Very nice John, professionally done!  The Australian Blackwood has a beautiful pattern.  Is that a good tonewood? I haven't seen it used all that often, but it seems it has become popular recently.

Thanks!  Aussie Blackwood is indeed a nice wood.  It is an acacia so a cousin of Koa and VERY similar sounding.

Nice work!
I am working on an all curly blackwood tenor right now.
My wood seems to have a nice bright ring on the tap tone. Hope it sounds good!! I also have BW leftovers big enough for a sm concert. I might try it with a ceader top and cocobolo binding like yours!!
