About Cocobolo: Cocobolo grows from southwestern Mexico through western Central America – one of the world’s most colorful woods. Reaching as much as 80 feet in height and three feet in diameter it is known for its dynamic grain patterns of browns, oranges and yellows.  Cocobolo is part of the same Dalbergia family as Brazilian and other rosewoods, however it is unique in its brown/orange/yellow color and is the densest of the Dalbergia woods. In fact, cocobolo has a specific gravity of 1.1 which means it sinks in water, compared with Brazilian rosewood with a specific gravity of 0.84. Likewise, the pounds per cubic feet or cocobolo is 69 compared to 52 for Brazilian rosewood. Learn more.

About Adirondack SpruceAdirondack spruce has been the choice of bluegrass pickers for decades, and seems to add power to any guitar design. If it’s loud you want, Adirondack is for you. Adirondack is even more dynamic than Sitka spruce, and has a higher ceiling for volume. You can strum an Adirondack-topped guitar aggressively without distortion or loss of clarity. For the aggressive player who wants volume and clarity without distortion; the player or collector who wants the vibe of a pre-war guitar. Like Sitka, it has strong fundamentals and responds well to either a light or firm touch, but has higher resonance and exhibits a more complex overtone content. Adirondack is relatively heavy, with a high velocity of sound, and has the highest stiffness of all top woods across and along the grain. New-growth Adirondack tends to be wider-grained and more irregular in color and grain patterns, than vintage pre-war Adirondack. Creamy white in color. Read more.
