Just in from the folks at Taylor Guitars. This one is a really sweet sounding guitar. Black Limba might not be known to you by those words but other guitar builders have called it Korina for years. Korina is just a marketing term. In any case, this guitar (serial # 2203060087) will ship to you in the factory shipping box and the Hardshell case that it comes in. As always it will ship for free anywhere in the Continental US.
