    Thanks man. In the right light her finish is downright luminous. Fantastic feel, too.

    I love a korina. It adds a little extra snap to the voice yet korina necks have that lively, slightly elastic feel.
    Not at all like the hardness of maple.

    I bought a Moderne in' 82 and since then korina guitars have become kind of a thing for me. Have collected a handful over the years but the majority are slab bodies. Miss Scarlet is my only carved-top that's all korina.

    Adding one more that's only half red, just because it's kinda unusual. A Backlund Model 400 - my son calls it the Jetsons guitar.
    Big fan of John Backlund's designs; the mid-century futuristic look really strikes a chord with me. I bought his Model 100 also.
    Named this one Janet Air, after the unmarked red & white airliners that fly to Area 51.

    Wow, that is one of the coolest guitar shapes I have ever seen! Would have expected something a little more spacey on the headstock, but I am not going to fault it on that alone! Thanks for sharing, another rabbit hole for me to hop around in ;~))

    Gone but not forgotten. 2004 CU24 in black cherry. The only guitar I've really regretted selling.
