I am looking at buying an ESP EC 1000 and the specs say quilt top. What does this mean? Thanks

It mean's its got the construction of a bed, with a shallow mattress like material on the bottom and a firm top covering it.


It's actually a version of maple top, it's the wavy "quilt" look wood grain.

It's sort of the opposite of a "flamed" top.

It describes the pattern of the woodgrain of the top slab of the guitar, which in many cases is made of a different wood, usually maple, because the grain is nice.


Quilt actually looks like there is a blanket 'in' the wood.





while flame has straighter lines, and sort of looks like the grain is on fire or something.

This curly wood figuring is called "quilted".
