Wood:

Common Name(s): Curly maple, fiddleback maple, tiger maple, flamed maple, rippled maple

Botanical Designation: Not a distinct species of maple. Curly maple is considered a grain pattern that can be found in nearly all Acer species.

Distribution: Primarily temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere

While flame maple (also known as figured maple, curly maple or fiddleback maple) had long been used to the backs and necks of guitars and other stringed instruments such as the violin, it was the use of this striking timber in 1958 to 1960 Gibson Les Pauls that really made it desirable when used to create the two-piece, book-matched carved tops on these guitars. Flame maple is found only in a small percentage of maple trees and the really eye-popping examples come from less than one percent. Most people do not realize that the flame is not the actual grain pattern of the wood. It actually runs perpendicular to the grain direction, which is why some maple tops appear to have patterns running front-to-back and side-to-side. The rippled, 3-D look to flame maple is caused by a phenomenon known as chatoyancy.

Bulldog Music Gear can confirm that the natural woolfelt used or silicone bumpers used on its instrument stands, do not react with most of the guitar finishes in the market today, including Nitrocellulose.  However, each manufacturer has their own composition of Nitrocellulose, with different proportions of the chemicals involved. There are numerous variations of lacquer in use today, making it impossible for us to know what type is used exactly. Therefore, to provide your instrument with the best support, we recommend you to refer to your instrument's owners manual for more information regarding the proper storage of your instrument.

Remember that wood is a natural product.  Certain wood patterns cannot be guaranteed on your stand.  The pictures we are showing do not imply that you will get the exact same wood pattern.  Every tree has roughly the same patterns but every tree is different.  Sometimes there are more flames, sometimes there are more lines.  This makes your stand unique.  There is no second one with the same woodgrain.
