Product Description

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V Custom is the premier signature model from the legendary lead guitarist for Judas Priest. Featuring a classic Flying-V with EMG active pickups chosen by Faulkner, a Floyd Rose Tremolo and bridge and tailpiece with R2 Locking Nut, Grover Rotomatic machine heads, a Thin-C neck profile, and a custom designed gig bag.

When Richie Faulkner joined Judas Priest in 2011, his incredible speed, finesse, and control rejuvenated the pioneering English metal band and helped to introduce them to a new generation of fans. Now as Judas Priest approaches their 50th anniversary, Epiphone welcomes Richie Faulkner to our family of signature guitarists!

Epiphone LE Richie Faulkner Flying V Custom Features

  • EMG Active Pickups
  • Floyd Rose Tremolo and R2 Locking
  • Grover Rotomatic 18:1 ratio machine heads
  • Custom Gigbag and hand-signed certificate of authenticity
The new Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V Custom is a classic Flying-V with a Mahogany body in an Ebony gloss finish. The Mahogany neck has a Thin-C profile and is modeled after Richie’s favorite vintage Flying-V. Both the body top and headstock have multi-layer Black and Pure White binding. The neck is glued to the body with a traditional deep set joint and has a 24.75 scale length and an Ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, a 12 inch radius, and pearloid ‘Block’ inlays along with a ‘Falcon’ logo on 12th fret. The traditional Flying-V headstock has a 60s era pearloid Epiphone logo plus a Judas Priest Trident logo. The Floyd Rose R2 Locking nut (paired with the Floyd Rose Tremolo bridge and tailpiece) allows for incredibly precise tuning and sustain, a hallmark of Faulkner’s style.

EMG Active Pickups
For decades, EMG has been the preferred pickups for players who demand high volume, and sensitivity. The Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V features the classic combo of an EMG-66 (active) humbucker in the neck position and an EMG-57 humbucker (active) in the lead position, both with a Smooth Black Nickel finish. Each pickup uses Alnico V magnets and steel pole pieces (EMG-57) and ceramic pole pieces (EMG-66) for a tonal range and quality reminiscent of the famous PAF style humbuckers found in late 50s Les Pauls, but with added headroom, punch, and definition. Controls included an Epiphone all-metal 3-way pickup selector with black toggle cap and a Master Volume (25K) with a Black Speed knob. The 9-volt battery compartment for the EMG pickups is easily accessible on the back of the instrument.

Floyd Rose Tremolo
For years, Richie Faulkner has relied on the legendary Floyd Rose Tremolo 1000-Series bridge and tailpiece combination (along with the Floyd Rose R2 Locking nut) for rock solid intonation while blazing over the fretboard. The Richie Faulkner Flying-V includes Epiphone’s rock solid nickel hardware including an Epiphone all-metal 1/4 inch with metal Jack Plate and Grover Rotomatic 18:1 ratio machine heads. A custom Richie Faulkner deluxe gigbag is included along with a Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity in a presentation binder.

Lifetime Guarantee
All Epiphone instruments come with a Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson Brands’ world famous 24/7/365 Customer Service. Supplies are limited! Don’t miss your chance to take home the new Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V Custom.

Product Review

My guitar arrived and it was nothing like what the other reviews had described it the action is so high its unplayable.It's going to cost $100 to have it set up.When I pay $1000 for something I expect it to be set up and ready to play. Very disappointed,thinking of returning it.

Great Playing and Sounding Guitar

Product Review

I've had this guitar for a couple of months now and I am very happy with my purchase. This guitar feels great and has awesome tone. Mine came out the box fine but I prefer a lower action so I had a set up done to get it to my preference. I would highly recommend this guitar. Prior to this guitar I purchased a 2019 LP standard, which I love, but always find myself gravitating to the Faulkner V. Something about the tone I really like and its so easy and comfortable to play.

Best metal guitar for the money

Product Review

This Flying V is the biggest bang for you buck. Beautifully crafted. Sounds as great as it feels. Running this metal machine through a Marshall Code 50. Go for it! You will not regret it. Best Epiphone I have ever played.

Beautiful and awesome rockin' guitar!

Product Review

Love the Richie Faulkner V. Really dig the sound of these EMG pickups. I have a couple Vs (Epiphone Korina and Gibson Traditional Pro V). Already having 2, I wanted a different one and always wanted one with a Floyd Rose on it. All these Vs are nothing alike and unique to their own. I absolutely love the look of this V. I really dig the simplicity of just having the volume knob. The tone is perfect. While this V is made in China, the quality is still superb. They obviously have Quality Assurance in check. It's very well built, professionally put together and you can feel the quality through the weight of the V. I like square inlays on the neck. Not the most comfortable neck on a V I've played (still prefer the neck on my Epiphone Korina V). Neck feels a little chunky. Also the headstock is on the heavy side, so the head tends to dive if you don't hold it up. Otherwise, this is a very good quality V that won't disappoint and is worth the Richie Faulkner name.

Great guitar!

Product Review

I own several V's, Gibson, Jackson, older Epiphones the Richie Faulkner flying v tops them all. Right out of the box the guitar was set up perfectly. Fit and finish of this guitar is flawless, much more impressive than my 2016 Flying V Pro. Josh G. at AMS answered all my questions and was a pleasure to work with. AMS had this guitar to my house in 3 days. Great experience overall, I will purchase from Josh and AMS in the future.

Really love this guitar!!

Product Review

I was really excited when I saw this guitar, and waited for many months for it to come back in stock. It was totally worth it; the guitar is really beautiful and sounds fantastic! I am a big fan of Epiphone flying V, and it is all I play on now. If you are considering buying this guitar, I would highly recommend you do so!

You cannot find a better playing V guitar anywhere!!

Product Review

I've played a lot of great Flying V guitars and currently own 3 others but this guitar is amazing right out of the box! The fit and finish, the ebony fret board with jumbo frets, Floyd Rose tremolo and the EMG 57/66 pickups are all on par with guitars costing double the price of this guitar. I would suggest you buy one of these before they eventually sell out or go away completely!
