    Korina 408

    Looks like Sweetwater has a limited run of Korina 408s!

    "Created just for Guitar Month at Sweetwater, we've teamed up with PRS to build the
    Korina 408. This special 408 features a contoured Korina body and pattern-profile neck, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, V12 finish, and custom-wound 408 pickups."

    Yes...yes...yes... This is what I want.
    The 408 is going to be my next purchase anyway and a Korina 408 would go so so well my Korina Twins (KL380 & McCarty).
    Please tell me they ship to the UK.

    Just seen then on Sweetwater's web site. One of the photos shows the back of the headstock which says "Custom built for USA only"
    What's all that about?

    Probably because of the Brazilian Rosewood fretboard.

    Looking very sweet.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    I think all 408 pickups are listed as custom wound.

    Well, I barely saw this thread last night. As I continue my torrid affair with Korina, my wallet is a little lighter this morning.

    Should be here tomorrow.....

    Any guitar PRS builds with Brazilian Rosewood is marked "For USA Only". It cannot be exported to Europe.
