After debuting the radically designed Korina Explorer model in the late 50s to minimal excitement, Gibson retired this unique body design until the mid 70s. These featured mahogany construction with a slightly different control layout and tuners but kept the futuristic body and headstock design. This 1976 model is a fantastic example of the 2nd generation explorer; light weight and with a fantastic playing mahogany neck, a pair of humbucking pickups and the original hardshell case. This guitar was professionally oversprayed at some point in its life and features replacement pickups making it an ideal choice for a player. Original Korina examples are some of the most coveted and pricey vintage guitars on the planet but the re-introduction in the 70s remain fantastic guitars for anyone wanting the distinct look and feel of these truly unique guitars.
