Jewel Korina

The JJ “Jewel Korina” is a road ready, double cut design offering all the tone expected from a stripped down, flat top vintage vibe set neck guitar made from the finest aged Korina

Equipped with Bare Knuckle VH2 Pickups, this guitar sonically delivers the sound of this classic – wood combination. Here is our latest generation Jewel Korina offering unsurpassed specification.

The construction of this guitar uses genuine aged Korina along with a one-piece set neck. This combination certainly contributes to the tonal balance of the instrument delivering that raw classic vintage Korina sound for which we are known.

 

The inspiration behind making this guitar was to produce a no frills, go to work tone machine and we are proud to have been able to develop this particular instrument and bring to you this sonic creation.

 

The process of working with our world-renowned artists, in particular with the amazing Kirk Fletcher who owns a mimi humbucker version of this guitar has been invaluable. The JJ Jewel Korina offers stunning lightly aged looks throughout and effortless playability. It truly is an honour to have been able to road test and collaborate with our artists to bring this instrument to the hands of our customers and retailers.

Neck Profile 9

Our standard neck profile has come as a result of road testing dozens of prototypes with some of the worlds best musicians. Through continued development and consultations with these players we ultimately concluded that out of all of our prototypes, neck profile “9” offered the ultimate balance of feel, playability and tone which is why we’re excited to bring it to you as standard on all our solid body guitars. We’ve very aware that sometimes the feel of a neck is subjective and everyone has there own preference, so if you’d like something a little more tailored to you then please get in contact with us here at JJ.
