I am trying a violin that has a back made with bird's eye maple. The violin looks very beautiful and sounds amazing. The violin is made by a maker that has won numerous VSA awards. However, I have heard/read that the resell on violins made with bird's eye maple is not that great and are considered less desirable and inferior to flamed maple violins. Does anyone have any experience or advice they can share about this?
