    I have worked a lot on this guitar, and since it is the first guitar I've done fretwork on myself, it has taken some time. The frets are now leveled and fret ends are rounded. In addition I mounted Tonerider Alnico 4 pickups with CTS pots and an Emerson Cap right after I got it. It now plays and sounds very good I think. :)

    It is now! :) (In fact it has been a good guitar almost from the start, but...) My plan has always been to replace it with a Gibson in time, but I'm not sure anymore... There's something about feelings when you have done some work, and it really pays off! :cheers:

    Great playing (Schenker?)! Nice pups. I have the same ones in a Fenix LP style but I've yet to wire the harness. Is your guitar one of the newer issues? My Epi korina V is 2000. Cheers
