Personal Collection of Woods
Cocobolo Rosewood is arguably the most beautiful of all rosewoods. It is also the closest in density and sound to Brazilian Rosewood. Primarily from Mexico and Nicaragua with smaller quantities from Guatemala, there seems to be a nice supply in the US now. However I've been told by a few suppliers that China has been buying vast quantities in full logs as it is easier for the suppliers not to have to cut the wood into billets. Look for this wood to become more rare and MUCH more expensive. I have many straight grained (with and without sapwood) and many with very wild grains.
