I love the look of it as it is but it is hard not to with spectacular wood. It would be a pleasure to look at either way but it just flows around the guitar. Rather than both sides drawing your attention to the end graft (which normally is a treat anyway) the lines have you view the sides as wrapping themselves all the way around the guitar. Bruce did a wonderful job of lining the sides up, way better than the example picture would suggest. But he has been pulling off multi-piece backs with you really having to look and guess where the joint is. And he makes it look easy.

I like that it carries through the back center strip. You still get the sweep across the butt end, but it looks very classy this way.
