There's also a full abalone top border and rosette treatment.

"This is yet another great instrument by luthier Brian Applegate -- from the beauty of the woods, to the top-notch craftsmanship, to the killer tone and setup, this guitar hits all the right notes. The Brazilian has an incredible flamed figure, and the Cedar sounds as warm as it looks. There's a restrained elegance that I really love in this guitar, and I think it would be perfect for fingerstyle or strumming." - Paul Heumiller
"Very nice instrument with good, balanced tones and nice projection. This would make a nice all-round instrument for any acoustic style." - Al Petteway
