From the cacophonous chambers of rock history emerges the Epiphone Kirk Hammett '79 Flying V in a striking Purple Metallic finish. Inspired by the Metallica legend himself, this guitar tactfully merges audacity with precision.
Crafted from Mahogany, the body exudes a sonic depth that's hard to miss. Its Flying V contour doesn't merely stand out, it pretty much takes flight!
The neck is a one-piece Mahogany affair for well documented durability and resonance. The Indian Laurel fingerboard, graced with Mother of Pearl dot inlays, offers 22 frets over a 12" radius for seamless play. The Rounded "C" profile and Volute on the neck feels like an extension of one’s hand.
Gibson USA Calibrated T-Type pickups adorn both neck and bridge positions, ensuring a sound that’s as iconic as the guitar's lineage. With the integration of CTS Pots and Orange Drop Cap electronics, this axe promises a tonal palate that’s as expansive as Hammett's solos. The 2 x volume and 2 x tone controls only add to its versatility.
Its Purple Metallic finish is not just an aesthetic choice; it's a statement, a reflection of Kirk Hammett's vibrant legacy.
And, because every rockstar instrument deserves rockstar treatment, it's housed in a black hardshell case, lined with plush red interior. A warning: owning this guitar might cause spontaneous riffage.
