Maple (Fiddle-back / Curly / Tiger) (Acer saccharum - Eastern US) The term fiddleback comes from the use of this extraordinarily unusual grain pattern in the manufacture of musical instruments, most commonly associated with the famous luthier Antonio Stradivarius. Stradivarius built many of his violins using this type of figure on the backs of his violins, hence the term "fiddleback." r
