Unique and Gorgeous Spalted Maple Top on a Powerful Suhr Modern!
Spalted maple is not something you come across very frequently due to the unique conditions under which it is created. Tonally, it has all of the snap and brightness of maple but it is slightly lighter and WAY cooler to look at and the basswood body only reinforces and expands on its tonal qualities. With an HSH pickup combination and splittable neck and bridge pickups, you're sure to find the tone you're looking for!

Native to Asia, Europe, and North America, Basswood gained prominence as a favored tone wood for shredders in the 1980’s. It is light in color and weight with almost no grain pattern. It is best suited for solid colors or as a backing wood for a figured top. Basswood bodies have a fat, well-balanced tone that produces smooth sounds without any hard edges.
