  1. Dang, would have pounced immediately! A Korina Special at that price is like a vacuum on the wallet.
  2. Says it was just re-listed Hamer Studio Custom GT P-90 2005 Goldtop https://reverb.com/item/26222194-hamer-studio-custom-gt-p-90-2005-goldtop?utm_source=android-app&utm_medium=share
  3. The top looks like spruce but thick. Could be chambered under the f holes
  4. Can't speak to what it does for tone but a gratuitous pic of my Boogie. I think it must sound better than vinyl covered plywood.
  5. And hard maple Common Name(s): Hard Maple, Sugar Maple, Rock Maple Scientific Name: Acer saccharum Distribution: Northeastern North America Tree Size: 80-115 ft (25-35 m) tall, 2-3 ft (.6-1.0 m) trunk diameter Average Dried Weight: 44 lbs/ft3 (705 kg/m3) Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .56, .71 Janka Hardness: 1,450 lbf (6,450 N) Modulus of Rupture: 15,800 lbf/in2 (109.0 MPa) Elastic Modulus: 1,830,000 lbf/in2 (12.62 GPa) Crushing Strength: 7,830 lbf/in2 (54.0 MPa) Shrinkage: Radial: 4.8%, Tangential: 9.9%, Volumetric: 14.7%, T/R Ratio: 2.1
  6. Some data, though it won’t directly translate to what our ears hear and hands feel. And natural variations. Similar properties so I would guess selection of trees/boards will make a large difference instrument to instrument. Limbs is a little less dense, a little less hard than Mahogany on average. Limba (Terminalia superba) Common Name(s): Limba, Black Limba, White Limba, Korina, Afara Scientific Name: Terminalia superba Distribution: Tropical western Africa Tree Size: 65-100 ft (20-30 m) tall, 5-7 ft (1.5-2.2 m) trunk diameter Average Dried Weight: 35 lbs/ft3 (555 kg/m3) Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .43, .56 Janka Hardness: 670 lbf (2,990 N) Modulus of Rupture: 12,510 lbf/in2 (86.2 MPa) Elastic Modulus: 1,520,000 lbf/in2 (10.49 GPa) Crushing Strength: 6,580 lbf/in2 (45.4 MPa) Shrinkage: Radial: 4.3%, Tangential: 6.3%, Volumetric: 10.8%, T/R Ratio: 1.5 Honduran Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) Common Name(s): Honduran Mahogany, Honduras Mahogany, American Mahogany, Genuine Mahogany, Big-Leaf Mahogany, Brazilian Mahogany Scientific Name: Swietenia macrophylla Distribution: From Southern Mexico to central South America; also commonly grown on plantations Tree Size: 150-200 ft (46-60 m) tall, 3-6 ft (1-2 m) trunk diameter Average Dried Weight: 37 lbs/ft3 (590 kg/m3) Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .52, .59 Janka Hardness: 900 lbf (4,020 N) Modulus of Rupture: 11,710 lbf/in2 (80.8 MPa) Elastic Modulus: 1,458,000 lbf/in2 (10.06 GPa) Crushing Strength: 6,760 lbf/in2 (46.6 MPa) Shrinkage: Radial: 2.9%, Tangential: 4.3%, Volumetric: 7.5%, T/R Ratio: 1.5
  7. Love the Marshall/Les Paul combination but it has been a long time since I’ve had it out, needs room to breathe. And then there is the barber chair. The little Boogie is good with any guitar, as is the MKIIA. And a Hamer!
  8. First band. I'm on the left with a Fender Mustang (red, no longer have it). Think this is 1972, 9th grade.
  9. Time to play the lottery. I'll also get Korina guitars if I win big
  10. Looks pretty nice. Hamer Studio Custom GT P-90 2005 Goldtop https://reverb.com/item/26222194-hamer-studio-custom-gt-p-90-2005-goldtop?utm_source=ios-app&utm_medium=share
  11. Same concern about damaging my “regular” Studio Custom, much less this very nice one. Buy two, play one.
  12. Glad to see I can reach the HFC now. Are there any lingering effects? I noticed my response to the Studio 30th Anny thread in For Sale is missing, so maybe some lost history for now. i was searching for my first thread response ever over the weekend, around 4/28/18 to 5/18/18, and it is gone. Can someone just delete a thread! Appreciate the people that keep this forum running.
  13. As far as saying what an impedance mis-match sounds like, hard to say. Some purposely do this for tone reasons, maybe from just trying it or it just happened. Here are practical considerations - Amps provide maximum power transfer when the speaker load is matched. Loudness. Tube amps may have an impedance selector, like Marshall. Usually means separate windings in the output transformer. if the speaker impedance is higher than the amp spec, less power goes to the speaker. Output section of amp should be safe against blowing out. If the speaker impedance is lower than the amp spec, you get more than rated power from the output section. May be a chance to blow amp, especially at high settings. Boogie amps (maybe some others) can tolerate a slight mismatch. For an 8 ohm rated amp, a 4 ohm speaker load can be tolerated. A 2 ohm load might be a problem. Some PA , solid state, amps tolerate a wide load range and develop max output power at low ohm load.
