To follow up:
Here are a couple of pics of the guitar that resulted from my "line and berry" rosette project (search for separate post).
She is named "Cereza" (cherry).

Nicely done. What is the back and side wood? I would have assumed cherry, but it looks too figured, more like zebrawood or something...

zebrawood? nice looking guitar and the cherry idea is interesting. a cherry rosette would definitey be cool --especially if the cherries are tart and not sweet.
be true to the one you love but have many flings with different guitars

I like it! Very subtle yet very appealing.

Very pretty guitar! I made an instrument from Zebrawood a few years back. Interesting wood to work with...Don't be fooled into thinking it's the stripes that gives the wood it's name...for weeks my shop smelled like a herd of zebras took a dump in the corner somewhere...

Haha Scot, the term 'Zebrella odorata' comes to mind
