Epiphone Korina Flying V (1958)


They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if that is true then the Epiphone Korina Flying V has been flattered more than any other guitar out there.  Many brands have tried to copy the design and feel of the Flying V, but none of them can capture the feel, sound and look that has made the Flying V a classic from the day it was introduced in 1958.

This is a guitar that was made to be played long and hard.  Weighing in at a little over 7 pounds, you can play it all night without needing a chiropracter the next day.  The dual Alnico Humbuckers put out that classic rock sound, and the V design lets you get high on the neck so those rocking solos are easy to play.  The Alpine White finish and gold hardware make this guitar real eye candy.

This guitar was sent to the refurbisher for a heel crack that occured during shipping.  This is not an uncommon occurance in set-neck guitars.  It has been expertly repaired by factory trained luthiers and the neck is as good as new.  However, since this is a white guitar you can see the repair, if the guitar was black it would be invisible.  The good thing is you will be the only one to know it is there because it is on the back.  I have included a picture so that you can see for yourself.  This V has passed all 5 quality assurance checks at the refurbisher, which many of the guitars at you local music store could not pass.  The difference here is you get a great price!

A word about me and the instruments I sell

I specialize in manufacturer refurbished guitars and basses because I believe they are a tremendous value.  These instruments have actually passed more quality tests than those that go straight from the manufacturer to a music store.  These instruments do not have major flaws, they have had a minor issue such as a slight finish blemish or perhaps an electrical issue such as a loose solder joint.  I buy my guitars and basses from the largest, and in my opinion the best, refurbishing center in the country located near Nashville.  They are staffed with factory trained luthiers who take great pride in the products they put up for sale.  Each instrument must pass 5 tests before it is released for sale.  Some of the models are discontinued and have no issues at all.  Each instrument is stamped used and issued a new serial number.  This is to prevent unethical retailers from selling these instruments as new rather than refurbished.  I live close enough to Nashville that I travel to the factory and pick out my guitars myself.  I play each one prior to listing it for sale.  You can be assured if I would not be proud to give it as a gift, I will not take it. 

The pictures in my listings are ALWAYS of the actual instrument that you are bidding on, I never use stock photos for a refurbished instrument.  If I know why the instrument was sent for refurbishing I will put it in the listing, however many of them are rated NVR, which means no visible repair.  Please email me with any questions you have, you will find that I give very detailed answers.  I am a musician first, and that drives my choice of instruments to sell and the detail that I give in answering any questions.

Thanks for looking!

I require payment within 3 days. I prefer PayPal.   If you have no feedback rating, contact me first before bidding, this is necessary because many times folks with no feedback buy and then do not pay.

I pride myself on shipping the day the auction ends or the next business day at the latest. Shipping is generally through UPS or USPS ground.  Expedited shipping is available at extra cost.  Contact me directly for an expedited shipping quote. Quoted shipping is for the lower US only, for shipping to Alaska, Hawaii and international email me for rates.

Unless otherwise stated, we accept returns within 3 days of delivery.  Email first for return authorization.  Buyer pays return shipping.  All items must be in the same condition as when they were sold, and returned in the original packing.

I have recently moved my business online, but I personally have many years of experience in the business. All of my manufacturer refurbished guitars come from the country's largest, and in my opinion best, refurbishing company. I travel to Nashville to personally choose the guitars that I sell. You will not be able to tell any refurbished guitar that you buy from me from a new one except for the used stamp that is required on these guitars. This is required even though the guitar has never been sold. This is to keep dishonest retailers from selling these guitars as new with full warranty. Although a refurbished instrument does not carry the manufacturer warranty, if you are dissatisfied when you get your instrument you may return it to me for a full refund. I have never had a customer return a refurbished guitar to me, and I am sure you will not be the first.
