Cocobolo is an extremely vibrant wood that comes to us from the Pacific side of Latin America.
The grain of Cocobolo can vary from straight with a prominent striped appearance to wavy with occasional spider webbing.
It is the densest rosewood that I offer, with a specific gravity that can vary from .8 to 1.1.
I prefer Cocobolo on full size guitars and it is a wonderful choice for a baritone.
Cocobolo reflects tone brilliantly.
It is percussive, dynamic, robust and, oh yes -- there is sustain for days…
