@CotL – You could get at least $500 a set for those Brazilians. I think I’d pocket the money and just get another set of Indian Rosewood (which is arguably just as good acoustically) or something exotic that you’ve never used before in a guitar.

As for the most exotic wood I’ve ever used, it’s probably Austrailian (Tasmanian) Blackwood, but who knows how truly rare it is? I’ve also used Gabon ebony, which is probably rare mostly because of its price.

Koa gets more rare each day, and that’s probably the one wood I’d LIKE to work that I haven’t…though being from the same family as the above blackwood, it’s probably similar.
