Nice, but not without some issues

Frank Strijkplank, 30.11.2017
So, every bass player needs to go overboard on some non-conventional design at least once, am I right? This bass fits that bill nicely, but not without some hiccups.
The first one I received had a fairly large scratch on the back of the neck. I contacted Thomann and they promptly replaced it with a new, undamaged bass.
The setup out of the box was terrible. I had to lower the action and straighten the neck considerably for the bass to be playable. Also, the stock strings are awful; I replaced them with a fresh set of Daddarios. The fingerboard was fairly dirty, so I cleaned it up and applied a generous amount of lemon oil. Now it has a nice, satin-like appearance to it. The pickups also needed some adjustment.
I can't really fault the finish of the bass. The wood is somewhat darker than the pictures would suggest, and the wood grain is really nice. The bass also is lighter than its size would have you believe.
Sound-wise this bass kills. Even with the stock electronics it growls and barks. It just wants to rock hard, end of story. Did I mention the looks will turn heads everywhere you go? I'm not much of a slap and pop guy, and I imagine the placement of the neck pickup makes this style a bit awkward to play. The controls make for a decent amount of variation in tone, but it's obvious that this bass is primarily meant for rock. If you're not afraid to do some adjustments yourself then it will fit that bill quite nicely.

Epiphone korina explorer bass

Daanbass , 15.01.2018
It's a beautifull looking bass and delivered perfectly by epiphone and thomann. No scratches or dings and wrapped in perfect. I would say it's an amazing bass for beginners or non-professional players because of the way it's easy to use but for more advanced players you start discovering some little flaws like the pickups that don't work as good as they should on the high notes. As you can expect from epiphone: a good instrument for a great price
