Hello Ron
The cedar aka cedro , of the neck , is from Brasil .
I forget the botanical name for it - it has the cedro aroma , but it is more subtle , and the wood is harder .
Cheerds , Jim

Totally gorgeous Jim. That Brazilian on the back is stunning, as is your aesthetic work.

Stunning. Having played your instruments, I bet this one has a killer sound.

Such a beautiful guitar. Wish I could afford something like that.
