The Gibson Custom Kirk Hammett Flying V Aged Electric Guitar was created in celebration of Kirk's amazing career, his influence on generations of guitarists and his ever-evolving approach to the craft of guitar playing. The Gibson Custom Kirk Hammett signature Flying V is a true recreation of Kirk's own 1979 Flying V, which has been his trusted companion throughout his playing career.

A 1 piece mahogany body and 3 piece mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard gives the Kirk Hammett Flying V that powerful, biting tone that is perfectly suited for hard rock and heavy metal. Gibson Custom went to great lengths to capture every last detail of Kirk’s original beat up instrument.
An EMG 81 and EMG H pickup combination gives the Gibson Custom Kirk Hammett Flying V great versatility and that classic crunchy tone Kirk is known for. With one of the most recognizable tones in heavy metal, Kirk knows the importance of having a killer pickup set in his axe.
A commanding rank of 11th in Rolling Stone's ‘The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time’ might be enough for most people. However, you can cross Kirk Hammett of the list of ‘most people’. Producer, Actor, Student, Father and arguably one of the most influential guitarist to ever fly the ‘Heavy Metal’ banner. Kirk Hammett is one of the most multi-dimensional artists of recent history.
Perhaps the most impressive accomplishment in Kirk's long career however is the emphasis he can put on both ‘long’ and ‘career’, especially within the grinding, heartless gears of a genre known for flash-in-the-pan stardom and fleeting fame. But, like any true craft, Heavy Metal has Masters and true Masters stand the test of time. Kirk is inarguably a Master of the Heavy Metal genre.
