Merrill C-28 Cocobolo (2010)


The Merrill C-28 Cocobolo is undoubtedly the most sought-after dreadnought in our shop these days; and this is an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a used one. Jim Merrill's Cocobolo guitars compare very favorably to his Brazilians--the voice is a bit drier, with less overtones, but the woody thump is all there. The bass in this guitar will nearly knock you off a stool. The mids are thick and full, and the trebles have a round, broken-in quality with tons of ringing sustain all the way up the fretboard. This guitar is in excellent condition--there are several very slight scratches on the back, and nearly invisible signs of pick wear on the top (all of these are very hard to see with the naked eye). It has a very comfortable, low-profile neck and is perfectly set up for flatpicking. Priced with a Cedar Creek hard case.
