    I don't know if it's my love for Roscoes, or if it's the wood. I think it's the wood. This is the most gorgeous bass that I've ever seen. If only I had some extra cash... :bawl: .

    Anyone have a bass with some chocobolo that they'd like to share some pics of? I must see more.

    My 04 Alembic Dragon's Wing. It just doesn't get any better than this.
     
  14. Thanks. Looks much better in person of course.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure they're in the pic advertising the pickups on the Benavente website: http://www.benaventeguitars.com/accessories.htm

    Cool :cool:

    IMO, the cocobolo Alembic uses is too dark, too brown. The stuff with the lighter, more reddish-grain like that Roscoe definitely show off the beauty of cocobolo better.

    You'd have to see it in person to truly appreciate it. I wasn't a coco bolo nut until I got the wing. Big, huge difference in tone and looks.
