Yes the string guide is purple heart, the bridge is purple and yellow but for some reason the color changed.
Thanks for commenting.

Purpleheart saw dust makes some kool inlay & fret markers?

Lots of people bang on Thompson, but those cigars are actually a good smoke, is that purpleheart on the string retainer? I like that bridge, I had some European arch tops with mahogany/rosewood bridges almost exactly like that?

Very handsome git. Lots of nice details. Now trim those strings before you put your eye out!
