I have a '67 Martin D28 BWR, a -73 Martin D41 EIRW, both of those have spruce tops, and a 2000 Santa Cruz OM with cocobolo back and sides and a gorgeous german spruce top. The '67 is deep and rich. The '73 is more balanced, yet still sounds better on the lower strings. The '00 Santa Cruz is the finest guitar I have ever played. It's perfect. In MY experience, with these particular, individual guitars, cocobolo RULES. Or maybe Richard Hoover is just a brilliant builder. Or both.
