CB "Model J" in Premium-Grade Cocobolo

The CB "Model J" guitar is Chris' interpretation of the classic "round-shouldered" Dreadnought guitar of the 1930s. The deep, rich bass offered by the larger body cavity of the round-shouldered Dreadnought makes for a very well-balanced sound, with clear, strong treble and rich overtones.

Cocobolo is a true Rosewood that grows along the Pacific seaboard from Central America to southern Mexico. Cocobolo is probably closer in tone, color and figure to the finest-grade Brazilian Rosewood used on the classic guitars of yesteryear than any tone wood available today, and for far less money than the inferior-quality Brazilian currently available. Cocobolo is harder, heavier and more dense than other Rosewoods, and is thus a better sound reflector, absorbing less sound than the softer Rosewoods. Cocobolo offers everything Brazilian Rosewood offers, and more: increased power, increased sustain, increased volume, and beauty of color and figure not available in Brazilian Rosewood for years. For the player seeking to capture the sound and beauty of the finest Brazilian Rosewood from the '40s and '50s, with the added benefits of greater power and sweeter tone, Cocobolo is hard to beat.

The CB "Model J" in Cocobolo is the perfect marriage of beauty, sweetness of tone, and bone-crushing power.
