Gibson Moderne Heritage Series 1983 Korina incl OHSC

A great and rare guitar in very good condition, no major dings just some natural play wear on the back of the neck (pictured) in no way detrimental to the playability and aesthetic of this guitar. Completely original, no mods, includes the original paperwork and Gibson hard shell case. Setup with 10’s.

The Gibson Moderne has always been a legendarily elusive guitar. Though blueprints of the original design exist, and several players claim to have seen original Modernes in music shops or at gigs, no one has ever been able to produce an example of the original 1958 guitar. In the early 1980s, Gibson decided to resurrect the Moderne based on those original blueprints, and they built 143 reissues with Tim Shaw-designed humbuckers and korina bodies. Though this serial is rare and collectable, it would be a mistake to consider it a mere collector’s item, because it sounds AWESOME! The bridge position has chunky low-end, classic PAF-style raspy midrange, and sizzling highs, and the neck pickup manages to sound thick and rich like melted chocolate while remaining clear thanks to its transparent high end. The three-piece korina neck also feels as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans! So, if you’re looking for piece of rock history that plays and sounds great, look no further than this marvelous Moderne!
