Thanks for the question and looking at my work. I may refer to the wood that you are talking about as Fiddle Back Maple. If so the answer is yes. Here is an example of what I call moderate Fiddle Back. The picture just does not do it. To see the beauty of this wood you must hold it in your hand. It almost looks like you can look deep into the wood. I put a diamond design on these grips and think they turned out really nice. As with any wood block that you are book matching, you just don't know how beautiful it will be until you split it open. Magic happens when the split is made.
