The first thing you noticed was the guitar, and then wondered what type of wood it was made from.

Or maybe it’s just old age knocking…. LOL

I’ll bet the top is simply sitka or engelman spruce that is common for guitar tops. It often has a ‘curly’ cross pattern in it, the good tops do anyway, and the stain on the top is bringing that out.

Old age? That never gets old.
