Is this beech?

To me, the bass side absolutely looks like beech. Trouble is, the treble side absolutely does not. What does the neck look like from various angles? I like the open throat of this scroll. Is it a Markneukirchen scroll of higher than usual quality?

Yes that’s what I thought as well. I wonder if it might be plane, but I tried to locate the listing of the instrument and it seems to have disappeared.

Jim’s example doesn’t look much like the OP scroll, so I’m inclined to agree with Jacob that it’s maple after all.
