Overview

Epiphone proudly presents the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Brent Hinds Flying-V Custom, the debut signature model by the incredible Brent Hinds, lead singer and guitarist of Mastodon. Featuring the historic Flying V profile in a Silverburst finish with Lace USA Brent Hinds signature Hammer Claws Humbuckers and Grover Rotomatics 18:1 ratio machine heads. 

Modern legend Brent Hinds has been honored with both a Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award and by Guitar World for his ferocious guitar chops in Mastadon and has even appeared in the hit cable tv series, Game of Thrones. Epiphone is proud to welcome Brent into the House of Stathopoulo’s elite group of signature artists with his own take on his favorite guitar, the Flying V. 

Historic Flying V Style With A Modern Twist 
The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Brent Hinds Flying-V Custom features a Mahogany body with a Silverburst Finish and a Mahogany neck with the same profile of the original historic Flying V first released in the last 50s. Flying Vs have long been among Brent’s favorite guitars. His new Custom Flying V has a Mahogany neck with a 24.75” scale length and a “1958” rounded profile and is hand-set and glued in. The Ebony fingerboard has a 12” radius with Pearloid “Block” inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets.

The classic “V” headstock has Pearloid "Split Diamonds" with the now-famous 60s era Epiphone logo. On the back of the headstock is Epiphone’s "2016" Limited Edition symbol and Brent Hinds’ signature “Skull” logo. The body has 7-layer binding of alternating Pure White and Black while the Headstock and the pickguard have 5-layer Pure White and Black. The truss rod cover has the Gibson/Epiophone Bell-Shape with 2-layer (Black/White) binding and "Brent Hinds" in white.

Lace Hammer Claw Pickups 
To power his premier Epiphone Signature Model, Brent chose Lace USA Brent Hinds signature Hammer Claws Humbuckers which were designed by Brent to unleash a bright attack with a smooth midrange crunch along with balanced lows with highly responsive dynamics. Brent’s Lace Hammer pickups excel at all gain levels from clean to face-melting distortion. Controls are classic Black “Top Hats” with metal inserts and include individual volume pots for each pickup and a master tone control.

Classic Epiphone Hardware
Brent chose Epiphone’s legendary rock solid nickel hardware including a 1/4" Epiphone Heavy-Duty output jack with a 3-layer jack plate (Black/White/Black), a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge, and a Traditional “V” tailpiece with a classic string-thru body design. And, the Brent Hinds Flying V Custom comes with super pro Grover Rotomatics machine heads with an incredibly accurate 18:1 turning ratio

Lifetime Warranty
Like all Epiphone’s, the Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Brent Hinds Flying-V Custom comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service. Visit your Authorized Epiphone Dealer today and try out an Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Brent Hinds Flying-V Custom while they last!

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Brent Hinds Flying-V Custom Silverburst Electric Guitar:

    First off, the drums look fantastic. The kits really shine in venues with low lighting. The black base coat on the shells makes the low lighting fantastic for bringing out the deep maple grains and rich color in the finish. The shells come with great heads - Remo Ambassador's top and bottoms and Powerstroke 3 on the kick batter.
    Single-ply heads take more finesse tuning - learn to tune if you haven't already (or get different heads).
    These shells are amazing with proper tuning and single-ply but can sound absolutely terrible with sloppy or no tuning - this is more of an experience issue.
    The hardware on the shells themselves (mounts, fasteners, etc.) are complete junk. The lugs and tension rods are great, but the fasteners that tighten the tom floor legs and the kick mounts are cheap. They feel terrible and tighten unevenly - this is a minor item but needed to be mentioned.

    Overall, the kit is great. I'd recommend pulling the heads and rims off and tighten all of the screws from inside each shell. Put everything back on and tune each drum from scratch. I found with these drums my favorite sound is tune the resonant head noticeably higher than the batter - you will get a real nice pitch bend.

    Not a great guitar

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Brent Hinds Flying-V Custom Silverburst Electric Guitar:

        Personally i would not recommend this guitar simply because it has neck droop. (The neck of the guitar is heavier than the body so when you stand up and play the neck tilts the guitar, so in order to play this you need to hold the neck in place and fret notes, not fun. Ive only played this in a store when i was checking out flying v's, ive never owned it. But seriousoy dont buy this guitar. It may look awsome but it doesnt live up to the cost, but who knows maybe it was just that particular brent hinds v. Ps: most flying v's out there under $1,000 usually have neck droop.
