Epiphone 1958 Korina Explorer Black 2008
Epiphone 1958 Korina Explorer, made in China 2008, black finish. It's pointy, but it's classy. The Explorer is one of those perpetually cool shapes that's always managed to stay left of field whilst maintaining a certainly level of practicality. It's a striking shape, but you can still sit down with it comfortably. The combo of a tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece, quality tuners and alnico humbuckers offer a tasty crunchy tone with a whole lot of streetsmart reliability. The neck is a slim and fairly shreddable shape and is blessed with a lovely streaky piece of rosewood for the board. The comically large case is a super handy addition as they fetch a small fortune sold separately. These don't currently exist in the local new market so make a pointy companion out of this one instead and thank us later.
