In a world where electric guitars often come off the assembly line with more than a hint of déjà vu, the Epiphone Kirk Hammett '79 Flying V is an electrifying exception. With roots tracing back to Metallica's early days, this model pays homage to Kirk Hammett's use and admiration of the Flying V.
The Mahogany body serves as a reliable foundation, delivering warmth and resonance. Paired with the Flying V silhouette, it's not just an instrument – it's an assertion.
Moving to the neck, you'll find one-piece Mahogany, showcasing the brand's dedication to quality. The Indian Laurel fingerboard adds a touch of elegance and is adorned with Mother of Pearl dot inlays. It also sports a 12" radius, ensuring smooth playability across all of its 22 frets. The neck’s Rounded "C" profile with Volute complements the player's grip.
Gibson USA Calibrated T-Type pickups nestle in both bridge and neck positions. With CTS Pots and Orange Drop Cap electronics, nuances are captured, and tonal versatility is expanded. The 2 x volume and 2 x tone controls further personalize the output.
Wrapped in a sleek Ebony finish, this guitar does more than play the part – it looks it. All of this culminates in an instrument which is a powerful tool in the hands and a nod to the legacy of Kirk Hammett.
To protect this beast, it's paired with a black hardshell case featuring a luxurious red plush interior.
