Thanks Muzikp and nblades.
The the center block on the Firebird is maple sandwiched between two pieces of purple heart. The backs of the wings are also purple heart and the tops are curly maple.
I have not glued the wings to the center block yet, mainly because I didn't have a neck for the body yet. Without a working neck I couldn't place the bridge. After I route the neck pocket (hopefully in the next week or two) I'll drill the post holes for the bridge.
