Just bought this essence floating on ebay germany - its been spotted there previously back in 2005, see picture here: http://alembic.com/club/messages/395/23354.html. The flame figure does indeed look like that picture, might just pass as a koa top. Sold, however, as flame maple.

Those woods have really different colours, it's hard to mistake one for the other: koa is kind of an orangy brown, maple is yellow.
The picture on the other thread was posted by Dave Houck, who said he adjusted it - presumably to bring out the flame figuring, but probably darkening the colour in the process. That one looks like maple to me.
