    Brent posted on Instagram about him recieving a prototype for a signature Flying V yesterday.

    Looks pretty good, looks like he did want it in Silverburst originally (which I think would look amazing)

    He had some pretty strong words to say about it and Gibson in the previous post.

    It looks like it's got his signature Lace humbucker in the bridge position

    I have no idea who Brent Hinds is, but that is a sweet guitar. If the Epiphone version sells well, Gibson may just jump onboard.

    Brent is the lead guitarist for the band Mastodon. They can get pretty heavy but also quite progy.

    Yep, for all the musicians that have a signature, Hinds work with Mastodon should be enough to garner him one.

    However, I do like that guitar and if I ever bought a Vee, it would be an Epiphone.

    Your avatar is sweet. You've got some real talent there. I've heard of Mastodon, but never really checked them out. Btw, the V looks cool in black.

    I agree the V looks amazing in black but then how often do you see a silverburst V? it'd be pretty cool regardless.

    I'd also love it if they did an Epiphone version of Bill Kelliher's Explorer. That thing is a thing of beauty

    imo they're the coolest thing to happen in metal in a long, looong time.

    They have elements of: Country, Surf, Prog, Thrash, Rock, Blues, etc. in their songs. Very cool stuff.


    His comments on Gibson in that earlier post are hysterical. :laugh2:

    Completely agreed Mal.
    Not only is the guitar element fantastic and interesting, Brann is an amazing drummer and the whole 3 singer thing is awesome.

    Ive been playing a lot of their stuff recently. Drop A tuning is a bit of a bugger though.

    I'd love it if Epi made this publicly available

    it took me a year to work my way through the Crack The Skye album.

    It's brilliant imo.

    Their other albums are good/interesting,...but something about CTS really appealed to me.

    and some parts, like the "No escape, binding spirits, No escape, trapped in time space" chorus in Divinations really reminds me of old Sabbath. But not in a copy-cat way,..it just has some of the feel and tone, to me.

    I really like that album a lot, all the way through.

    I have one of the Golden Axes, and it is indeed a beautiful guitar. (though I did have to sell my awesome Epi Korina Explorer to get it. :sadwave: ).

    One of these V's would make a killer companion to it! Thanks for posting up and sharing!

    Still haven't announced a release date or RRP yet.

    It's crazy to think I've been waiting about 15 months for this guitar to come out.
    Perfectly timed with a bonus I'll be getting in May!!!

    Nice guitar, let's blow it up. IMO, all V's should be string-thru. :dude:
