The one they had was in pretty good shape, but I recognize that they are exactly on the window for my review. Only my dirty mitts could take down a little hundred.They were wrong about one thing, though, they made 12 of 50 V and Explorer, Gibson obliged to do. I am one of the last explorers handmade and stupidly about 10 years ago, when Les Paul and strategy are the rage sold. Dumb Dumb, still silent. The hand played Gibsons impressive. I had a friend that broke a neck on stage, repaired but it has never been the same.
Gibson does not sell very many of those early v, thats why the numbers are so low. they only became popular after Jimi Hendrix began playing them.At time, V ’58 was a disaster for Gibson.They almost could not give. Many ’58 V were actually destroyed by the stores, they could not sell them, but they made a clean display and many guitars hanging outside in the elements that store display. This is part of why they are so rare.If you found a ’58 V 50 … he was a great friend fly. Those go for 200-250K .. like a ’58 burst.
I can not even afford a reissue Gibson, I do with my Gibson Flying V Pro Guitar … but I’ll say, Korina as a tone wood Not hype. It may not be an Epiphone, but it is a heck of a Epi. Wood 2 piece body (a few years of production were 5 or 7 rooms with laminate … not this one). Hardware as Gibson (unlike most Epi) bridge ABR, etc. Grover I dropped a Duncan Alnico II in the bridge and it has become a fire-breathing dragon of a guitar. My Korina V is my favorite double-hum guitar. Even in the Gibson Les Paul, I used to have. Just a soul, toneful piece of wood that is a joy to play.
