I'm not worried about it. I saw the lack of finesse in the rosette. Thank you for the feedback. I am well ahead in finding flea market treasures so I expect to have a learning experience or two.

Do kit guitars come with that quality of rosewood?

I agree with the assessment that this is an amateur build. The soundhole is very rough, and the holes for the tuners are too big for the rollers. The "rosewood" could be laminated, in which case it will look nice. You said you bought this guitar? Once you have it in hand, you'll be able to assess it better, I should think. Hopefully it sounds good!

I haven't tried it with new strings just rolled the dice. Hmmm thank you for the information. He has expressed some seller's remorse I may take him up on that. I just have to decide whether it is worth shipping from Florida to Vermont

Hard to know, this does look as if its 30 something years old. Sometimes a beginner can ask for the best quality wood because they're only going to build one. So might be done from the early " How to Build " books. 50 years ago Brazilian was still available, though this looks more like Indian. It's such a mixture of good and bad.

I did get a stewmac kit with some not bad Indian Rosewood.

Good luck with your search.
