#18 Cocobolo parlor guitar

I was given this cocobolo (a central American rosewood) as a scrap from a woodworker who built a dining room table out of a big magnificent slab.  There was just enough width and length to make a parlor guitar.  This was paired with a sitka spruce soundboard, curly maple binding, richlite fingerboard, and an Alaskan yellow cedar neck.

The sound is very nice, balanced and ‘sweet’.  There is also a K&K TwinSpot under soundboard piezo pickup if you want to amplify this guitar.
