My luthier friend is making me a guitar for free. Yes I agree im a lucky bastard, for once in my life. So this is the wood combination that I chose:

Korina Body

Hard Maple neck

Ebony Fretboard

Neck thru construcion & schaller trem

HOw do you this this guitar will sound?

Korina? How is that supposed to sound? I've never heard of it?



V's are commonly made of it, I hear its light with mahogany like qualities.

White or black korina?

I know nothing about korina but if it has mahogany qualities why not ? But the best combination I heard is the Ibanez RBM2NT (Reb Beach Model) , it has a mahogany body, awesome koa top, bolivian neck i think on pau ferro fretboard, or the Suhr one are gorgeous too, anything that Reb plays is a dream

So it's got a mahogany body with a koa top and a rosewood fretboard and rosewood neck? Reminds me of Suhr for sure

The black korina looks sexy. Clearcoat the natural.
