Epiphone Korina Explorer Electric Bass

Epiphone proudly presents the new Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer Bass, a modern remake of one of the most legendary instruments in rock featuring a solid Korina Body, Epiphone Bass XR and XT Humbuckers, and gold hardware.

Legendary Explorer

The Explorer profile, first released as an electric guitar in the late 50s, was one of the most radical designs of its time and today originals are some of the most expensive instruments on the vintage market. The first Explorer Bass was issued in the early 1980s but only stayed in production for three years but has since become a legend of its own among metal and hard rock players for its tremendous tone. Now, Epiphone introduces the legendary Explorer Bass to a new generation with an all Korina (also known as African Limba) body for a look and sound unlike any other instrument in the world!

Solid Korina Body

The Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer Bass is made from solid Korina, one of the great tone woods for electric instruments. Korina was first used for by Gibson in the late 50s for the first limited run of the Flying V and Explorer. Few were made but Korina quickly drew the admiration of luthiers and guitarists for its warm tone and strong resonant properties. The new Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer Bass is finished in Antique Natural to show off the fine and delicate grain. Korina wood is also lightweight so even though the Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer Bass may look old-school space age radical, it's easy to hold and comfortable to play. The profile of the black and white pickguard is reminiscent of the first generation of rare Explorers.

The neck has a classic "1960's" SlimTaper D-Profile and a 34" scale, perfect for any playing style. The Rosewood fingerboard has a 12 radius, traditional pearloid "Dot" inlays, a 1.61" nut, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Explorer headstock--a trademark of the best rock and metal guitars--has a mid-60s style "Epiphone" script logo and Epiphone solid nickel premium die-cast machine heads with a 17:1 ratio for fast and reliable tuning.

XR and XT Humbuckers

The Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer Bass is powered by an Epiphone Bass XR Humbucker in the neck position and a Epiphone Bass XT Humbucker in the bridge position. Both the XR and XT humbucker are carefully wound to reveal the full tonal range of the Korina body and are exceptionally powerful and detailed--the perfect pickup combination for one of the world's most desirable and nuanced tonewoods. Controls include individual volume controls for each pickup and a master tone, all with vintage-style Black "Top Hat" knobs.

Solid Epiphone Hardware

Epiphone hardware is guaranteed for the life. The Ltd. Ed. Korina Explorer Bass has a Fully-Adjustable Flush mount bridge and tailpiece combo, and an Epiphone all-metal non-rotating 1/4" jack. All hardware, including the Premium Die-cast machine heads, is gold (solid nickel), a perfect complement to the Antique Natural finish.
