Beautiful sound.  Yes, the traditional wood for a flamenco guitar's back & sides is cypress.  It was cheap and sounded good; not a lot of sustain for the percussive effect the gypsies wanted.  That sounds really, really good.  What is the name of the piece you're playing?  It sounds so familiar, but I can't come up with a name.

Thanks Rob N Nackey- Yes I am nicely surprised with this tone wood. The tune is "Macpherson's Lament" but I am kinda sailing thru it quickly.

Nice instrument Bob. I built two cypress top dulcimers on cherry and butternut. I think cypress is an underrated wood that deserves more attention. Cypress has a bit more mellow tone than spruce that improves with age. And it's a nice wood to work with... Robert

 

Robert, thank you and I sure agree with you about Cypress. I've read it is popularly used on flamenco guitars and also arch-top guitars and mandolins. I like how it works and finishes too, and it has a really pleasant scent. As a nice soft soundboard, I prefer it over Butternut in some ways.

What a beauty, and it sounds great! Nice combination of woods, Bob!

Thanks Steven. It's my first use of Yellow Cypress (came from Canada) and I love it! As soft as Butternut but with a far more regular grain and uniformity of color. It really does a good job.
