Cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa)
A stunning set of cocobolo found its way into my workshop recently thanks to fellow guitar builder, Frank Cousins. Frank started building guitars in my workshop a few years ago and has completed a fine spruce/Maccasar ebony instrument and is well under way with several others. Frank has also been laying down stocks of fine timber for future guitars and recently acquired 2 sets of this spectacular cocobolo, and graciously offered me this one. This is fresh timber and is now slowly drying in my workshop but one day will make a stunning guitar.
