Bocote Guitar Wood Introduction

From the first time I saw Bocote wood I was struck by it’s rich beauty. I find the colours both warm and brilliant. The contrast of the golden amber and the darker grain lines was beautifully striking. Though I wanted to build a guitar from it I could not readily find Bocote pieces that were wide enough to work. This all changed a couple of years ago when I was lucky enough to find a small quantity of Bocote in the sizes necessary to build guitars.
