I can't believe it's not Gibson

Tim the Enchanter, 19.04.2017
I took a leap of faith and ordered the Epiphone Brent Hinds Flying V Custom from Thomann even though I live in Australia. I couldn't play it before I bought it but the price (even when shipped to the other side of the world) was just too good to be true.

8 days later and it arrived at my door with a pristine box. There was not a mark on the packaging. Inside the Thomann shipping box was the Epiphone box and about thirty feet of giant bubble wrap. The packaging was unbelievably secure, I need not have worried.

Upon unboxing my V the shock set in. The fit, finish and build quality was amazing. The ebony board felt exactly like my 1973 SG Custom's. The Silverburst finish was beautiful, it just sparkled. All the knobs and switches felt good and the input Jack was tight. It has huge strap buttons on it, bigger even than any of my Gibsons. I decided to tune it up and give it a blast through my Orange TH30 with 2x12 cab. To my utter joy it was set up and tuned to drop C already. I don't know what huge strings are on it stock but they are thick and not at all floppy in drop C.

I plugged in and started playing the opening notes to Mastodon's "Oblivion" loud. Really loud. Then it hit me like a truck. It sounded just like Mastodon. The really amazing thing about this guitar is the pickups. The Lace USA Hammerclaws are that final piece of the puzzle that made my do a back flip for pure joy. They sound absolutely incredible. I watched a YouTube review of this guitar before I bought it by a very popular English guitar reviewer who said "This is the first Epiphone that I have ever played that plays like a Gibson". How true this was.

The only thing that I needed to get a bit used to was the 18:1 Grover tuners. Not used to that ratio but it holds tune so well that it might take some time before I actually get used to them.

If you like Mastodon, Silverburst guitars, Flying V's or dropped tuned Heavy riffage then you simply cannot go wrong with this guitar. Forget that it says Epiphone on the headstock because once you grab that thick '58 profile neck and belt out some decibels you will not regret it. Oh and the tone pot is a legit push push kill switch. The little things, got to love them.

It doesn't matter what the other guys are playing, pull this guitar out and the attention is on you. All of it.

Excellent guitar

Geco, 26.06.2017
The guitar looks amazing. Plays great and because of the jack position it is very easy to play while sitting.
The pickups are excellent, very clear and defined sound.
The neck is absolutely the best thing about this guitar. I was blown away within 30 seconds. Epi's Slim taper D was my favorite neck shape so far but this one took the top spot in a matter of 1 minute.
I will only need some time to get used to the switch being so close to the bridge as I'm used to the LP guitar.
I gave 4 stars for features only because it could come with the hard case at that price.
