Maple guitar? 

I have received some publicity material from a luthier, describing varoius models that he can make. Amongst which is a maple guitar. Just out of curiousity has anyone heard or played a maple guitar?

RE: Maple guitar? (in reply to Martin

I've heard some classical, steelstring and 2 flamenco maple guitars (sides and back)

I played one flamenco maple. Its not my favorite tonewood. I would prefer good cypress for a blanca.

Its a wonderfull tonewood for steelstrings. Beautifull definition and no booming.

I find that its abit noosy on flamenco guitars, but again, I've only tried one and heard 2.

I played 2 in the Ricardo Sanchis taller last week. they were both good, very pretty and not much different from cypress: the tapa is more important to the sound. However the top guitars selected in this test were cypress and I must have tried a dozen.
