Lightning Strikes Again With the Latest Collaboration Between Epiphone and the Gibson Custom Shop

Made in partnership with the Gibson™ Custom Shop, the 1958 Korina Explorer™ is Epiphone’s impressive recreation of one of the most famous and valuable vintage guitars ever made. It brings authentic 1958 Explorer details to guitarists everywhere at a breakthrough price. Like the ultra-rare original Gibson models from 1958, it features a solid Korina body and a Korina neck with a long neck tenon and a 1958 Explorer neck profile. It is also equipped with an Indian laurel fretboard and gold hardware. The electronics are also top-notch, with Gibson Burstbucker™ 2 and Burstbucker 3 pickups wired to individual volume controls and a master tone control with CTS® pots and a Mallory™ capacitor, along with a Switchcraft® 3-way pickup selector switch and 1/4” output jack. An Epiphone x Gibson Custom logo on the back of the headstock is also proudly displayed, and a hardshell case is also included.
