Solidbody Flying V Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany SlimTaper Neck, Indian Laurel Fingerboard and 2 ProBucker Humbucking Pickups with CTS Pots
When it was first introduced in 1958, the Flying V added a radical, futuristic design to Gibson’s line of guitars. Now, Epiphone has recreated this legendary classic and Musician’s Friend couldn’t be more excited about the new Epiphone Flying V. As part of Epiphone’s new Inspired by Gibson Collection, the Epiphone Flying V is packed with a pair of ProBucker humbuckers with CTS electronics, a Flying V string-thru tailpiece and Epiphone Vintage Deluxe tuners. With a fast-playing SlimTaper neck construction and cutaway on both sides, this guitar will have you ready for any stage.
Iconic Flying V Design
Musician’s Friend customers who were fans of the original Flying V will be sure to enjoy the Epiphone Flying V. Its mahogany construction gives it a rich midrange and sustain. With cutaways on both sides, you’ll get unrestricted access to each fret. Additionally, its SlimTaper C-profile neck will ensure you can fly as fast you’d like up and down the Indian laurel fretboard on this Epiphone Flying V.
Epiphone ProBuckers have become one of the most talked about pickups in the industry. We at Musician’s Friend think the Epiphone ProBuckers are the real deal. They’re made with 18 percent nickel silver unit bases and covers—the same alloy used by Gibson at the Kalamazoo factory when the humbucker was first invented. The use of nickel silver works to reduce the occurrence of eddy currents due to low conductivity. It also provides a more transparent and crisp output.
The Epiphone Flying V is also equipped with a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and string-thru tailpiece that guarantees longer sustain and better tone. Additionally, the Epiphone Vintage Deluxe 18:1 ratio provides you with the most precise tuning capabilities.
Inspired by a 1958 Rarity
Though it’s inspired by a Gibson classic, the Epiphone Flying V is built for the modern player. With high-quality and upgraded electronics, premium hardware and distinctive look, this Inspired by Gibson Collection guitar will have you sounding like the rock icons that once inspired you.
