Handmade Cocobolo Dreadnought Guitar
Ever since Jay built Tom Gossin’s custom guitar, a Cocobolo Dreadnought, he has been aching to build with Cocobolo again. This go-round he used Cocobolo for the back and sides, Englemann Spruce for the top, Curly Koa binding, Ebony for the fretboard and bridge and Brazilian Rosewood and Pearl for the rosette. This guitar has a K&K pick-up.
As a lifelong woodworker and cabinetmaker, I had a critical eye on your instruments and found them to be flawless pieces of craftsmanship. The real treasure was in the sound though! I loved the deep sweet tone of the Cocobolo Guitar that I was privileged enough to play and the ease with which it played. – Dale Rucker
