Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood from Central America. It is typically orange or reddish-brown in color. It presents a figuring of darker irregular traces weaving through the wood that add to its stunning beauty. The sapwood is a creamy, with a sharp boundary with the heartwood. Cocobolo changes color after it is cut, and this lends to its appeal. It is very hard, fine textured and dense making it the hardest and densest Tropical wood of the Dalbergia family (Rosewoods). Due to its density and hardness, even a large block of the cut wood will produce a clear musical tone if struck. I complemented the superb back and sides with a wonderful set of African Mahogany and proceeded to make her a Hauser. The texture of African Mahogany resembles the fur of a wild dog or Coyote. The beauty and shades of browns and beige that are projected from the wood grain is marvelous. The combination delivers a responsive warm sound that enhances the sound of the classical guitar making it a more expressive instrument than usual. The counterpoint is superb and the separation of voices is second to none. The sustain and projection are top notch and she is a pleasure to play. In both Barrios' "Una Limosna por el amor de Dios" and Bach's "Air on the G string", I am offered the possibility to stretch expressiveness to the next level. The guitar feels natural in my hands and it sings like the very best instruments. Every inch on this guitar speaks of the highest mastery in luthery. I chose a marvelous rosette that combines with the bindings and the exclusive wood marquetry to perfection. This guitars is the sum of a myriad little details that make her a masterpiece of Epic proportions.
