Limba is a light yellowish to golden brown, sometimes with grey to nearly black streaks and veins. These streaks are what separates black limba from white. Limba can be worked with machine or hand tools, takes an excellent finish and glues well. Commonly used for furniture, light construction and specialty items such as guitars. In fact, Gibson introduced the use of limba back in the 1950’s. Use our black limba scales for your next project for great results.
