Adansonia gregorii, commonly known as the boab, is a tree in the family Malvaceae. Endemic to Australia, boab occurs in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and east into the Northern Territory. So why the heck isn't it a valid word for some reason now? According to https://wordfinder.yourdictionary.com/scrabble-dictionary it is acceptable for Scrabble.

I first tried hallux (big toe) for the body part but it wasn't accepted. Also Macadamia has four 'A's, not three so maybe the clue should say "Has three or more A's", just like the 12th clue says 'Five or more letters"

Nov 11, 2019
Even though that was my first guess I didn't expect it to work because bonsai is not an actual tree, it is a tree or shrub that has been artificially dwarfed by a process. It's a thin line, but again, I was surprised to see it accepted. My next guess was going to be baobab.

For the tree, I tried bluegum, bottlebrush and boab with no luck. Perhaps a bottlebrush is a tall shrub rather than a tree but the other two are definitely trees.

What about "dobro" for the five-letter instrument? Technically, it's a brand name, but musicians use it as a generic term for a very particular kind of guitar that is regarded and played differently than a normal electric or acoustic. It's usually set across your lap, and you pluck it like a banjo while using a slide to control the notes. The average guitar player cannot play dobro. In a band, you'd say "Jim plays drums. Kerry plays guitar. Amy plays dobro." Not sure what the requirements of this quiz are, but as a seasoned musician, I'd say "dobro" definitely qualifies.
