I knew nothing about Limba Black, mine came more green than black - it is still nice in its own way and will have fun with it - it is hard buying exotic wood for the first time by a picture of one sample on a monitor. I am not sure if i would recommend Limba Black yet.

Ordered Tuesday evening, arrived at my door in Las Vegas Friday afternoon! Thought that was pretty quick and I was very happy, then I opened the box... Wow! What gorgeous wood! All boards were perfect! Black Limba needs to have the ribbons of Black running through it and all I can say is every board has a "white" area and a striped with black! They are beautiful!

Gorgeous piece of black limba, nice and straight. Should yeild 4 very attractive fretboards for future guitar projects I'll be working on.
Nicely planed, dense wood. Not much black.

I ordered black limba. I got black limba, but only about a 2 inch strip right along one of the edges. This section of wood could almost have been full white limba if the black section had been trimmed off. Not quite what I was expecting, I was expecting more black on it, especially because of the picture. I am using it for a guitar back, and after deciding I didn't want a skunk stripe down the middle, I now have a full white, black limba back. Don't care much about the lack of black/figure, i am more interested in tonal quality, but would have been more striking with black/figure on it. Came as one full board when delivered. I would still recommend woodworkers as a supply entity because they were very quick with shipping, and the packaging was great. I would also still recommend the black limba(korina) because it is easy to work with and very dense.
