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.

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/Epiphone 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 Claws 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.
