Epiphone announce the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Brent Hinds Flying-V Custom – the debut signature model for 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 late 1950’s. Flying V’s 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.

Modern legend Brent Hinds has been honored with both a Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award and by Guitar World for his ferocious guitar chops most often heard in Mastadon. Hinds has also appeared in the hit cable tv series, Game of Thrones. Now, 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 world famous Flying V.
