I would refer you to Kent for insights to that.

I can tell you that the Wenge guitar is clearer sounding and has more shimmer which many perceive as more open sounding (my wife prefers this one I think) but the BRW guitar has rich, but more focused overtones and a thicker sound to its voice. The weight difference really surprised me. I am wondering how much lighter the tru-oil finish is than the nitro finish? Any how, I still need to play them some more...

Everything else being equal, do you think it's the woods that account for the sonic differences?

Two gorgeous guitars - I enjoyed following the build threads. Thanks for sharing!
