What kind of wood is the top. Is that a crazy wide grained spruce? Looking good!

this thing came out so sweet...it has a three piece back (from home depot) and a red ceder top ( a little unusual).the peghead and fingerboard are ebony,and everything else is the usual stuff. i tried to get the destressed look. so what'cha think? it's been strung up for three days but is sounding great. the volume is okay and the notes are really crisp.hope it gets stronger i time.............keith

I dig the way the grain of that cedar flows over the scroll peak. Very pretty.
