Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood that carries sunrise hues of red, yellow, pink, and black, occasionally streaked with green, purple, and blue. In some boards, a creamy white sapwood borders the colorful heartwood.


Cocobolo is dense and stiff. with a fairly bright tone. Sonically, it resonates deep on the low end, and yet provides clear precise trebles. It has a great responsive attack, with good sustain. It exhibits strong resonance and rich overtones


Cocobolo  suits most  playing styles and suits guitarists who desire a Rosewood sound with  a little more brilliant high end treble.
