    Sure. The three on the left are Birdseye Maple, Spruce and Spalted Maple with oil finishes. The one on the far right is Cherry.

    ...has a natural oil finish. I he uses Watco Oil for a finish, and Beezwax for a bit of a shine.

    It was an honest guess, but i don't belive it's basswood. most newer ibani are, but i didn't think this one was? in anycase, it's real purty in person.

    Here is a NS-4CR with a maple body. Not a very good pic, though.

    Here's a rather small pic of a previously owned Status. It was a beauty.
