Epiphone introduces the second signature guitar for Dethklok creator Brendon Small, the "Snow Falcon" Outfit. This guitar features a historic Flying V profile in a one-of-a-kind Snow Burst finish plus Gibson Burstbucker humbuckers with coil-splitting, KillPot switch, LockTone bridge, Stopbar tailpiece, and Grover Rotomatics machine heads plus a Premium Custom Fitted Gigbag.
Brendon Small is the co-creator and comedic--and musical--imagination behind Dethklok, the virtual metal band featured in the hit animated program produced by Adult Swim, Metalocalypse. Now, Epiphone and Brendon have collaborated for their second signature model and one that is truly worthy of Dethklok, "the world's greatest cultural force" and its lead guitarist Skwisgaar Skwigelf, who has already declared the new “Snow Falcon” as “totally Metal times infinity.”
Rise of the “Snow Falcon”
The Flying V is one of the Gibson and Epiphone family’s most iconic and original guitar designs. The new Ltd. Ed. Brendon Small “Snow Falcon” features a Mahogany body with the famous Flying V profile but without a pickguard in a Snow Burst color finish chosen by Brendon Small. The Snow Falcon has a Mahogany neck with a two-way adjustable truss rod and a 1960's SlimTaper D-profile. The neck comes with a Maple fingerboard with a 24.75” scale length, a standard 12” radius, and 22 medium jumbo frets. On the back of the headstock is a "2016" Epiphone Limited Edition logo. Both the body top and the fingerboard have single-layer white binding. A white premium custom fitted gigbag is included along with a Hand-signed Certificate of authenticity. An optional hard case is also available.
Gibson Burstbucker Humbuckers
For his second signature Epiphone, Brendon Small chose world famous Gibson Burstbucker humbuckers which are modeled after rare late 50s humbuckers found in “Sunburst” Les Pauls that now go for over $150,000 on the vintage market. In the neck position is a Gibson Burstbucker-1 and in the bridge position is a slightly “hotter” Gibson Burstbucker-2 for leads. The simple controls feature White “Speed” Knobs and include a Master Volume with a push/pull control for applying coil-tapping to both pickups and a Master Tone that also doubles as a KillPot switch for classic “stutter” effects.

The Ltd. Ed. Brendon Small "Snow Falcon" Outfit comes with world class rock solid Epiphone hardware including a solid nickel fully adjustable LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a solid nickel Heavy-Duty Non-Rotating 1/4" output jack, and legendary Grover Rotomatics machine heads with an 18:1 turning ratio for fast and accurate tuning.
