All Maple Guitar Wanted

I want an all maple guitar. 1 piece of wood. I don't know who would build such a thing. I imagine the tone to be very bright and resonant.

Who might I commission to build such a beast?

Re: All Maple Guitar Wanted

I'm confused by your post...

Are you asking a general question about who might build an all maple guitar? If so then this isn't the right forum. You should post in the 'other 6-string guitars' forum.

I have a couple of all Maple body blanks. Most are split down the middle, but I have one or two that are solid one piece.

Re: All Maple Guitar Wanted

I should move the thread then. But I don't think I can.

So Frank Fablo, what are the dimensions?

I guess I'd need to find a piece of maple that's 12" x 39" x 1.5"

Re: All Maple Guitar Wanted

Warmoth have a couple of one piece Maple bodies for sale right now. For what it's worth, the only all Maple guitars I can recall are the Gibson L6s, which were absolute rubbish, The RDs which were... odd .... and the gorgeous Gibson L5S - a SOLID MAPLE version of the L5 Jazz box in miniature - the only L5S I have evr played was so bright that there was almost no tonal difference between the bridge and neck pickups.

Oh, yeah, the Parker Fly Supreme is solid curly maple too - they show up on the *Bay every now and then.

Re: All Maple Guitar Wanted

I'm interested in 1 piece of solid maple.
1 tone nob.
The LGM guitars look very well-crafted, and that one especially, but I want a different body shape, more like a strat/archtop.

Re: All Maple Guitar Wanted

Aren't the Lynch guitars all maple? At least the yellow tiger and the kamikazes are. Not sure if they are one piece though.

I think it is a bolt on neck.
