today my curiosity towards my recently aquired guitar drove me to the brink of insanity.
i took a 1 cm by 1 cm scratch of paint off from inside the spring/claw housing
i was very surprised to see the wood ( or materal) looks extremly similar to a dry rosewood fretboard. seemings it was made in india, is it a possibility that its made entirely from indian rosewood?
the grains are very tight and the wood is a chalky brown

possible, but unlikely.maybe mahogany of some sorts?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Flash shot makes it look like badly weathered pine :p

Unflash, I would suggest some kinda mahogany, perhaps? Is it very heavy?

To me that wood looks like it's laminated! The large grain lines look too uniform and evenly spaced to be growth induced.
Moving on.....

That did cross my mind too. Any chance of taking more off, OP? :P

Yep, now that I have pics I say: Plywood.
