Unfinished 1 Piece White Limba/Korina Stratocaster Body S/S/S Pickup Routes Very Light 3 Pounds 6.2 Ounces!

Note: The body pictured is the one you will receive! 1 Piece White Limba/Korina bodies are rare. The construction on this one is perfect. It has those deep contours found in early 60's Strat bodies.

All wiring holes have been drilled. No holes were drilled for a tremolo leaving it up to you to decide if you want to install a vintage or 2 point when you receive the body.

This body will make a great custom Strat. If you need a neck or other parts to complete your project let me know.

This body is very light and weighs in at 3 Pounds 6.1 Ounces!

Korina (Black & White Limba)

The “true” name for korina is limba. Korina comes from Africa and is roughly similar to ash in weight. It has this weird waxy feel to it as well, but you won’t be able to tell with a gloss or satin finish on it!

I should mention that white and black korina come from the same tree, and have the same tonal qualities. The only difference between white and black korina is that white korina comes from the sap of the tree, while black korina is the heart.

Korina/Limba is has a very warm tone to it; think mahogany but with a clearer mid range! This wood is popular for semi hollows, often used in exotic boutique metal-oriented guitars and first came to popularity on some classic Gibson Explorers. Limba/Korina is known as "The Mother Of All Tone Woods"!  The Limba is a warm, resonant and balanced wood. It also produces great clarity, definition and sustain. As an anecdote, some of the most popular guitars in history are made of this wood, a very hard and stable wood.
