Tons of input, great!

BTW: The "Old Capri" had just one truss rod and an unfinished fretboard.
- Maybe that was the same time they used ovangkol? These little "cheeks" at the headstock were during those days, too.

The center strip looks to be Ovangkol (assuming it is not some obscure species that was/is sold as ovangkol, which can happen with exotic species), the wings, I'd say are less clear. They sometimes look a bit different to me.
