    I need to break down and get a better scale that’s not old school rotary. The store told me the Korina was 8 lb 2 oz and it shows 8 on my dial so I believe it. But I picked up the mahogany off eBay, weight unknown. It plops in at 8 on the dial. My guess is about 8 and 1/4 lb.


    The Mahogany is a 2018 FSR Offset Telecaster. And the Korina one is a 2020 Limited Edition version. They’re both around 200 made so it’s not too limited to not enjoy actually playing. :)

    Natural lighting from half a curtain open. Phone color was left normal. The color is very close to the photos I selected. I’d say the last ones of the Korina by itself are a little more accurate. It came out a little yellower in the twin shot then in person (at least looking on my phone).

    It’s called an Offset Telecaster. They couldn’t use Telemaster because the name’s owned by someone else. I know there was a 2018 Meteora.

    And what I believe is the 2020 version.

    I find it can be hard keeping up with limited editions, pawn shop, and parallel universe ones. That 2018 Meteora was limited to 150 pieces if I remember right. And I believe it might’ve been MIJ.

    Nice, Congrats!:cool:

    The korina tele really caught my eye when they were announced.
    -korina build... CHECK
    -P90s... double CHECK
    Thinking I'll need to act on getting one sooner rather than later, haha.

    Fell in love with that combo ever since I was able to snag a Reverend "Asheton" sig Volcano.
    Wouldn't mind owning a Popa Chubby flying V, but not holding my breath for that.

    Thank you. :)

    As far as this Tele goes right now, they seem to be just flowing into stores now due to the Rona thing. So there’s plenty to choose from in regards to weight and wood grain. One seller alone just got 10 in on Reverb. Although maybe later in the year you might score a deal if the economy worsens.

    Maybe this will help with any GAS. ;)

    Thanks for the correction. Hard to keep track of all these limited guitars. The Meteora looks cool too. Hopefully there will be some great deals this fall for another chance if you still want one.

    You’re telling me... two guitars within a week here. But the bodies and everything just felt right to me on the first one so the GAS instensified.

    There are also a few cool Limited mahogany P90 versions with colored bodies made for the Japanese market too. eBay has better photos but here’s some off google.

    YELLOW TRANS / BLACK TRANS / CRIMSON RED TRANS / ARCTIC WHITE TRANS

    Also a cool blue version on eBay.
