How did it sound? Good, bad or indifferent?
Very nice work then. The back is bookmatched from the back view but I see no center strip on the inside, which makes me think it's laminated. That would make sense because it looks to be flat sawn. I'd go with rosewood too.
When you say gunstock material, do you mean walnut? It has a little of the appearance of paduak, but that darkens with age a bit more I'd say. Is the peghead veneer the same wood as the bridge?
Any chance of getting a peek at the inside? See what the brace layout is just out of curiosity.
