    Hello,

    This afternoon I played a 1993 SG Standard Ltd Edition, this guitar is fantastic it sounds very hot, many good vibrations :dude:

    My problem is the price ... Only 500 SG were build. Stamped price is 3500 €uros ...

    It's lovely. But yeah. That price is stupid. Korina is actually cheap. For that money I'd have an SG hand made.

    Actually it is forbiden to work the African Korina. Epiphone don' t use Korina, only mahogany .

    They tintMahogany to obtain that color and they say "Korina".

    Is the 2018 SG Special build with korina ? No

    It's not forbidden to use Korina as far as I know!
    Epiphone may tint mahogany, or use veneer as on the V, but that's because they're cheap ;)

    Korina is certainly not forbidden in the slightest. Not even close.

    I have had many blanks of Korina shipped around the world to me from many locations for my own builds......I'd say I have 15 different guitars with korina so far and another 3 on the way by the time the last 3 Black Korina neck blanks are built up.
