    One I used to own. 2010 Korina McSoapy. Very light and very spanky sounding. Like a beefy Telecaster.

    PRS Private Stock 594 w/ maple top, black limba body and korina neck
    Thorn 175 w/ black limba body and korina neck

    The very first guitar I ever played that was made from black limba and korina was Ron’s, and I knew I just had to have one. Been a fan ever since!

    In '11 I took an '08 PRS McCarty Korina off the rack at Sam Ash for giggles. I never had owned PRS or Korina and they weren't on my radar. My then fiance (now wife) saw how much I enjoyed playing it and encouraged me to get it. I sold 2 Heritage guitars and went back and bought it.
    My old TGP thread from the time of purchase: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/would-you-do-it-prs-content.897795/

    I still own & play it.

    You never told me your address and at what time you are not home so I can do my Tom Cruise's Mission impossible on that green thing and fly to the other side of the world running away from you .:D:p

    Ha! The River Bottom, CA. Thanks for the compliment. You're first if I ever decide to sell (not likely).

    I don't know -- I'd say that's the least stealthy guitar I've ever seen!!

    It looks good. But do you all like how it sounds?

    My only Korina guitar, a G&L ASAT. I believe 100 were made, and this is at least the second in this thread. It could use some shielding, though. The P90s are a bit noisy.

    Man that looks great.
    I don't think I've ever owned any korinas all this time.
    Would the characteristics be like mahogany? Looks a bit like it grainwise.
