Neck isn't even polished yet. Has a slight blemish on the front. But the back is lovely with the blisters and subtle flame.

Look how porous the Korina is. This is shellac sealer, grain filler x 1, nitro sealer. I grain filled again after that. Still gonna have to beat back the colour coats to get level.

Korina is a nightmare, also so bloody soft. I don't care about its mythical properties, never using it again!

yep, you're a brave man putting a trem in it ;)

To be fair mine was a two pointer - so not much wood left after the posts went in. First stringing and the posts had broken the wood behind. Lesson learned :)

I had an epiphone V that had a metal plate that went were the 2 posts fit to the body, I think thats the solution.

If Korina is so bad how come Reverend only use Korina? Genuinely interested, not stirring. And of course Gibson and others use it occasionally. I would have thought by the comments that it would be too difficult to use for a mass production line situation.
