So I am going to start a new build and need some advice on what wood to use. I want to make a Gibson style flying V. Now I did some reading and found the originals were made from Korina or Mahogany. I have never even seen Korina wood but I built one Tele from Mahogany and it is really heavy. It would be great if a guy could just run down to his local guitar shop and pick up a vintage V and compare weights. Unfortunately these guitars are rare and very expensive so that is not an option. So what I really want to know is if anyone here has a Gibson flying V, how heavy is it and what is yours made from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
