    Product Description

    One-of-a-kind legend! Epiphone proudly presents the return of the historic Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer, one of rock’s most legendary instruments in a solid Korina Body with Alnico Classic PRO Humbuckers, and gold hardware.

    Legendary Explorer:
    The Explorer electric guitar was first released in a very limited run in the late 50s and was one of the most radical designs of its time. And today originals are some of the most expensive instruments on the vintage market. Embraced by classic rock and metal fans, the Explorer remains one of the most popular and coveted designs in Gibson and Epiphone’s long history. Now, Epiphone introduces the legendary Explorer to a new generation with an all Korina (also known as African Limba) body with modern hardware and superb vintage voiced Alnico Classic Humbuckers.

    Solid Korina Body:
    The Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer is made from solid Korina, one of the great tone woods for electric instruments. The profile of the black and white pickguard is also reminiscent of the first generation of rare Explorers. Korina was first used by Gibson in the late 50s for the first limited run of the Flying V and Explorer. Although few copies were made, Korina quickly drew the admiration of luthiers and guitarists for its warm tone and strong resonant properties. The new Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer is finished in Antique Natural to show off the guitar’s fine and delicate grain. Korina wood is also lightweight, easy to hold, and comfortable to play.

    The neck has a classic "1960's" SlimTaper D-Profile and a 24.75” scale, perfect for any style. The Rosewood fingerboard has a 12 radius, traditional pearloid "Dot" inlays, a 1-11/16” nut, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Explorer’s trademark headstock has a mid-60s style “Epiphone” script logo along with legendary Grover Mini-Rotomatic machine heads with a 14:1 ratio for fast and reliable tuning.

    Alnico Classic Humbuckers:
    The Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer is powered by an Alnico Classic humbucker in the neck position and an overwound, slightly hotter Alnico Classic Plus humbucker in the bridge position. Similar in tone to the original “PAF-style” humbuckers of the original Explorers, Alnico Classics use Alnico-V magnets for a higher output with enhanced mids and highs. Alnico Classic humbuckers are carefully wound to reveal the full tonal range of the Korina body for exceptional power and detail. Controls include individual volume controls for each pickup and a master tone, all with vintage-style Black “Top Hat” knobs.

    Solid Epiphone Hardware:
    Epiphone hardware is guaranteed for the life and the Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer features a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece for exceptional intonation along with an Epiphone all-metal non-rotating 1/4” jack. All hardware, including the Grover machine heads, is gold, a perfect complement to the Antique Natural finish.

    Lifetime Warranty:
    The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson’s world famous 24/7/365 expert Customer Service.

    Well worth the money
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I did a review for the 58 V and it was not as good as I hoped. We will see if it gets posted. This one on the other hand was great out of the box after a minor setup. I did replace the bridge pickup because it just wasn't enough for me. Lots of black residue on your fingers is about the only issue with this guitar and the V. I did move the guitar strap pins so they neck doesn't dive bomb when you let go of it. The V had the same issue and I forget to write that in the review. Still overall a great guitar for the price.

    Great guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is a great guitar. Feels like a Gibson, plays really well out of the box, and I could quickly get the tone I wanted out of it (sludge with a hint of brightness). Also set up different tones to experiment - sounds great. Generally I play tuned down super heavy trash, but this guitar will do well for other styles too. Really stoked, my neighbors are pretty sad though - at least the ones who don't enjoy thrash.

    Killer Rock Guitar!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Really a joy to play. You don't have to pick a point to anchor your hand to the body. The resting position of your arm is really well thought out. It sounds great, like my last Korina guitar (Epiphone V) that was stolen years ago. Get one before they are gone. I'm hoping to get the bass version too.

    Fantastic Guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is one of the better guitars in my large collection, it looks great and sounds like a beast unleashed on a slab of beef lol what I mean is the sound is fantastic its easy to palm mute and you can paddle an E chord for hours and held right next to my Marshall full stack you can get feedback for days. I waited a long time to get this guitar and it was worth every second of the wait. Buy yourself one today you won't regret it.

    Well worth the money
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Pros: aesthetically awesome with an equally awesome bright midrange tone both due to the Korina wood. Cons: Like any guitar fresh out of the box it needed to be professionally adjusted and setup to play to its full potential.

    Midrange Monster
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This a great guitar with killer yet elegant looks and great playability. The slim taper neck is very comfortable for my medium sized hands and the fretwork is quite good. The rosewood fretboard has some of the best figuring I have every seen in my 35+ years of playing. Real Grover tuners, by the way! The guitar has a huge lower midrange in its sound that is great for classic rock but may not suit super-scooped recto players. The sound varies quite a bit between the three pickup settings and all are very usable. This Explorer is very light for its size and surprisingly balances well with a strap. The finish is deep amber and really compliments the black plastic and gold-plated hardware. The only downside are the obvious top and bottom veneers for the body which sandwich several mismatched grain white limba body blanks (Korina wood). Overall, very satisfied.
