Description

Cocobolo is a Rosewood revered for its warm Brazilian like tone and clarity. It is also very beautiful with deep red hues and distinct black grain lines. Charlie Hoffman makes the most of Cocobolo on this guitar employing it for the body, fingerboard, headstock and rosette. This along with the Bearclaw top creates a natural beauty that is simply inspiring, you need only scroll down to see what I mean

Charlie Hoffman has been building and repairing since the 1970s, during this time he has built a reputation as one of the true master builders. The pictures tell of how beautiful this guitar is, but let me tell you the tone is equally stunning.
 
This is a gorgeous guitar to behold - from the Cocobolo back, sides, headplate and fingerboard, to the Bearclaw Sitka top and koa trim. The sound is clear and rich with great balance.
