    Hey Mark,
    Here is a sound clip recorded by Robb of this instrument, definitely seems rosewood-esque to me...

    That's a really nice tune - I've been trying to learn it for the last week. Is it an original?

    The song I played on the Cocobolo F-5 is my version of Eight More Miles To Louisville. I've always loved the melody and thought it would show the tone of this particular instrument really well.
