Recreation of the vintage 1958 Explorer electric guitar.

The Epiphone 1958 Korina Explorer electric guitar authentically recreates one of the most famous and valuable vintage guitars ever made. Made in partnership with Gibson, it brings the legendary 1958 Explorer design to guitarists at an accessible price point. The Epiphone Explorer features a resonant korina body and neck that produce a warm, vintage tone. It's equipped with Burstbucker 2 and Burstbucker 3 humbucker pickups, allowing you to dial in anything from glassy cleans to saturated overdrive. Individual volume and tone controls provide exceptional tonal flexibility. With its fast-playing neck and iconic body shape, the Epiphone 1958 Korina Explorer gives you vintage vibe and sound without breaking the bank.

Korina Body And Neck Provide Resonant, Vintage Tone

Just like the ultra-rare 1958 Gibson originals, the Epiphone Explorer is constructed with a korina body and neck. The korina wood has a unique resonance that emphasizes warm mids and tight low end. This gives the 1958 Korina Explorer a lush, vintage tone reminiscent of the late '50s. The slim neck has a rounded 1958 Explorer profile that feels fast and comfortable. Combined with the resonant korina, it makes playing effortless. The Epiphone's smaller body shape makes the Explorer comfortable for guitarists of all sizes.

Burstbucker Pickups Deliver Classic Humbucker Sound

The Explorer is equipped with a Burstbucker 2 neck pickup and Burstbucker 3 bridge pickup. These pickups provide a range of classic humbucker tones, from singing leads to thick rhythm. The Burstbucker 2 has an articulate midrange and mellow highs that are great for blues and rock. The Burstbucker 3 has more midrange growl and tighter lows, adding bite to your sound. The individual volume controls let you blend the pickups to craft your tone. And the master tone knob gives you overall EQ shaping. With the 3-way toggle switch, you can go from glassy cleans to saturated overdrive.

Individual Volume And Tone Controls Allow Tonal Flexibility

The 1958 Korina Explorer gives you exceptional tonal control thanks to its individual pickup volume controls and master tone control. The volume knobs let you blend the Burstbucker 2 and 3 pickups. Keep one low for cleans or crank both for overdriven tones. The master tone knob shapes the overall EQ. Roll it back to tame overly bright amps or boost treble for more cut. And the 3-way toggle switch selects either pickup or both together. This array of controls provides the tonal flexibility to craft your perfect sound.

Hard Shell Case Protects The Guitar During Transport

Epiphone includes a hardshell case to protect your new 1958 Korina Explorer. The rigid sides and plush interior keep your guitar safe from dings and scratches. The locking latches and padded handle make transport secure and comfortable.
