Black Limba, Terminalia superba
For decades Limba (also known in guitarmaking circles as Korina) has been a prized wood for electric guitars, but in recent years many acoustic builders have come to love it as well. This west African hardwood is very similar tonally to Honduran Mahogany. It has a fast, dry attack that is big, bold and confident, but without the lush overtones found in many rosewoods.

This is a perfect wood for modern fingerstyle, bluegrass, or any style music where clear note separation is required.

Black Limba's colors range from honey gold with distinct streaks of grey, brown and black with lots of dark, interlocking grain lines. The wood bends very easily, machines like a dream, and has very small pores that you may, or may not, choose to fill before finishing.
