The choice of wood for the top is the most important decision to be made. 
I have my preferences and they all make a fine guitar when braced properly. 

Red spruce is used to make a more modern bluegrass machine. While torrefied Sitka is used to make a nice broken-in, resonant guitar with clear trebles. 
Lutz makes a very "tonefull" guitar. Similar to a well broken in Red Spruce top with a warm mid-range voice.
These can be paired with either Torrefied Sitka bracing or regular Sitka depending on what type of guitar you are looking for. 
Wait time is currently 6-12 months.
