Epiphone Kirk Hammett 1979 Flying V
Flying High with this super cool Epiphone Flying V in Ebony finish!
Metallica fans may know the story: the 1979 Flying V was Kirk Hammett's first Gibson and the answer to his search for a fatter sound. Hammett used his Flying V on numerous Metallica classics such as Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets. Now you can own a piece of this Metal history with the Epiphone Kirk Hammett 1979 Flying V!
This Epiphone Flying V was designed in collaboration with Gibson Custom and you can hear, feel and see that in everything. Apart from the fact that it is a very convincing replica of Kirk Hammett's guitar, it is simply a very good V! Thanks to the mahogany body, one-piece mahogany neck, T-Type Humbuckers and custom bridge, this Epiphone sounds great, with that characteristic pronounced midrange that you are used to from a Flying V. The Epiphone Kirk Hammett 1979 comes with a case.
