what u guys think of this thing?
i was just wondering what you guys were to think about this guitar and the price . it's not surprising to me that there's still people who don't know about these guitars ,because they are very rare ,and don't come up for sale very often . not very many famous musicians use them either . so i would say they are the guitar world's best kept secret ,if everyone knew what these guitars felt like ,played like ,then they would be more famous and more valuable . EVH rip loved his destroyer and these are just like that .
ok so this means u have played plenty of korina trio guitars ,that is a 1975 - 1977 ibanez destroyer ,or futura or rocket roll sr right?Ummm. The only reason those are worth big bucks now is because people do know about their historical significance.
Greco, Burny/Fernandes, and Gibson all made better Explorers back then (Gibson still does of course). Gibson's Moderne reissues came later, but they're better guitars.
Edward bought his Destroyer and assembled his Frankensteins because he was a broke starving guy in a bar band. He would have loved a real Explorer just as much (admittedly he might have replaced a Gibson's pickups).
I'm not putting them down. I'm definitely not saying they're bad guitars. Back in the day they were amazing guitars because they were near as good as a Gibson for half the price.
That was revolutionary. Ibanez shook up the American guitar industry. They're good guitars, maybe a little better than stock modern Epi's (but only because Super'70s were really good pickups).
That history, legacy, significance is why they're so high priced. Not because of build quality, tone, or playability.
You asked for our thoughts on that guitar and its pricing, and I gave you mine.
I haven't played any. Nor '70s Gibson Explorers or '80s Modernes.ok so this means u have played plenty of korina trio guitars ,that is a 1975 - 1977 ibanez destroyer ,or futura or rocket roll sr right?
