  • Legendary ‘Moderne’ design, modeled after the rare original prototype
  • Korina (African Limba) body with Antique Natural Finish Epiphone Alnico Classic Humbuckers
  • Wilkinson Vintage machine heads
The Mystery of the Moderne - The Phantom Electric
The original Moderne was intended to be the third guitar in a series of futuristic designs that included the Flying V and the Explorer that were intended to revive lagging sales. Though the Flying V and the Explorer were put into production in the late 50s in small quantities and eventually became classics, the Moderne was never officially released and only a handful of prototypes ever made it out of the Epiphone and Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. For decades, the mere existence of a true Moderne prototype has been a kind of Holy Grail for guitar collectors. Now Epiphone makes the world’s most rare and exotic electric guitar available to everyone at a great price with modern hardware, superb pickups, and Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Korina Tonewood
The Ltd. Ed. ‘1958’ Moderne body is made from Korina (African Limba) wood which is renowned for its lightweight and excellent tonal properties. Gibson first used Korina wood in the late 50s for the first limited run of the Flying V and the Explorer and the original Moderne is rumored to have also been made from Korina. As time went on and guitar production accelerated during the 1960s and 70s, luthiers and guitarists rediscovered Korina as an alternative to Mahogany, Alder, and other woods typically found in solidbody guitars. The Moderne features a Korina neck with a ‘1960's’ SlimTaper D-Profile with a 24.75” scale length, a Pau Ferro fretboard with pearloid "Dot" inlays, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Moderne headstock is modeled after late 50s Flying-Vs with a raised "Epiphone" logo.

Epiphone Alnico Classic Humbuckers
The new Korina Moderne is powered by an Epiphone Alnico Classic Humbucker in the neck position and a slightly hotter Epiphone Alnico Classic Plus Humbucker in the lead or bridge position. Epiphone’s Alnico Classic pickups feature Alnico 5 magnets which have a slightly higher output than typical humbuckers and offer enhanced mids and highs. Controls include an Epiphone all-metal 3-way Pickup Selector along with Volume controls for the Bridge and Neck pickups and a Master Tone Control, each with Black Top Hat knobs.

Moderne Hardware
The Ltd. Ed. 1958 Korina Moderne comes with rock solid Epiphone hardware including a gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, an Epiphone All-metal 1/4" output jack, and Wilkinson Vintage machine heads with vintage style Tulip Buttons. An optional hard case is also available.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
The Ltd. Ed. “1958” Korina Moderne comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson’s world famous 365/24/7 Customer Service. The Ltd. Ed. “1958” Korina Moderne will be available for a limited time only. See your favorite Authorized Epiphone Dealer for details while supplies last.

Very nice woodwork, super light!
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
The woodwork is excellent. Nice frets, really nice finish. This guitar is very light! The pickups are thin and lifeless, though. I will be replacing with Gibson humbuckers. The hardware is average, but does look nice. If you want a great player, plan on changing out the pickups. I'll be adjusting the bridge and tuners, hopefully they'll be decent. If not, they will be replaced as well. This is a good value, but plan on replacing some hardware and electronics.

Light, resonant, tone machine
What is your opinion of this product?
I had been looking to buy a Joe Bonamassa Amos Flying V and upgrade the pickup with the SD Amos pickups. I'd read some less than stellar reviews about that guitar though and then I saw this. I've wanted a Moderne for a long, long time. But I didn't want a glue hog-boat anchor. I've had Epis in the past that were both. This guitar is a 3 piece body with front and back veneers. I can live with that. It's light, it's resonant, and it balances very well when strapped on. I was planning on replacing the hardware, pickups, and electronics, but it's not necessary. I've upgraded other recent Epihones with top of the line Faber bridge, tailpiece, studs, and inserts. It did nothing for the sustain, tone, or resonance. Epiphone has it figured out with their lock tone system. These pickups are really good as well. I may still replace them with Seymour Duncan Amos pickups, but I hate soldering, and these pickups sound so good. So I may never get around to it! The guitar came set up perfectly. Almost in tune as well! The strings are good quality and don't need immediate replacing either.

Great Guitar, worth the wait and the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Well made, Great finish and fit. The Pro Humbuckers sound great, will not change any electronics on this one - it is perfect as is. Neck feels good and plays good once I lowered the bridge to my typical set-up height. The fingerboard feels good and almost like ebony. Korina is light and top and back are veneers but look good.
