Look what I got!

I traded my semi useless gear and 2 copy guitars for a NICE reissue '58 Korina V pre-modded by previous owner with a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and dunlop straplocks, I think the tuners were changed, but im not sure, came with a epi V molded case too, the guitar was made in 98 and just has 2 finish cracks, but man does it play like butter, already im selling (or direct trading for a white fixed bridged Ibanez) my Dean Cadillac X (which I modded alot) and my other custom V (which was heavily modded my me too)

Here are some pics (note, this is how I got the guitar, I have done some mods to it already and I am waiting to buy a gold pickguard for it so I can take new pics)

Re: Look what I got!

Nice! Korina is a great sounding wood, I'm sure you'll love it. Is that a Gibson or an Epiphone?

The case is marked Epiphone, so that'd be my guess.

Indeed though, Vs are pretty nifty, Korina has a nice grain too.

It is an Epi, (well, for now ! muahahaha...j.k)
The grain does look nice man, and with all gold parts, it just looks like a million buck

Re: Look what I got!

Nice! What exactly does Korina sound like compared to other woods?

To me, it sounds very tight, harmonics just scream, and cleans are very creamy, lol, plus the pickup combination, I actually prefer it over my EMG V guitar.
