    I matched up some tops today and left them in the sun to dry off the shellac.
    Three of them are rift sawn and the other two are flat sawn. Mostly Eastern Maple.

    BBq is not a flame per se' but please refer to the chart that LPcollector provided...that one is pretty darn close to a fiddleback/curl.....Nice guitar! :thumb:

    To be more specific....there are guidelines that wood suppliers use to "grade" and categorize. I think there are guidelines that govern how close or how wide the "stripes" are, compared to one another.....say for instance you measure how many lines per inch....that sort of thing....if you look through the thread in the first few pages there are some links....look at those and derive your own conclusion. It is a loose kind of thing as well; its not so stringent because its wood and more of a natural thing of beauty, rather than a hard, rule driven concept. Delawaregold posted some photos from BOTB I think that publication is an excellent guide.

    So without a full picture of the face of the guitar, it appears (to me) as you said....Its also looks to be a chevron.... :hmm:

    you are right but the thing is that depending on the angle of view the stripes chance dramatically. take a look on pic 3 and 4 of my guitar i posted. its the same part but on a different angle of view. on pic 3 looks like tiger stripe and on pic 4 like a pin stripe because the stripes split in two if you change the angle due to the 3D effect..

    Please correct my observations if I am misguided.
    I thought 1/4 sawn was cut from or on the 1/4 of log.
    Example 9:00 ,12:00,3:00 and 6:00 positions and would show
    The growth rings vertical in the end grain of a billet .And in
    The figure it shows the growth rings on a
    90 degree intersection with flame pattern( this is
    What I believed to be 1/4 sawn) like pinstripe ,
    Ribbon curl or fiddle back( correct me if I'm wrong) It almost
    Seems more prevelent in these types of figure not as much in quilt
    .Is it due to the log being of a smaller diameter ,Where the rings would be tighter due to a smaller diameter is this a
    Correct assumption?i tried not to be confusing.sorry if I was .

    I think this is exactly the kind of info this thead needs. Thanx for posting. Anyone with the knowledge of how the flame came to be it is most needed for this thread.
