I'm sick as a dog at home so I have nothing better to do than check if I'm alone when it comes to preference of direction of flamed maple on guitar tops... In my humble opinion a flamed maple top on a guitar is a turn off for me IF the direction of the figuring 'points down' so to say. You see, when it comes to guitars I've always found them resemble an arrow, with the headstock being the arrowhead and the body being the fletching(feather part). Therefor, everytime I see a guitar like this: I can't help but not want it at all. It's like the 'feathers' are pointing in the wrong direction! I see PRS probably do this the most. Respect the arrow and lets all try to move in the same direction shall we! Anyone else have an opinion on this? Or have I yet another thing confirming my insanity?
