I was going to change direction a bit on my build challenge guitar that I will be finishing off soon. I got a coupon code from Bow River Woods, where I order my tops from, so I ordered a nice maple burl drop top. I had glued up an alder blank for the challenge build, and I'm not sure if I should use the burl top with it. Usually with maple I'd use a darker wood like walnut or mahogany. I need some opinions here. I'm thinking if I do use these woods, I'll probably stain the alder a bit dark or tint the lacquer a bit and leave the burl a bit lighter, maybe with an amber stain. I'll put plastic cream binding around the edge as well. What do you folks think?
