A highly popular and sought-after Australian tonewood. It is light, strong, has a fabulous tone producing strong mid-tones, and is striking to look at. Golden in colour with light brown features. It has a straight and wavy grain with frequent fiddleback features. Ideal for backs and sides, solid bodies and necks. It is used often for necks and neck and tail blocks because of its stability and lower density than other hardwoods. Quilted maple has a beautiful wavy and satiny grain
