    I know there are lots of Tacoma Thunderchief owners here. A question: Anybody ever seen one of these with gloss-finished rosewood back and sides, bound body and neck? I just bought one used and the photos appear that this is the case. I've only seen mahogany and maple used for back and side construction, and the Tacoma website doesn't list rosewood as an option. I'm wondering what I've bought...guess I'll see when it arrives.

    Mike, I'm pretty sure I've seen these on Elderly's site - you may want to poke around over there.
