Exceptional tonewoods for the discerning artisan

Cocobolo Guitar Sets

Cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa) occurs along the Pacific seaboard of Central America from Mexico to Panama. When freshly cut, the heartwood shows an array of colors from lemon orange to deep rich red with pronounced dark variegated streaks. As the wood matures, it oxidizes to a deep brown-red with dark streaks. Tonally Cocobolo is known for power; strong projection and increased sustain make it a favorite for most luthiers and it is well suited for many playing styles. You can expect a clear glass-like tone with good individual note articulation. Cocobolo can be an irritant and cause a form of dermatitis so take precautions when sanding and sawing.
