Takamine eg523sc spalted maple vs flamed maple

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to buy a Takamine eg523sc-spt which has a spalted maple back and sides. I also believe it has a cedar top. (Different sites have different info) The other eg523sc, I'm looking at, has flamed maple top, sides and back. I'm a strummer with little intentions of finger picking right now. My first choice is the spalted maple version, pretty much because of the looks. I don't want to pay $699 and end up with something that doesn't sound like what I'm wanting. I've played the flamed maple a couple of times and love the feel and ease of play!!

I'm wanting to know if the spalted maple produces a different, warmer tone or if it's just as bright as the flamed maple? Does anyone have any experience with either one of these guitars?
