    Default source for small piece of well flamed maple for headstock?

    I did a pretty exhausting search online over the weekend and struck out; thought I might have better luck asking the pro's-- I'm looking for a single piece A5 sized headstock overlay of well flamed maple (like 1/8" thick). I'm doing a lake-tribute project and want the flame-pattern to mimic ripples in sand , so it has to be pretty tightly flamed. I'll post a wanted ad in the classifieds and donate to the cafe- just thought I'd see if any pro builders know of a source for this kind of thing- you probably don't surf the want-ads. Thanks in advance!

    Contact Bruce Harvie at Orcas Island Tonewoods. If he can't supply it he can tell you who can.

    lmii.com sells head plates of a wide variety of woods, including flamed maple. I've purchased a number of them there, and it's always been really nice looking wood.
