Epiphone presents the new Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V, Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer, and Korina Explorer Bass, all featuring tone-rich and lightweight Korina bodies with the original historic profiles and powered by Epiphone's critically acclaimed Alnico Classic™ and XR™ and XT™ humbuckers.
Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V
The Flying-V electric guitar was first released in a very limited run in the late 1950s and today original Flying-Vs are some of the most expensive instruments on the vintage market. Now, Epiphone introduces the legendary Flying-V profile to a new generation featuring an all Korina (also known as African Limba) body with modern hardware and superb vintage voiced Alnico Classic™ Humbuckers.
The Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V is made from Korina and finished in Antique Natural. Featuring a "1960's" SlimTaper™ D-Profile neck with a 24.75" scale and the Flying V's trademark "V" headstock. The Korina Flying-V is powered by an Alnico Classic™ humbucker in the neck position and an overwound, slightly hotter Alnico Classic Plus™ in the bridge position. Alnico Classics are similar in tone to the "PAF-style" humbuckers found in rare vintage Flying Vs and Les Paul Standards, and are made with Alnico-V magnets for a higher output with enhanced mids and highs. Hardware includes a gold solid nickel
™ Tune-o-matic bridge and traditional Flying-V style String-Thru Body "V" metal plate along with an Epiphone all-metal non-rotating ¼" jack
Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer
The original line of Explorer electric guitars were also released in a limited run in the late 50s and like the Flying V, the Explorer was one of the more radical designs of its time. 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.
The new Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer is made from Korina and finished in Antique Natural. The neck has a classic "1960's" SlimTaper™ D-Profile, a 24.75" scale, and features the Explorer's trademark headstock with a 60s era "Epiphone" script logo. The Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer is powered by an Alnico Classic™ in the neck position and an overwound Alnico Classic Plus™ in the bridge position. Controls include individual volume controls for each pickup and a master tone, all with vintage-style Black "Top Hat" knobs. The Explorer's gold hardware includes legendary Grover® Mini-Rotomatic™ machine heads with a 14:1 ratio for fast and reliable tuning and a LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece.

Korina Explorer Bass which features Epiphone XR™ and XT™ humbuckers carefully wound to reveal the full tonal range of the Korina body.
