    New Top-Brand Gear From An Authorized US Dealer

    You get top-brand gear, new from the factory, from an authorized US dealer. Our products are shipped from the vendor to our warehouse, and then from the warehouse to you. There is no detour through a retail store, where the boxes are opened, the products put on display, and then sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you are comparing new gear from authorized US dealers. 

    Special Opportunities: When It's Not New, We Tell You

    We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise to offer at special discounts. We also sometimes get returns in less than perfect condition. Sometimes we will offer these products to you - but we always identify it clearly as such using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, it's new from the factory.

    Important Guarantee: Your 100% Satisfaction

    Regardless of the condition described on our site, what you should remember is that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it (though exceptions apply for some products). Of course, if you know you will only be happy if a product is 100% cosmetically perfect, then you shouldn't order B-Stock or Blemished merchandise - it's just not a good gamble. And if you will only be happy if a product has never been touched by another human, well then the Resealed products aren't a good choice for you. But if you are looking for even more impressive values than our already-low prices, then these options will be very attractive when available.

    These are our best descriptions of the quality and condition of this merchandise. Because of the highly efficient, automated nature of our warehouse, and the high volume of products we stock and ship, there is no way for us to provide any additional detail on the condition of any individual item. Just remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

    Product Description


    Epiphone's Limited Edition "1958" Korina Moderne revives the phantom classic patented in 1958 but never put into production. Featuring a light Korina body with an Antique Natural finish, Epiphone Alnico Classic Humbuckers, and Wilkinson Vintage machine heads with Tulip Buttons. Available for a limited time only from select Authorized Epiphone Dealers.

    The Mystery of the Moderne
    - The Phantom Electric

    The original Moderne was intended to be the third guitar in a series of futuristic designs that included the Flying V and the Explorer that were intended to revive lagging sales. Though the Flying V and the Explorer were put into production in the late 50s in small quantities and eventually became classics, the Moderne was never officially released and only a handful of prototypes ever made it out of the Epiphone and Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. For decades, the mere existence of a true Moderne prototype has been a kind of "Holy Grail" for guitar collectors. Now Epiphone makes the world's most rare and exotic electric guitar available to everyone at a great price with modern hardware, superb pickups, and Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

    Korina Tonewood

    The Ltd. Ed. "1958" Moderne body is made from Korina (African Limba) wood which is renowned for its lightweight and excellent tonal properties. Gibson first used Korina wood in the late 50s for the first limited run of the Flying V and the Explorer and the original Moderne is rumored to have also been made from Korina. As time went on and guitar production accelerated during the 1960s and 70s, luthiers and guitarists rediscovered Korina as an alternative to Mahogany, Alder, and other woods typically found in solidbody guitars. The Moderne features a Korina neck with a "1960's" SlimTaper D-Profile with a 24.75" scale length, a Pau Ferro fretboard with pearloid "Dot" inlays, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Moderne headstock is modeled after late 50s Flying-Vs with a raised "Epiphone" logo.

    Epiphone Alnico Classic Humbuckers

    The new Korina Moderne is powered by an Epiphone Alnico Classic Humbucker in the neck position and a slightly "hotter" Epiphone Alnico Classic Plus Humbucker in the lead or bridge position. Epiphone's Alnico Classic pickups feature Alnico 5 magnets which have a slightly higher output than typical humbuckers and offer enhanced mids and highs. Controls include an Epiphone all-metal 3-way Pickup Selector along with Volume controls for the Bridge and Neck pickups and a Master Tone Control, each with Black "Top Hat" knobs.

    Moderne Hardware

    The Ltd. Ed. "1958" Korina Moderne comes with rock solid Epiphone hardware including a gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, an Epiphone All-metal 1/4" output jack, and Wilkinson Vintage machine heads with vintage style Tulip Buttons. An optional hard case is also available.

    Limited Lifetime Warranty

    The Ltd. Ed. "1958" Korina Moderne comes with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson's world famous 365/24/7 Customer Service. The Ltd. Ed. "1958" Korina Moderne will be available for a limited time only.

    Features:


    - Legendary "Moderne" design, modeled after the rare original prototype
    - Korina (African Limba) body with Antique Natural Finish Epiphone Alnico Classic Humbuckers
    - Wilkinson Vintage machine heads
