    What was the result?

    I am planning a build and have been considering going with either a flamed maple or quilted maple top. I have browsed their unique choices but really didn't see a piece that caught my attention. I am not expecting any super figured wood by any means. Anyone have good results with their random picks?

    I have never chosen my figured top and I've always been satisfied with their choice. All depends on how much you are willing to spend and what you are looking for.

    I bought a mahogany body with plain koa top. They chose the pieces, the mahogany was light and very pretty, the koa was beautifully bookmatched and had a nice subtle flame figure to it. Better than expected
