Working alongside the incredible Brent Hinds, guitarist and lead singer of Mastodon, Epiphone proudly presents the Limited Edition Brent Hinds Flying V Custom Electric Guitar. Bringing the best of classic Flying V and mixing in some modern features such as the custom Lace USA Brent Hinds signature Hammer Claws Humbuckers, this is a seriously solid guitar.
The Brent Hinds Flying V is crafted from mahogany making it extremely tough and dense to offer a deep and accurate fundamental tone. The body is finished in a silverburst coating complete with binding throughout that looks delicious!
The neck is also crafted from mahogany and comes with a 24.75" scale length and a "1958" rounded profile which is hand-set and glued in. A 12" radius ebony fingerboard contains the pearloid "Block" inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets making the Brent Hinds Flying V an absolute pleasure to play.
Clarity and crunch
To give this version of the Flying V some serious firepower, it comes loaded with Lace USA Brent Hinds signature Hammer Claws Humbuckers that were designed by the man himself to deliver bright attack with a smooth midrange crunch along with balanced lows with highly responsive dynamics. To control this beast, you have classic black "Top-Hat" controls with metal inserts - one for the volume of each pickup and a master tone control.
The Brent Hinds Flying V comes loaded with classick Epiphone nickel hardware including a 1/4" heavy-duty output jack with a 3-layer jack plate, a lock-tone tune-o-matic bridge complete with traditional "V" tailpiece with a classic string-thru body design.
Finally, for incredibly stable tuning under pressure, the Hinds Flying V Custom utilises pro Grover Rotomatics machine heads with an incredibly accurate 18:1 turning ratio. The Epiphone Limited Edition Brent Hinds Flying V Custom Electric Guitar is an impressive guitar in its own right and because it's a limited edition custom model, something you will want to treasure for years.
