Today they are undeniable classics and Epiphone offer them as replicas built true to the original. Explorer Back when it was first launched in 1958, the Explorer started off rather disappointingly. Just as with the Flying-V, this was of course not due to its sound or playability but rather down to its extraordinary design. However, these original models from 1958 are highly precious, sought after collectables worth tens of thousands of dollars these days. Epiphone offer replicas of the 1958 Korina Explorer in both ebony and korina natural. Features a glance:

Epiphone have been in the business for 125 years now. Epaminondas Stathopoulos is the founder and namesake of Epiphone. He has already obtained his first patent when he was only 24 years old. The history of Epiphone has also been shaped greatly by the brilliant guitarist Les Paul experimenting in the Epiphone factory to design the first solid body electric guitar in 1941. Today Epiphone stand for both innovative guitar design and for excellent yet affordable replicas of true guitar classics.
