    DESCRIPTION
    This is a mint condition used Limited Edition Epiphone Brent Hinds Flying V Custom. The peel off plastic is still on the pickups, pickguard, and base plate. Any images that look like they show scratches are just on this protective film, not the guitar. As noted below, the pickups are NOT stock- they are generic PAF style humbuckers.

    It has two volumes, and a tone knob with kill switch.

    TERMS
    Price includes shipping to the continental US. USPS, UPS, or FedEx, trackable. 5-9 days unless faster shipping specified and the difference paid for by the buyer.

    Paypal and Square's Cash App are great. Local Pickup OK as well. I'm in the Orlando area.

    The only things not stock about this instrument are:

    The pickups are NOT the stock Lace Sensor pickups. The pickups in this instrument are generic vintage style humbuckers with a more traditional tone/sound.

    Action set up with slightly lower string height than the stock settings for easier playability.

    Here's one photo- more at the bottom of the post as thumbnails.

    KNOWN ISSUES:
    None I could find other than noted above.

    FYI:
    The Gibson '1958' Rounded Profile Neck that Brent Hinds selected for this guitar is a thicker neck. Like all Gibson or Epiphone Flying V's I've tried, the instrument is neck heavy and prone to 'neck dive'. I use a generic inexpensive wide leather strap and this has been enough to prevent any issues.

    SUMMARY
    The instrument looks amazing, sounds phenomenal. This instrument is capable of so many great tones- don't think of it as just a Mastodon or metal guitar. It has a fantastic vintage tone and playability that is highly versatile.

    Comes from a smoke and pet free house and I've never played it outside the house.

The truss rod cover has the Gibson/Epiphone Bell-Shape with 2-layer (Black/White) binding and "Brent Hinds" in white.

    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 for his signature Flying V 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 Ltd. Ed. Brent Hinds Flying V Custom comes with super pro Grover® Rotomatics™ machine heads with an incredibly accurate 18:1 turning ratio.
