Carvin just announced adding black limba and white limba

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by gumbynotpokey, Jan 19, 2014.

  1. Wow. They have listened yet again. HOORAY.

    First the split pu, and now this.

    They are saying they will offer it as a top wood, a body wood, and as a body/neck option.


    Ok, sorry to be excited, but I had to come over here and plop down a thread on this. Carry on.

    Black limba can be seriously ugly...with those green and black stripes.

    White limba on the other hand, is up there with Koa as one of the most beautiful woods.

    I know, no one's ever satisfied. But darn it, I wish they'd offer wenge.
