We do a model with that set of dimensions also, but it's not level 10 fancy like that one! beautiful work. Did you laminate the sides, or get the wood to bend ok?

Any notable tone differences with the maple vs. other woods you might have tried?

The sides are solid.
No problem bending the quilted Maple it actually bends pretty nicely since it is flat sawn.
I’ve only built a couple of this particular model.
The last one I did was hard maple back and sides and this one is soft maple and this one definitely sounds better.
