I noticed that EMG seem to have supplied their soundboxes in boxes made from mahogany wood.

http://www.gramophonemuseum.com/images/Machines/Soundboxes/EMG%20soundboxes/EMG%20Longbar/emg-longbar-soundbox.jpg


I wonder when these might have been supplied and how common they are ?

Also, if anyone has one I would really appreciate seeing a few photo's of it - external and internal.


Thanks very much.

Can’t say I’ve ever seen a mahogany EMG box, the one pictured there and indeed all the ones I’ve seen are a heavy weight cardboard covered in a leatherette of various colours
