    Hi,

    Does anyone have a photo of a cherry or black cherry finish over a black korina body? I'm thinking about a Huber Dolphin and suspect that this may be a very nice option.

    Thanks!

    Not exactly Black Cherry, more of a faded "Chestnut", but you get the idea.

    Ohhh, snap! That may be my favorite finish on that wood I've ever seen.

    I had my co workers at Gadow make me one our Custom Singles in black limba. I shot it with a cool burnt orangish walnut toner but I have no pics of it in my hard drive:jo . I looks good though, Brooks even likes it.
