Okay! Here is the goods. Some of the stuff I thought I would have didn't pan out but there are a couple deals here. Thanks for looking!

First up is
1 set of ziricote
asking $125
status: Sold! To Lex
issues: there are cracks in the sapwood only on the back set, the sapwood on the sides is fine. The cracks in the back sap don't extend into the heartwood. The sides have a pin knot (see pic) and a small void(see pic) which would need to be filled. The void is 27 1/4 from the back and 2 3/4 from the top. The sides are longer than 31 but the was some parts that didn't sand out on the opposite side at one end. If you take your sides thin you could get an extra inch.
back set:8 3/4x23 3/4x.125
sides:6 1/4x31 1/4x.118

Next is
1 set of Moonscape sapele
asking $225
status: available

Issues: Not many! There are cracks in the sides at the top but completely avoiding those you still have a clean 5x34 side. The only issue which drops the price down from my normal $300 is that the figure gets slightly less intense at one end of the sides. If you use a shorter side(30-31), it isn't really an issue. This is a really beautiful set.
Back set:9 1/4x23x.16
sides:5x34(clean)x.125

Next up are 2 opportunity priced sets of Indian Rosewood. Both will make excellent guitars and are priced nice and low

EIR set 1
asking: $25
status: Sold! to Sam

issues: small area of mineral deposit in sides, knot shadow on back side of 1 back plate, should not show through if you sand from the back
back set: 8 1/2x22x.15
sides:5x34x.15

This photo is the last one in the post above, I don't know how to get it out and here, where it should be! Sorry.

EIR set 2
asking: $25
status: Sold! to Lillian

issues: small tiny knot/burl cluster in lower bout. It is stable. Some pinholes along the center seam, easily fixed. The sides go flat a bit at the end too. Has better color.
Back set:8 3/8x22 1/2x.15
sides:5x33x.125

And last but certainly not least is a perfect set of Brazilian Rosewood. This is grandfather wood resawn by me. It came off of the saw flat and hasn't moved. Deep chocolate/wine color with tight grain and big ink lines in the back, light spiderwebbing in the sides. All quarter to rift except the sides flat out a little at the very bottom. Excellent tap and has the great BRW smell. I realize it is very expensive, but it is a really great set.

asking: $1000
status: available

issues: the only thing I can find is a very small knot shadow in the sides(see photo)
back set:7 5/8-9x34x.135(low spots are .12)
sides:4 1/4-4 5/8x35x.14
