Dust N' Bones Posted October 27, 2005 Report Share Posted October 27, 2005 Now I know cocobolo is a difficult wood to finish. But unfourtunatly that's all I know. Because that seems to be all anyone ever says about cocobolo. So, how does one go about solving this delema? I'm thinking of going with a high gloss polyester finish as seen on the alembic Tribute. But what I'd really like is a translucent emerald green stain like This bad boy. But I hate to cover up such a beautiful wood as cocobolo with an artificial color that probablly won't even show up the right color because of the wood's natural redish color. And it might be too difficult. I've never seen a cocobolo guitar with anything but a clear gloss finish so maybe it's just impossible. Really, the finish is what I'm most worried about with building a guitar. Oh, and yeah, I used the search feature. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
