Black versus White Limba

Q: I’ve been trying to figure out what the difference would be in a guitar made from black limba versus one made from white limba versus one made from regular ol’ limba or korina. Can you help?

A: There is only one limba tree or wood: Terminalia superba of the family Combretaceae. The different names refer to cosmetic differences in the coloring and any black streaking/figuring in the wood.
