Cocobolo is very beautiful tonewood for neck or fretboard. But I heard that Cocobolo is toxic that may cause skin irritation and the Cocobolo dust can harm the lung. What is your suggestion?
Only the dust while building with the wood can provoke allergies in some people, not unlike pau ferro.Thanks very much for all your informative comments. I suppose I would adviod the Cocobola fretboard option for custom built guitar although she is very beautiful. I worry about that the health will be harmed after years of playing Cocobola fretboard. I decide BRW or Snakewood would be the way to go. Thanks again for your suggestions!
