This wood goes by a number of names, and historically has been called Afara or Korina, in addition to its now-prevalent moniker Limba.

The most well known example of its use in guitars is when Gibson produced their now highly sought-after “Flying V”and “Explorer” guitars in 1958. Makers of table tennis blades choose limba, and in particular black limba for its flexibility and the idea that it enhances top spin play.
