im wondering, do the quilted maple tops affect the sound at all? the black version doesnt have it but the other two with designs are quilted maple tops. i kinda like the black and its cheaper but wonder if the maple top helps the clean high end? (i think maple is usually a bright sounding wood, at least for acoustic). might just get the classic anyways but still like to know.

I think it has a little impact on the sound but I don't think it's really really noticeable.

the reason its cheaper is cause of the quilt costs more to do. mainly asthetic although it will add slightly (really ****ing slightly) to the tone.
however you would need one HELL of an ear to be able to tell the difference.

Edit: also the emgs mostly count out any chance of a decent cleans anyway so i wouldnt worry,
all emg snobs who say they can coax good cleans out, I know its possible to get passable cleans but they just wont be as good as say a nice passive humbucker or singlcoil, thats the price you pay for br00t4lz.

Correct me if I'm wrong,but that's not an actual "top" but just a thin veneer of figured maple.
