No clue. A buddy in Georgia let me look at the price list he gets from Martin. I noticed the Braz. too. This is retail though and not what is actually charged.

I would imagine that NLA stands for "no longer available".

As shown in the link above from Shadowfox, it appears to be "rift" or even "board" cut (not quartersawn). It's pretty and probably sounds just fine, but it's not as popular for buyers.

I almost choked when I saw the $50K plus up charge for Brazilian Rosewood.....cough, cough.
