This Heritage Series Korina Explorer comes in the rare, original Candy Apple Red finish.  The electronics are all original.  It currently has a TP-6 tailpiece on it, but the original stop bar is included in the case.  The case is also original.  It has an anodized gold pickguard on it, but it also includes a black pickguard which I don't believe is original, but is the original style.

It set up beautifully and the Tim Shaw pickups sound fantastic.  It plays smoothly up and down the neck with low action and no buzzing.  The frets are in very good condition and have plenty of life left in them.  The wood is nicely resonant, as expected from a good piece of korina.

The guitar shows finish checking, some string changing marks, and some chips on the corners, as shown.  This is all natural play wear, not a relic job.


Original hard shell case included.


Free worldwide shipping on this one.
