I feel exactly the same way. To me' date=' Quilt Top looks like some gross, melting, sopping wet silk blanket.[/quote']

Another one here for the anti-quilt brigade. I just don't like it, it looks a bit messy, I'd take a flame top over quilted any day.

 

 

Although I ought to add that I somehow manage not to have a guitar with either top at the moment!

 

Also - this is just a personal preference, and I mean no offense to anyone who is a quilt lover #-o There's room for everything in my book! I do like plain tops too. I guess it all comes down to the individual guitar. But I don't like that Tak Les Paul - apart from the quilt maple I don't like the inlays - I think they clash with the bright orange top. It most likely plays and sounds great - just - for me - it looks a right mess!

I like 'em all, except plains, their just too...plain. My quilt dont look like a wet blanket, mine kinda reminds me of water, Christ I put a decent shine on it, and you'd swear you could dive right into it.

Ahhhhh... BUT some of us find there is sheer beauty in plain (simplicity) =P~

I like maple better than mahogany' date=' and I do have to admit that I like flame maple. And spalted maple. Has anyone made a solidbody guitar out of walnut? Very popular for gun stocks, but not so much for guitars.[/quote']

 

the original Gibson The Pauls were made of soild walnut i think.
