Thanks all.

Geoff, it is Indian rosewood bent into a circle and glued straight to the soundboard. All the braces around it also hold it in place with some glue. I'm on the fence about the triangle heel cap too. I still need to final sand the neck and make a couple more adjustments. I might further refine that into a sharper triangle or into a small semi circle. Easy with a detachable neck...
It is a good trademark !

Ah it is wood - nice. Easy to make a solid fix.

a variation on something I've seen... here is how a master luthier does it: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=99544&start=75

Although please exercise caution when clicking on the link... it is such a pretty guitar it may cause salivating and a custom order!

I read a warning about Wenge .If you get a splinter it will almost always turn septic . So don`t brush it with your hand .Use a small brush . I like the colour though .
