The Epiphone Flying V Electric Guitar is inspired by Gibson's 1958 futuristic classic. Now Epiphone brings the Flying V into the modern age with premium components and high-performance pickups. This solidbody electric guitar boasts a resonant mahogany body and comfortable SlimTaper neck for effortless playability. The 22-fret Indian laurel fingerboard provides a smooth feel under your fingers. Powered by Epiphone ProBucker pickups, this ax delivers the punchy tone and sustain that has made the Flying V a rock legend.

ProBucker Pickups Provide Arena-Ready Tone

The Epiphone Flying V is loaded with Epiphone ProBucker humbucker pickups in the neck and bridge positions, wired to CTS potentiometers for superlative tonal control. These hot, higher-output pickups provide tight, articulate lows, rich mids and crisp, detailed highs for a sound that cuts through the mix. The bridge pickup delivers tight, articulate lows and aggressive mids with singing highs, ideal for shredding leads and heavy rhythm work. The neck pickup provides warm, rounded lows, punchy mids and airy highs perfect for thick, distorted chords and searing solos.

Resonant Mahogany Body with Classic Flying V Style

The Epiphone Flying V gets its distinctive futuristic shape from a solid mahogany body with an angular profile. Mahogany provides a resonant tonal foundation with punchy mids and excellent sustain. The body's unique shape is not just for show—its smaller size improves comfort and balance. A single cutaway provides easy access to the upper frets, allowing expressive soloing and extended range. The Flying V's timeless silhouette is finished in Ebony for a sleek, rock-ready look.

Vintage-Styled Hardware for Road-Tested Performance

Epiphone outfits the Flying V with premium hardware for rock-solid tuning stability and sustain. Epiphone Vintage Deluxe tuners provide an 18:1 gear ratio for precision tuning. The LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor the strings to the body, enhancing resonance and sustain. A Graph Tech nut improves tuning stability at the headstock. This high-performance hardware allows the Flying V to stand up to the rigors of the stage and studio.
