown trees, so there is a possibility it will become more scarce in the years to come depending on how much of the timber is used by other industries like the furniture industry. There are plantations of Queensland maple but the timber is quite plain when compared to the old growth timber.
