Epiphone Kirk Hammett 1979 Flying V, Purple Metallic Key Features

  • A Metal Icon Reborn - Inspired by other renowned Flying V players and his quest for a fuller, more powerful sound, Kirk's purchase of this guitar paved the way for a remarkable musical journey. The sound it produces is nothing short of legendary. Now, in a thrilling collaboration, Epiphone joins forces with the Gibson Custom Shop to bring you the Epiphone Kirk Hammett 1979 Flying V, an exacting recreation of Kirk's cherished original.
  • Crafted for Excellence - The Epiphone Kirk Hammett 1979 Flying V boasts a mahogany body that captures the essence of the original. Its one-piece mahogany neck, complete with a volute, ensures both stability and incredible playability. Grover Rotomatic machine heads, featuring distinctive "spade" buttons, keep your tuning precise. The guitar also features a custom bridge that contributes to its unique tonal characteristics.
  • Electrifying Sound - When it comes to electronics, this Flying V doesn't disappoint. It's equipped with a pair of Gibson USA Calibrated T-Type humbucker pickups, known for their impeccable clarity and power. These pickups are meticulously wired to CTS potentiometers and an Orange Drop capacitor, ensuring that every note you play is tonally exceptional. A Switchcraft 3-way pickup selector toggle switch and a 1/4” output jack offer you control over your sound.
  • Aesthetically Brilliant - The Epiphone Kirk Hammett 1979 Flying V proudly displays Kirk Hammett's logo on the rear of the headstock, a symbol of quality and authenticity. To protect this masterpiece, a black hardshell case with a sumptuous red plush interior is included, ensuring your guitar stays safe and sound.
