58 Reissue Epiphone Flying V Korina (2009)

Epiphone Flying V Guitar in Rock Hill, SC

This guitar has not been played in any Rock Hill bands as of yet. It was purchased from a place in Florida and brought to Rock Hill. This bad boy is a favorite around the studio.

The Flying V is one of the most ragin’ and rockinest guitars ever made. Just playing it makes you want to turn a giant fan on and play in front of it in a crazy broad stance. Most people, though, don’t know that the guitar’s history goes way back before its heyday in the 70s and 80s. It goes back all the way to 1958 (per this remake)! It’s had quite the evolution in the world of guitars. You should be warned though: If you’re not ready to rock, you should stay more than 50 feet away from this guitar.

It has a crazy-fast mahogany neck and total upper fret access (yeah, you get all 22 with this thing… for shredding, of course), and two exploding Humbuckers that could potentially melt more than faces if not used carefully. The guitar was made in the Unsung Korean plant in 2009, which means that it is the real freakin’ deal (they were later made at a different place in China and not made as well, from what I’ve read).
