Re: What wood would you use?

Korina and mahogany are effectively the same wood tonally. its just korina looks a bit nicer and has moreof a heritage thing going on because of the korina gibsons. (That were made from korina because it was actually cheaper at the time)

That said, I love mahogany guitars immensely and always have. I love the darkness of the wood and the sustain.
