Perfect, as if the entire top was just spruce all the way through. Take a look at the picture I posted showing the change in the spacer design for newer RainSong tops.

Contrastingly, the outer edge of the top is the side finish looking a bit like binding.

The finish work on the V top looks very labor intensive and might explain the big upcharge.

Looking at all my pictures, it is possible RainSong has slightly modified the design of their tops for this veneered model. Maybe a little thicker spacer and maybe a little less CF fabric to make it lighter and at the same time similarly strong???
