    What's your #1 desert island guitar? (any model of Gibson)

    Nice to see the full shot! I think my next guitar has to be an ES. Don't think I'll find one that nice though haha

    What's your #1 desert island guitar? (any model of Gibson)

    That is a stunning guitar. I need a vintage Gibson acoustic in my life! My 55 Special feels just like that. I thought it was going to be a challenge to play being old with low vintage frets, but it's the easiest guitar I have to play on. I've had coincidences just like yours. I never know what...

    Holy smokes! That case is also wicked cool.

    New Gibson Korina Explorer & Flying V annnounced!

    It's not only Europe. Pretty sure they're doing them domestically too at some point. Just with Indian rosewood like they usually do. That's what someone at the Gibson Garage told me.

    P90 sound

    P90's were life changing for me. They can sound very aggressive or sweet. They have the beefiness of a humbucker but sound more musical to me. I like good PAF's a lot but I don't feel they have the same low end. The only downside obviously is the noise. Unless, you're playing super high gain, it...

    New Gibson Korina Explorer & Flying V annnounced!

    Thanks Cody! I did have an interesting thought/idea about some of these aged guitars. I think the next big thing to do would be to age the fretboards as well. If they're somehow able to get that oiled in/glassy thing that happens when a guitar has been played for decades, that would be quite...

    New Gibson Korina Explorer & Flying V annnounced!

    Here she is! I think black was definitely the way to go on this one. Here are my first thoughts right out the gate for anyone curious. - The aging is very very well done. It's probably the most realistic I've seen to date. The nitro has a really nice amber to it. The checking doesn't look...

    I can tell how they sound just by looking at them! You have some wicked guitars.

    What's your #1 desert island guitar? (any model of Gibson)

    :LOL: I think it would still sound killer through some island coconuts. Especially, the old vintage ones that have had time for the shells to settle.

    I must see pictures of these guitars!!

    What's your #1 desert island guitar? (any model of Gibson)

    I've somehow never managed to play an SG. But I love the sound of them. I was at Joe B's show last night and that was one of my favorite sounding guitars in the set. They kind of have a Flying V thing but not quite. And they definitely don't sound like Les Paul's either. I was watching a video...

    What's your #1 desert island guitar? (any model of Gibson)

    I would love an arch top myself. Still on the bucket list. And for the purposes of this discussion, I'm pretending electricity and an amp are easily accessible haha. (And thanks!)

    What's your #1 desert island guitar? (any model of Gibson)

    I'm curious what everyone's #1 in their collection is! What's the guitar you're bringing to a desert island where monetary value isn't a factor? There's not a guitar I'd trade on the planet for the 55' Special I picked up some time back. Even though it has a number of changes and a headstock...

    New Gibson Korina Explorer & Flying V annnounced!

    The most I ever spent on a guitar before this one was $5k, and that was astronomical for me! My thinking for these was that they are very very expensive but actually reasonable compared to the other Murphy Lab guitars. The Les Paul Standards sell around 10-12k and they're not in limited numbers...

    New Gibson Korina Explorer & Flying V annnounced!

    Thanks for uploading this. I'll plan on doing it myself. I just asked them to make sure it came with the right pick guard. From them: "You actually have to drill the screw holes to place it on the guitar. So if you were to remove it, the holes would still be on the top. Probably not the most...

    I just had a look at the same listing. I agree.. it looks exactly the same. I can't imagine they just didn't feel like doing it. They've been really helpful. I'll ask them to check with Gibson if they're actually different. Who knows.. maybe it came with the wrong one. It would definitely be...

    New Gibson Korina Explorer & Flying V annnounced!

    Oh, that's really interesting. You find out all kinds of cool facts on this forum. On the V's, for me at least, it just depends on the guitar. Some look better with white, and others black. This isn't the best photo but I'll post more when I receive it. It just has a dark overall quality to it.
