Epiphone 1958 Korina Flying V Guitar

The Epiphone 1958 Korina Flying V uses sturdy korina wood to recreate the look and sound of the original Flying V. Similar to mahogany in tone, korina (aka limba) exhibits a beautiful natural grain and bold mid-range flavor. The same wood was used by Gibson to craft the original run of Flying Vs and Explorers, which have since become some of the most sought-after guitars ever to hit an auction block. Finished with classic gold hardware to compliment its vintage style, the 1958 Korina Flying V captures all the classic tone and swagger of the original in an electric guitar that just screams rock 'n roll.

Features:

- Korina (or limba) body with balanced, rich tone and beautiful natural grain
- Set mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard
- Dual humbuckers: alnico classic HB and alnico hot HB
- Gold hardware styled after original Flying V from 1958
- Epiphone limited lifetime warranty with 24/7/365 customer service

With a classic korina body and vintage, gold hardware, the Epiphone 1958 Korina Flying V recreates the sound and style of the inaugural Flying V.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (39 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "One of the New ones"
Overall: Most of the reviews on here were for the last release of this guitar and were several years old.... I received my 2016 edition today and here are some thoughts..... It's gorgeous!!!! I've always liked Epiphone archtops and hollow bodies, and this guitar is right there with the fit and finish.... everything is perfect, frets are properly dressed, no sharp edges... absolutely beautiful. Playable right out of the box, though I did lower the strings a bit. It was intune and perfect intonated right out of the box. Of course I'll put real strings on it soon, but the out of the box performance was impressive. The sound was ok.... the pickups were snappier than I thought.... but with those cleartone strings what could one expect? Playability was perfect... low action, zero buzz... I love the fat neck. This guitar is a kick in the pants to play. It needs straplocks. The leg-rest rubber piece is a welcome addition. I love this thing and would buy another.
Style of Music: Used to play metal... last 15 years more rock and blues.... fun happy stuff.

"One of my favorites"
Overall: I have a 58 Korina Epiphone V along with a les Paul studio, several Strats and tele's, to me the V has the warmest, smoothet sound of all my guitars, it feels so natural and easy to play, I love playing it, A friend of mine builds and restores guitars, the V came to him really beat up and in real bad shape, he spent several yrs working on it as a project, he did such a awesome job. He gave it a new life,
Style of Music: Rock, 80's hair bands, Christian rock, Blues, jazz

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
