    Yeah, here's the back of mine, in case I'm helping to sway people over to the dark side.

    Bennett Moderne.
    Indian rosewood fretboard, Gaboon Ebony headstock overlay, neck profile is a typical Gibson 1960 LP style carve, Seymour Duncan signature "Slash" alnico pro II pickups, nitro amber finish, pearl dots,
    Dual action truss rod, bone nut.
    I love it! Bought it directly from Bruce Bennett. My first Korina guitar.

    This is my number 1. Limba body & neck with rosewood board + SS frets, 2-Tek bridge. This is when it’s quite new, now it has lost the shine after lots of use but such a great guitar still.

    Who has one of those '70s or 80s Korina Les Pauls (not Gibson) with the Flying V style headstock?
