It’s rosewood I’m sure, as all the vintage accounts mentioned. Plus it looks like BRW. But it’s uncommonly smooth. They may have finished it. I’m goin to try oiling it to see if absorbs anything. Rather than replace frets- which are in good condition- I’m going to address the “hump” at 14-15 frets and send it off

It’s going to a friend who doesn’t know he’s getting it
