Recommended Posts

Hi i have been thinking of getting a custom build acustic guitar in the style of hummingbird custom, but with sitka spruch in top and cocobolo back and side all solid wood of course. Dose anyone have that kind of guitar? I have never played a cocobolo guitar but as i have heard it comes close with Brazilian rosewood which im a fan of.

Hi Hilmarg.   My current go to guitar is a western red cedar over cocobolo OM.   Coco is an absolute stunning tonewood but its somewhat problematic to work with.  It is related to rosewood and has that "rosewood" sound, whatever that means.   I think the cedar top on mine has more to do with the voice than anything else.
