Creamy maple harp with golden-brown curly koa soundboard

Soundboard Veneers

We build our FH-series harps with a thin, book-matched hardwood veneer over the spruce-and-mahogany soundboard, which adds both structural stability and visual appeal. For most of our cherry and walnut harps, we use a figured cherry veneer, and we pair our other woods with a curly maple veneer (also called flamed maple). For those interested in something a little bit fancier, we offer two other options for custom soundboard veneers on any of our FH harps.

Bird's-eye Maple Veneer

This delicate maple veneer has a gorgeous three-dimensional appearance scattered with tiny "bird's eyes." It's a beautiful detail on the soundboard of any of our solid wood harps.

Please note that the density of the "eyes" can vary. If you are interested in bird's-eye veneer, give us a call and we'll take a look at the material we currently have in stock.

On FH34, FH36H or FH36S: $250

Koa Veneer and Trim

The warm sunset colors and curly figuration of koa veneer add a dramatic touch to any maple harp. (It just doesn't look that good with the colors of our other wood choices.) We use it not only for the soundboard veneer, but also for the base and capital.
