Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary Korina Tribute
Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary Korina Tribute – New old stock unplayed, dead mint stored since new.
The 50th Anniversary Les Paul Korina Tribute is a rare and unique edition to a definitive electric guitar. The Gibson Korina guitar is made from a very lightweight and musical wood called korina wood, that has come to be known as a rare and legendary tonewood among manufacturers and players alike. Here’s your chance to own a special edition of a landmark Gibson Custom guitar that changed the sound of rock and blues.
The Korina Tribute electric guitar has an early ’50s neck profile that is rounded for comfort. The rosewood fingerboard has Gibson’s distinctive trapezoid inlays. The stop tailpiece is lightweight aluminum, and the tuners are vintage tulip style with push-in bushings, just like the original.
This anniversary edition Les Paul employs Burstbucker pickups, custom wound to emulate the original late ’50s Gibson humbuckers. CTS potentiometers are used for volume and tone, as well as the bumblebee capacitors, custom-made for Gibson to replicate the original electronics.
The Korina Tribute electric guitar receives a Custom Shop VOS finish: a thin layer of nitrocellulose lacquer applied, sanded, and buffed with the same methods that were used in 1958. Nitrocellulose lacquer continues to evaporate insuring the thinnest possible finish that will never dampen vibrations and supports complex musical waveforms. Prized for enhancing the musical tone, you’ll find a nitro finish on nearly all vintage and collectable American guitars.
