I just bought a collectors grade 83 korina explorer with the custom shop edition decal on the back of the head stock at an estate sale, at a stupid low price

almost zero buckle rash, can see a small amount of light worming in the laquer on the back, beautiful finish checking on it also

backstory, turns out I use to know the original owner back in the 80s, his mother died about 3 or 4 months ago and nobody knows how to find him, last anyone knew from what I've been told was he was homeless living on the streets, tons of pro touring equipment at the estate sale so I've been on the phone all day to a few people

yup original case as well, the case is in rough shape though, one latch busted and the handle is missing, lots of stickers and tape on it, which all seems odd as I know the guitar probably hadnt left the guys family home since it was brand new

fret board shot, haven't had time to polish the frets yet, but their in very good shape, little to no play wear on them at all
