Cherry, 'lumberyard eastern maple', oak? Can any of you wood mavens out there identify it?

Geez, it almost looks like . . . pine. Nah, can't be . . .

Nope, it's not pine. It's a hardwood, pretty tough stuff. Pretty sure it's oak, whether red or white I know not. Tho there are other woods: chestnut (that escaped the blight), sassafras, american sycamore, willow, spanish cedar, hickory. Dunno exactly what they look like. This stuff looks most like oak.

If you really want to know send me a splinter and I will put it under the microscope.

I think this back was destined for a lefty instrument because the asymmetric grain pattern is tighter on what is now the treble side after its conversion from righty to lefty.

I'm starting to wonder if it ain't poplar.
