    Here you go, the first pic is currently with the pickups covered, the second was when I bought the guitar. It wasn't made by Gibson.

    Sanhozay,
    I hear Korina as a sort of mid-point between nice ash and mahogany. It's light (a bit over 7.5 pounds is what that Futura weighs) with a more upper midrange focus as opposed to the lower midrange focus of mahogany. It's got a crisp top and bottom, but as a whole sounds a little thinner than mahogany but fuller than ash. I hope that helps.

    Hamer and two replicas from days gone by. The Hamer spent most of it's time on the porch with those other two dogs.

    Killcrop,

    That's beautiful!

    What kind of Jr./Special is it? Hamer?

    Nice. I was surprised at how effective the V on stage was. It was really cutting through the mix nicely. So the Hamer couldn't hang with the 2 custom builds? Not sure what you meant by the porch comment?
