Thought we could share some Korina!
Those are incredible looking!
Here you go, the first pic is currently with the pickups covered, the second was when I bought the guitar. It wasn't made by Gibson.
Korina guys know their way around a camera! Nice pics!
What's korina bring to the table for tones, as a general rule?
I hear Korina as a sort of mid-point between nice ash and mahogany. It's light (a bit over 7.5 pounds is what that Futura weighs) with a more upper midrange focus as opposed to the lower midrange focus of mahogany. It's got a crisp top and bottom, but as a whole sounds a little thinner than mahogany but fuller than ash. I hope that helps.
I can't believe I don't have better pictures of this guitar
Korina Moderne on the right. The silverburst Flying V I sold to afford it on the left. I had possesion of both for about 2 days
Anybody know a guy with good '58 V templates?
Here are my last two korina V's
A Hiroshi Kidd replica that i swapped into here on the Emporium. Fabulous guitar.
And the 27th Vector from the first run in 1997....
Is my Warmoth Black Korina J-Bass allowed?
Korina........."Michael Stevens Classic"
A flamey korina guitar I built a couple years ago.
Hamer and two replicas from days gone by. The Hamer spent most of it's time on the porch with those other two dogs.
What kind of Jr./Special is it? Hamer?
Nice. I was surprised at how effective the V on stage was. It was really cutting through the mix nicely. So the Hamer couldn't hang with the 2 custom builds? Not sure what you meant by the porch comment?
