Flame Maple

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by matthewfoote, Dec 29, 2004.


  1. I have the urge to look at some flame maple [yes I know I'm sick and twisted].

    Any nice examples out there that you good people can share with me?

    Thanks

    Matthew

    Here's a picture of my Elrick Gold series 5. It's got a nice flame maple top finished in tung oil.

    A little light flame.
     
  13. Wow :hyper:

    These are all fantastic shots of some great basses. The different finishes really show the flame in a number of ways which to me is an indication of how versitile the wood is in the way it can be finished.

    Alembicfive, I would hate to look at your Carvin if I had a hangover! that is some wicked flame. :bassist:

    Thanks guys and keep them coming.

    Regards

    Matthew
