I am willing to run out of Brazilian Rosewood. While I do believe that there is no directly equivalent alternative, I also believe that it is not required to make a world-class guitar. If there were no BRW, the world would not be a poorer place. I usually build 2 or 3 a year from BRW, and while I may indeed be productive for another 5 or 6 years, I am not counting on it.

I have pictures here of the latest OMish closed and ready to bind. I also include some bonus pictures illustrating one the hazards of using not quite straight grained wood of any species. Fortunately, I have a lot of stray pieces of BRW, and was able to replace the cutaway section of the sides with a piece similar enough to satisfy me.
