Hello all !

As I wrote in a earlier topic, I will certainly go in the next weeks with a OOO-40.

Do you have examples of quilted mahogany back and sides, as I may be able to put some extra money in a custom order.

Larrivée told me that quilted mahogany can go from around 200$ up to the 400$ listed in the custom sheet.

In the custom section of the acoustic guitars, there is an example of a 200$ back, but they do not have pics of the 400$ backs.

Maybe some of you have ! gotpics?

Best,

Fantastic looking guitars, though I'm not a big fan of a "quilted" grain pattern in any wood whether it's on a guitar or furniture, etc.  I absolutely love the look of so-called "flamed" wood grain though.

Something I've often pondered is if there is a trade-off in terms of tone VS esthetics between highly figured back and side wood compared to a relatively straight-grained version of the same wood.  For example, does flamed maple sound different from quilted maple and does either one sound different from unfigured maple?  Or is maple just maple regardless and the figuring doesn't have a significant effect on tone?  Same question for Mahogany, Koa or any other body wood.  Is there a difference in terms of sound?

I think this is a good question.  I have both flamed maple and quilted maple back/sides on Larrivee's (2-D & 1-L models).  I love the sound of maple and I personally cannot say I notice any significant difference between the flamed and quilted backs.  The top wood and size/shape of the guitar is what I think makes the most difference.  The only unfigured maple I have is an archtop with rock maple back/sides with a spruce top an is not likely a good comparison to a flat top...

Those are all great examples ! Such beautiful guitars.

I think I will try to find a Larrivée or order a custom one which would have a mid-grade quilt. On the web (with other makers), I saw some quilted back which were too over the top. Like L07, I prefer more subtle figure. Those examples you all provided are all tasty in my opinion.

Thank you very much for your help !

Well, there is some over the top quilt that is nice...  whistling

That said, just to see some of the luthiers in the list, I do not think I can even approach the money needed !

Kurt I have never found much of a difference in tone whether the maple was plan,flamey or quilted and I've owned and played a lot of maple body guitars.Plus you don't play the back of guitars.Now this is just MO and you may hear a slite  difference but thats any two guitars even one's build from the same tree.

Makes perfect sense, Rob.
