The Epiphone Flying V Electric Guitar in Ebony from the 'Inspired by Gibson' Collection recreates an ultra-rare 1958 classic with an Ebony finish. The Flying V screams rock and roll heritage thanks to its iconic body shape and appearance in many a guitar legend's hands. From Jimi Hendrix to James Hetfield the Flying V is one of the ultimate rock and roll guitars, a classic guitar reimagined for the modern guitarist.
The classic shape of the Flying V is composed of solid Mahogany to ensure fantastic warmth of tone with sustain for days. Mahogany offers plenty of bite, making it equally as good for soloing as it is for rhythm playing, with plenty of versatility whether utilising clean or distorted tones.
Slim Taper 'C' Profile Neck
The neck is also crafted from Mahogany, ensuring parity with the body tonewood. Shaped to the Slim Taper C profile, you can be sure of a comfortable playing feel no matter whether you're fretting chords or letting rip with a searing lead lick. Married to the neck is an Indian Laurel fretboard which ensures a sumptuous playing feel, marked by white dot inlays to ensure you never lose your way.
Two ProBucker Pickups deliver crisp and articulate tones, perfect for rock and the styles around it. There's no mud here, these pickups translate your playing in a clear fashion with a nice high output. The bridge pickup excels in the midrange whilst the neck gives plenty of body, with detailed low end and a bit of percussive treble tone. CTS Electronics ensure that vintage tone abounds here, with a three-way pickup selector plus two volume and one tone knobs give you plenty of scope for sonic sculpting.
The Flying V has a LockTone Tune-o-Matic bridge with a unique looking Flying V String-Thru tailpiece to ensure fantastic intonation and an easily adjustable action. Working in conjunction alongside the Epiphone Vintage Deluxe tuners with an 18:1 ratio, you get tuning stability that won't let you down no matter how much you windmill.
The Epiphone Flying V Electric Guitar in Ebony is a rock and roll legend reimagined. With premium electronics and hardware at a more than reasonable price point, this guitar will allow you to be a legend of rock without the multi-million-pound record deal.
