Oooh! I love cocobolo. This one will be fun to see and hear once it gets adorned with strings. But first Tim has to perform his magic.

Best,
Jayne

That is a beautiful back/side set! I've never been drawn to Cocobolo for sound, but I have a feeling it'll be different under your hands, Tim.

That's got to be the most amazing Cocobolo set I've ever seen! I wonder what the tree looked like?

Can't wait to see it finished and hear the sound.

Tim and I just listened to your You Tube. Oh my ... wonderful music.

Something is in my eye now. I can't see.

Coco is becoming one of my favorite woods--and that is surely an amazing set!

Here are a few more coo-coo Coco shots before heading out to the shop:

Someday this will be a slightly larger sound hole:










Sometimes it gets a bit messy...











Before it starts to resemble a rosette. In this case our client wants to go "Old School" on his design theme:

It's nice to see I am not the only one who names my guitars.
