What Epiphone has to say:
A rare vintage classic returns with Korina body and Alnico Classic™ Humbuckers Epiphone proudly presents the return of the historic Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer, one of rock’s most legendary instruments in a solid Korina Body with Alnico Classic™ Humbuckers, and gold hardware.
Legendary Explorer The Explorer electric guitar was first released in a very limited run in the late 50s and was one of the most radical designs of its time.
And today originals are some of the most expensive instruments on the vintage market. Embraced by classic rock and metal fans, the Explorer remains one of the most popular and coveted designs in Gibson and Epiphone’s long history.
Now, Epiphone introduces the legendary Explorer to a new generation with an all Korina (also known as African Limba) body with modern hardware and superb vintage voiced Alnico Classic™ Humbuckers.
