The "Korina Standard #9"
In 1995/1996, a limited edition of less than one hundred Korina Standards was built, this is No 9. These were basically replicas of the original Gibson Explorer of 1958 with a white scratchplate and covered pickups.
Tom Dumont of No Doubt was featured holding a Korina Standard in contemporary advertising.
One hundred Korina Standards is a significant number given that the total number of original Standards produced between 1975 and 1985 was less than four hundred!
A new basic model Standard was introduced in 1997 the same as the Korina Limited Edition but built entirely from mahogany.
