Yes indeed, brother. Curly Koa all around. It pulls out the golds in that walnut, and gives some domestic "shazaam" as accent.

Since I flunked out on the Claro, what woods are on the headstocks? I have a feeling if we know that, we might just know what the back and sides are made from?

Kevin is correct, top headstock is Claro burl. Bottom is Dalbergia Nacogdochia, or the rosewood formerly known as Brazilian.
And yes, they correspond to their respective body woods.

What's the neck wood on the top one, Steve? Maybe it's just the light, but it doesn't look like mahogany. Can't wait for the next reveal!

Right you are, it's walnut. Curly Black walnut, with a curly mahog center lam.
That should tie in nicely with the curly Koa bindings.
