I just received some beautiful straight-grained cocobolo for a neck I'm going to construct. Mind you, this is my first ever neck, and on top of that I have almost zero woodworking experience. (yes, I am completely crazy!) So my question is, is there a cheap hardwood which compares to the density and grain of cocobolo to practice with? I'd like to do at least one "practice" neck before I cut into this beautiful, expensive piece of wood. Thanks, all.
