    Product Description

    The Epiphone Korina Flying V was ahead of its time when it was introduced and it's as relevant today as ever! Epiphone proudly presents the historic Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V in a solid Korina body with Alnico Classic Humbuckers, and gold hardware.

    The Legend of the Flying-V:
    The Flying-V electric guitar was first released in a very limited run in the late 50s and was one of the most radical designs of its time. Somehow, many of those rare originals wound up in the hands of rock’s greatest guitarists including Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack along with Keith Richards and Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones. Today original Flying-Vs are some of the most expensive instruments on the vintage market. Embraced by classic rock and metal fans, the Flying-V is one of the most recognized electric guitars in the world (coming in second only to the Les Paul) and is one of the most popular designs in Gibson and Epiphone’s long history. Now, Epiphone introduces the legendary Flying-V to a new generation with an all Korina (also known as African Limba) body with modern hardware and superb vintage voiced Alnico Classic Humbuckers.

    Solid Korina Body:
    The Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V is made from solid Korina, one of the great tone woods for electric instruments. Korina was first used by Gibson in the late 50s for the first limited run of both the Flying V and the Explorer. Korina quickly drew the admiration of luthiers and guitarists for their warm tone and strong resonant properties. The new Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V is finished in Antique Natural to show off the guitar’s fine and delicate grain. Korina wood is also lightweight, easy to hold, and comfortable to play.

    The neck has a classic "1960's" SlimTaper D-Profile and a 24.75” scale, perfect for any style. The Rosewood fingerboard has a 12” radius, traditional pearloid "Dot" inlays, a 1-11/16” nut, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Flying’s V’s trademark “V” headstock has a classic 60s era "Epiphone" script logo in pearloid along with Epiphone solid nickel premium die-cast "Deluxe" Tuners with Tulip buttons with a 18:1 tuning ratio for fast and reliable tuning.

    Alnico Classic Humbuckers:
    The Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V is powered by an Alnico Classic humbucker in the neck position and an overwound, slightly hotter Alnico Classic Plus humbucker in the bridge position. Similar in tone to the original “PAF-style” humbuckers of the original Flying-V’s, Alnico Classics use Alnico-V magnets for a higher output with enhanced mids and highs. Alnico Classic humbuckers are carefully wound to reveal the full tonal range of the Korina body for exceptional power and detail. Controls include individual volume controls for each pickup and a master tone, all with vintage-style Black “Top Hat” knobs.

    Solid Epiphone Hardware:
    Epiphone hardware is guaranteed for the life and the Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying-V features a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and traditional Flying-V style String-Thru Body "V" metal plate along with an Epiphone all-metal non-rotating ¼” jack. All hardware, including the “Deluxe" machine heads, is gold (solid nickel), a perfect compliment to the Antique Natural finish.

    Lifetime Warranty:
    The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Korina Flying V comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson’s world famous 24/7/365 expert Customer Service.

    Beautiful craftmanship

    What is your opinion of this product?
    This guitar is incredible, beautiful hardware and design, plus a nice fat neck for comfort. I have played this non-stop since I have gotten it, and it sounds great (with a nice crunchiness). Well worth it.

    An awesome guitar!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I bought a scratch & dent/return model. So I was definitely putting my faith in AMS' hands. Well, the guitar came today and I am more than pleased! It's perfect! Not a single flaw. Even had all the plastic still covering the pick guard, pickups, bridge, jack plate and truss rod cover! All case candy included, etc. Tuned it up and it plays flawlessly! What a sweet ax for the money!

    Great 'bang for the buck'
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This guitar is as close as you are going to get to playing a 1958 Flying V. It is also about 3 to 4000,000 cheaper. Or about 7000.00 less than a custom shop model. I bought a Epi Flying V about 20+ years ago and was not impressed at all. Lousy P/Us, cheap hardware ect. Epiphone has really improved in the last decade. IMHO

    A keeper -- despite its flaws
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Considering the minimal packaging, it's a wonder it arrived in one piece. But it did and, aside from a couple of cosmetic blemishes, is a wonderful guitar. Just over 6 lbs, decent action right out of the (battered cardboard) box, beefy, authoritative sound, resonant body. And it should be said that if you want a guitar that actually looks like an original Flying V, and you don't want to spend 5 grand, this is the only way to go. This is my fourth crafted in China Epiphone, and I can't really overstate what a great value they are.

    Better than expected
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I am really impressed with this V. The pickups sound very close to some vintage Shaw Humbuckers I have in another V so I'll keep em. The only issue I found is that the high E string groove in the nut is cut just a wee bit too deep causing it to buzz slightly (open), that's an easy fix. I would have gave it a five star rating but the nut issue gets it a four. It really is a beautiful guitar that plays great with super low action, it's neck is a little chunkier than some of my Gibson V's but still plays fast. It's a great value, I would buy another one. Oh........get the case!
