    I agree. I've seen some absolutely beautiful flame and quilted cherry. Played one or two guitars with a cherry neck and the only issue is they neck-dive.

    Another wood I'd like to see more of, and I suspect we might from some manufacturer, is figured Myrtle. Some of that stuff you'd swear was private stock grade maple. I saw it while I was pilfering through a lumber yard who supplies PRS, that G brand, that F brand, and some old acoustic company that starts with M.

    The first myrtlewood top PRS PS was made for me from wood I took to Stevensville. I don’t have it anymore.

    I also had the first Suhr (my wood), but it’s gone, too. Breedlove has made a lot of acoustics from myrtle.

    Steve there’s nothing else I can say about your wood that hasn’t already been said!
