Black Limba Body Blank

Black Limba/Korina electric guitar body blank.

Available in 2 and 3 piece blanks only.

Botanical name: Terminalia superba. This wood is grown in the tropical regions of western Africa and has a very interesting and appealing grain. It is held in very high regard by guitar builders. It was first introduced to the world as a tonewood in 1958 By Gibson. It was only briefly used then but it has never been forgotten. It has a very warm, balanced sound with excellent sustain. It produces a beautiful, rich tone similar to mahogany but with a touch more resonance. For a hardwood it is quite lightweight. Black Limba has dark and light stripes and/or lots of interesting swirls and some can have a mahogany-like appearance. Korina these days is mostly offered as an option in Custom Shop guitar builds.

Each blank is kiln dried, joined at the centerline and sanded to 120 grit. End grain has been sealed to prevent splitting. Limba does have some worm holes, but they can be filled with grainfiller

Grain patterns will vary.

Minimum Dimensions: 20"x14"x1.75"
