This really amazing and rare Gibson Korina Explorer comes out of the collection of a local collector.   The tones and mojo bursting out of this guitar are the best I've ever experienced from a Gibson.    The market is flooded with the more common 58, but this rare piece is a much better playing and feeling instrument.   Normal signs of use for its age, but such fantastic condition.    Guitar's finish is naturally VOS and more realistic than newer reissues.   Guitar has had NO breaks, cracks or repairs.

Cosmetic Condition:   This guitar is in surprisingly amazing condition for it's age.  There is some light worming in the finish on the back, light lacquer wear around the strap buttons from guitar strap use.  Pick marks present on the pickguard.   There is finish checking on the neck and around the neck joint including the joint seam.   There are no dents, cracks, gouges or scratches into the wood on the guitar.   (PLEASE SEE ALL PHOTOS)


Tech Notes:  The setup is super low without buzz and really easy to play.  All electronics work and sound so amazing.   Guitar's weight is approx 8 Lbs 14oz.
