We're going with Bloodwood for the binding and other accents. Bloodwood is very red and tends to stay red more than any other wood:

This guitar is getting a very nice Adirondack top:

This guitar will be a short scale 24.75"
14 frets to the body
Full body small jumbo size 16" lower bout
Back to the first guitar:
I wanted to try something different with the back graft and since I think the best color to go with red is black (imo) I thought I'd go with a Gabon Black Ebony graft, and really bring it up to a high polish. I did my "H" logo in Bloodwood to keep the red theme going:
