2010 H137 TV Yellow Korina?

Recommended Posts

I think mine is Korina, but it doesn't say so on the back of plate.  Sure looks like it though ~ the darker streaks and the grain.

Besides the 'if it doesn't say it it isn't'  ~  anyone here ever seen a Heritage Korina that was not identified as Korina?

No, it would have the designation written on the sticker on the control cavity cover. I suppose it’s possible, just unlikely.

Not sure if they would cover a korina body with tv yellow. That would not make sense to me....

I've never seen a Heritage label identifying the wood type/species.  That said, Korina (African Limba) is a great tone wood. 

Heritage has only used it in a few models over the years.

My 357 label says Korena. I'm beginning to think Marv pulled a fast one on me. :chok_mini:

Oh, and it's orange.

Foxe's in Falls Church VA had a bunch of Korina guitars made with P-90 pickups. This was a while ago. They couldn't give them away. Well, I should say that I presume they didn't sell because because they were listed above MSRP and they wouldn't budge on the price. I can't tell you how many Heritage guitars I've owned which never even had a label at all.
