Flame or Quilt
I'm a flame man myself :top:

12-01-2012, 12:43 PM
I gotta choose one only???!!? I won't. You can't make me.

I want both

and a standard

or 2

hell - I'll take them all. Just hook them up to your computers and shove them through the interweb...

12-01-2012, 12:46 PM
yup only ONE ahaha
am I evil? :rofl::rofl::rofl:

12-01-2012, 01:00 PM
I'll take all those quilts no one wants!

12-01-2012, 01:30 PM
Quilt. :rock:

12-01-2012, 01:32 PM
I've been on a quilt kick for a few years, so voted that way, but to be honest I think I'll try a flame again the next time I get a guitar - that is as long as I can avoid seeing a certain double sided HB quilt first.

Big wide flame please.

Flame job for me!

12-01-2012, 02:17 PM
Like asking Blond or Brunette, the only answer is both.

If I really had to pick, it would be quilt.

I guess I'm in the same boat. I tend to think that I prefer quilt but then I put flame on my PS.

It just depends on the guitar.

12-01-2012, 02:26 PM
Of those choices, I pick flame, but on my PS I chose one piece burl.

12-01-2012, 02:52 PM
I'm a flamer.

I love quilts on other people guitars. Out of my double digit collection I only own two quilts, one production and one custom build where I chose. Everything else are flame tops. I can't explain but when it's time to pull the wallet out, flame wins out.

Flame on.

though being an opaque lover...

Quilt for sure
looks like phosphorescent water ripples

12-01-2012, 06:19 PM
flame, the quilt tops just look ridiculous to me

12-01-2012, 10:13 PM
I honestly have no preference either way. If it isn't a Goldtop :-) , then I like a top that has what I consider a nice character about it. By that I mean not too perfect, not too symmetrical in the bookmatching. Having as many lines and fibers as possible line up just so is something that I know is paramount to some people, but not to me. As long as the center seam is done correctly, then any other aspects of a top will probably be fine by me.

And first and foremost to me, above all else, is the sound, feel, build quality, etc.

Tight chevron flame all the way!

12-01-2012, 11:25 PM
I've had some nice quilts over the years, but I tend to go for flame tops.

Nope! But heck, how often have I given you an opportunity by posting lately?

12-01-2012, 11:40 PM
Flame as wide as wide can be with some chevron!!

Perhaps you'll give me a few more?

Pick a card, brother.

Quilt, I like the uniqueness every one offers

12-02-2012, 08:42 PM
I've tried to like quilt - I even owned a very nice one.... a VERY nice one.

They just don't work for me....The one's "quilt guys" go bonkers for? Look like the background on a bad velvet Elvis painting at some garage sale... ;)

Always liked FLAME - Flame maple tops and necks just do it for me. :D
This guitar will pop up used some day and I'm going to grab it! Flame top and Flame neck!

But it's all good - the guys that like quilt are not trying to scoop up my prized flame wood and I'm not after their velvet. WIN WIN! :p

I love good quilt (especially tubular), but there's something about a deep chevron book matched fiddleback.

Whoa. That's a big scary commitment for a timid woodland creature like me!
