Super looking.

I bought a hollow korina with a walnut top. I hope my korina comes out that nice.

What exactly did you use to get that look?

Wow...

What did I use? Do you mean the finish? If so, its just a clear gloss on Korina. Nothing else. Unfinished rosewood neck. The pickups are rusty just from being from the mid 1950's.

Did that help?    :toothy11:

Yeah, that helps.

Did you use a filler, it looks smooth.

I was thinking about using a dark grain filler to bring out the grain, but yours looks great.

Korina does need grain filler... I usually prefer transparent fillers, but some guys had good results with black... just have a search on the forum and you'll have plent of ideas  :icon_thumright:

As far as I know, its just a standard clear gloss that was done by Warmoth. Perhaps they use filler, I don't know.

Oh yeah, I'm also taking out the wilkinson and putting in a 6 point Callaham bridge!!

I fed up with the wilkinson and 2-pivots in general.

Hey,

I'm changing the pickups to 2 Harmonic Design Z-90 Pickups (humbucker sized, cream), just to change things up and try other stuff out. I will need a new pickguard I trying to decide between using the same color I have now (white pearl w/ black stripe) or using solid black gloss (no stripe).....any opinions? The knobs I use will be dictated by the pickguard....

:icon_scratch:

id say the second (goes great with the natural)

Didn't catch the part about the new pups being cream. Black is the way to go with the cream pups.
