Yes, that *is* a beautiful oud. If by "front plate" you mean the soundboard, that straight grain wood top does not resemble any maple wood I have seen. Are you sure about that?

I agree that it looks like cedar. I was saying it did not look like maple.

the Oud was sold to me by Ethnic music and this was the description I was given "It is a very nice oud indeed, and of course Syrian, made by Ali Khalife Family from Damascus.
Top is a single plate Cedar like you was looking for, and the back is full walnut."
I trust they are correct. It looks like Cedar to me and is the typical colour of Cedar wood also. The Oud is their Premium1 quality.
