    Im looking for more than one site that decribes a tonewood so I can get more information/a different view. Specificly Im looking for info on mahogany (indian and honduran) and white and black limba (also called korina).

    Many thanks for that great link, David. I have mahogany, walnut and koa guitars and those are probably the most accurate descriptions I've read.
