Four or five years ago I purchased some tone wood sets off of EBay in the hope I would start building some guitars. Well I'm finally getting to it.

During our home remodel last year I have misplaced my paperwork on what I bought. I am not an expert on the different woods.

I would appreciate any assistance here. I think I know most of them, but would like some other, more knowledgeable eyes on these.

Thanks,
Gary

4 is either maple or cherry for sure, and I am pretty sure it is Cherry.

Dang I wish I could find my paperwork on these sets.
