Sounds way more badass than "rosewood"
Just a point about the woods ...
The real "Jacaranda" loved by luthiers is the Dalbergia, that is called " Brazilian Rosewood" or " Jacaranda da Bahia", just ask the classic guitar players ... others are others, but you have the Indian Rosewood ....
The Cedar that Leandro said doesn´t have anything with the North America Cedar, with is coniferous tree. The Cedar that where used is the Brazilian Red Cedar ( also wrong called Pinkwood ), more similar to mahogany ( but more bright) and to Australian Cedar ...
