I found a sweet playing Elan, but the dark top wood is a mystery to me.
It's colored like Cocobolo, but the grain is too straight & choppy.

Straight-grained coco bolo can be seen on the Coco Bolo Fantasy Featured Custom.

The coloring looks like Coco Bolo to me too. Another possibility might be Bubinga.

Could it be Vermilion?

I don't think it's Bubinga.
It doesn't have the signature splotchiness like my old Vector Persuader:
