Cocobolo is a very wildly figured tropical hardwood. It’s very oily and difficult to work with, but, it makes a great back & side wood for an acoustic guitar. Cocobolo takes all the warm goodness of rosewood and combines it with the sweetness of koa. Not as bass-heavy as rosewood, but still boasts a strong bass response. Cocobolo is one of the more visually stunning, and wildly figured of the tonewoods.
