With several wood experts found my 1977 Standard has Brazilian wood, confirmed! I know my wood very well growing up in a shop and mill. I always thought it was special. How many of you fine folks have this redish hue in your mid 70s,? Kris? http://www.wood-database.com/brazilian-rosewood/ Even at this site it describes the red in the grain. So many Norlins have this beautiful wood when they first opened Nashville.
