Subj: Grenadilla/African Blackwood: another equipment posting

Subject header notwithstanding, I've been thinking about the age-old R13
vs. Prestige topic. I can't afford the $2825.00 quoted from [famous
supplier] but am still interested in finding out about the Buffet
Prestige instruments. I've read in the archives a posting to the effect
that the Prestige(s) are built from Grenadilla, and the Poor Boy R-13s
from African Blackwood. Does anyone have the facts on this? Are the woods
different?
