Cocobolo Acoustic Guitar Sides Set

Dalbergia retusa

The wood is very oily which makes it difficult to glue but on the plus side the oiliness makes it easy to produce a fantastic polish on finished pieces. Wear a respirator mask when working Cocobolo as the dust can produce asthma-like reactions. Cocobolo is a small to medium sized tree and is found mainly in Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Figured Genuine Mahogany Acoustic Guitar Back & Sides Set

Swietenia macrophylla

Also called Acajou, Tropical American Mahogany, and Honduras Mahogany. This medium to large tree occurs throughout Central and South America. Related to Cuban Mahogany (Swietenia mahogani) and Pacific Coast Mahogany (Swietenia humilis). It produces one of the classic furniture and cabinetmaking woods. The heartwood varies from a light reddish-brown to a rich, dark red. Generally straight grained and exceptionally stable, it is easy to machine, hand plane, sand and finish. Occasional logs produce several figures, curly, quilted, and the rare plum pudding figure which looks like large drips running down the board. Used in fine furniture and joinery, boat building, and in the guitar industry for acoustic sets and necks.

Cocobolo Acoustic Guitar Back & Sides Set

Dalbergia retusa

The wood is very oily which makes it difficult to glue but on the plus side the oiliness makes it easy to produce a fantastic polish on finished pieces. Wear a respirator mask when working Cocobolo as the dust can produce asthma-like reactions. Cocobolo is a small to medium sized tree and is found mainly in Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Due to CITES regulations, we can only ship this species to customers in the United States.
