74 Ibanez Korina V Finish


Recommended Posts

look at the pictures,find specs by googling or on gibson website

but the finish is a simple black(or white...i cant remember,but thre both easy colours)

or if its black...maybe add a touch of exoticness to it and add an ebony top?

umm original 58 and 59 V's were never black or white. They were antique natural which is basically a tinted clear coat. During the 83 reissue period there were numerous colors offered but are relatively rare now adays. They offered red white and black in addition to the regular antique natural. recently they have offered more colors from the custom shop but they are rather expensive as you would expect from the gibson custom shop.

Or probably just clear. Wet the wood with some white spirit and see what colour it goes, you might not need any tint at all. Korina is quite yellow under a finish, i am fairly sure the old V's and explorers where just clear coated korina

Another thing you may want to check is if its an old ibanez it may be ash and not korina. I did some research and found that they used ash for some reason. Didnt make much sense to me but you should still be able to get a similiar finish.
