I just love Cocobolo. From it's aesthetic qualities to its sound projection, just a wonderful wood species. Of course, I'm not a builder so I cannot speak to some of the rumors I've heard/read about its dust being a bit of an allergy/itch inducer for those that work with it. However, I did purchase a OO SP Coco Huss & Dalton from Lefty Guitars Only (Playin Dead/Vic) and it is just the most beautiful sounding, comfortable guitar. For a small bodied guitar, it is abnormally loud and I would venture that the Cocobolo has much to do with its projection.
