Going through my wood stash and can't remember what type of back and sides set this is. I got it on ebay @ 10 yrs ago, finally getting back to building instruments, trying anyway... Anyone got an idea?
Thanks!

Hi, Allen. Since I'm not seeing a lot of suggestions, I'm guessing Pau Ferro, aka Morado.

I was really uncertain before reading responses but Pau Ferro was my first guess so I'm happy to chime in :^)
