Re: 1960 Gibson Korina Explorer " Kandye Kane " Guitars West Owned on ebay

Is there a guitar that's been more vetted than this one?

Didn't the guitar "fail" when thoroughly examined against multiple known straight examples in Long Island?

Other than Gary and Clive, is there anybody who's examined it and believes it to be a straight guitar?


*let's exclude sloppy paperwork from the Pope, as he appears to be in the "fail" camp from what Gary's posted.

Mate,
Any others? Yes, about at least a half a dozen to your one... Who in hell failed it in Long Island against many others. Not this guitar... Not the one I have... Who was the teacher the gave it an "F"... BH

Gary,

I don't know if you re-read your posts before you hit "Post Reply," but it doesn't serve your cause very well to be threatening everyone that disagrees with you.

Just say in'....:jim

I don't think you are getting it. Last warning. If you insult or name call again, you will get a vacation.

I sure hope this discussion doesn't get deleted. And I'm hoping for a happy ending as well--that the Explorer is 'The 'Real Deal'!

Wow,
Some of my post, my post have been whacked...!!! I cannot believe it. They're telling me "The Spur" was threatened by me... Ill be a blue nosed gopher... Well, I guess he certainly has shown his true colors. He was a little scary anyway... Please! Let's all play nice. I'm waiting for a call from Long Island, a check from a Sheik in Dubai and a letter from Obama.
Here's what's real on my mind. Piss on the guitar... Some of my good friends, and you know who you are, and if I call you my friend it's like your in "My Posse and I yours." Trusting with no complications.
Clive Brown, Scott Lentz, Graham Platt, The "Det", Joe B., Uncle Charlie, Max Baranet, T.Wittrock, Chuck Block, Rick Gould, my amazing guys in Detroit, Nashville, Florida whom you people will never meet...and tons more...
All I'm saying is, it's a guitar. We all have are opinions on it. Leave it at that. You all keep your opinions to yourselves or not. It's my guitar, let me do the ragging!!! Because at the end of this it's what I think, not what your guy said or that guy said this or he didn't buy it cuzz that guy said that this guy said... You are all my friends, even Richard and he's an asshole! Just kidding Ricky Boy. Yes, I like you all, but I have to say there are some real dumb ass mofos out there and you know who you are...!!! That being said, when this is all over someone is going to own the rarest, best condition, sounding, playing and most expansive original '60 Explorers out there, I think maybe 3 or 4 '60s made. With a gigbag... LOL....kidding...
Adios mi compadre,

Tom,
I'm not sure what is going on... I've been gentle. No, I don't get? Half these post are bad mouthing people name calling, all sort od stuff. I don't see you pull that off, and I'm trying to keep it in check... This is my guitar... I'm trying to moderate. Sure, I get a bit flared up, but it's all in fun... never mean... You need to start from square one and see the insults, name calling, cry baby stuff. I hope this is not a one way witch hunt, Buzz me as I'm a phone guy. 619-988-9777 as I've already talked to my uncle...
Cheers, and please keep the faith....

It's either a fake or it's not, regardless of opinions.

It was previously sold as a fake per F-Hole.

This is worse than the used car business.

Oh, it's real. But now I'm getting slammed for my honesty whilst the masses lie and B.S... I think I know what going on. It's going beyond just this guitar. Reputations are at stake... I'm getting now. It's like every morning I wake up it's becoming clearer & clearer with the help of a few insiders to what's going on... call it crazy, but this is what's happening... BH

You do realize there is no award for the most posts in a day, right?

And I think you may be getting paranoid. Nobody is slamming you.

All it needs is a Gary or a Clive. Better yet, Clive don't need me... He's spot on, on his own! BH

Are you pissed on one pint again you old tart? :rofl I remember you sleeping in your pickup truck, pissed as a loose fart in a hurricane after only drinking one pint:roflAnd yeah I don't have that hot Jewish/Mexican vibe going on that you have :dang I just got the ugly Shrek Irish thing happening. :jim

And yeah, fair is fair, you n me have never had a problem, we can speak on the phone, and I remember we even did a killer burst deal together! :dude:

And while I'm blowing smoke up your arse, your B.H. Guitar Polish really IS the best in the world. I endorse it wholeheartedly. You can use my name in advertising if you like. Big James Stevenson hooked me up with some. He musta stole it from your store last time he was there. :rofl

Richard, man you have a good memory for such a knuckle head! Sorry, didn't mean to call you a knuckle head! I mean the greatest man on earth... Sorry man! If I say the word Ouch or Chest they whack me whilst other can piss. Whoops! I meant urinate all day. My sincere apologies... Greatest man on earth... Mr. Hernandez

I thought all Korina Explorers were made in 1958? I thought they all had 58 serial numbers? I know the ones sold early/mid 60's still had inked numbers and didn't have impressed 62 serials. Have I gotten it wrong?

I wasn't aware of any with a 60 serial. Does this one have narrow or jumbo frets?

That's what I thought.... something like 19 in '58 and 3 in '59?

As for the "leftover parts" early 60's Explorers, I thought they were only in '63?

Boy, this thread is so confusing.

What I really want to know is - when did Kanye buy that Explorer??
