Shit, I just ran a Rockman into a power amp or a big clean Twin....

I did the same - I ran my Rockman onto a Peavey Classic or Silverface Twin for most of the 80s.

I've still got my Rockman. Still works. A couple times a year I pull it out for a laugh.

I do that with my POD (the kidney).  The Spinal Puppets factory preset is just killer in headphones.  I always take that on my condo trips to the beach.  Bad for the ears and good for a headache though...

I also have the only Korina Chandler Telepathic that was featured in Guitar Player Magazine.  It's, basically, a Tele thin-line.  Very warm sounding guitar compared to Fenders of similar configuration.  Seymour hand wound the pickups for the prototypes (mine is one of three models featured in the magazine).

Damn, I vividly remember that magazine issue and that photo. I’m sure I still have the mag somewhere.  Cool guitar!

I'm lucky to have it.  My opportunity to purchase It was truly serendipitous.

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.

Don't fight it, it is only natural to covet thy neighbors Shishkov. 😀

As you should be. #0070 is amazing, #0090 is shaping up nicely and #0105 will be rearing its ugly mug in the months to come.

I like the slight change it brings from mahogany. I was inspired by two CO Hamers, each of which had a korina body and neck, with ebony board (one) Brazilian (the other). Add a softwood top (redwood) over a chambered body and the piezo option and I am in love with it. This guitar has really spoiled me. It can do just about anything.....More than I am capable of doing, of course. Tone is in the ear of the beholder, but I like the difference in the mids, with a touch of "air" from the chambering.....Add a bit of "crispness" from a slight "acoustic" edge, as desired.

I’d agree that Korina is pretty close to Mahogany, but there’s (at least to my lousy ears) a bit more midranginess to it.   Seems to be pretty similar, otherwise.   If given the choice, I’d stick with my Korina guitars overall.

african white mahogany is what Jol Danzig, spirit animal, used to call it. not sure how close a species or variantit is.
