What about Sepele for guitar building? Or as a substitute for mahogany.

Chardo, in my opinion Sapele makes a wonderful guitar. The pictures is of an OM sized crossover I made that takes nylon strings.
It is beautiful under the french polish and sounds great.

You can find some nice quilted Sepele, way cheaper than quilted mahogany.

I agree with Kevin and John; sapele looks good and is a nice wood to work. I think I paid about $15 a set for this...
