Solid
Ochsensepp, 08.04.2018
I was looking for a new guitar with EMG? S / FloydRose and finally came across the Epiphone Richie Faulkner Flying V. The optics have absolutely flashed me, so I ordered them once.

When she finally arrived, the expectations were accordingly high, after all, she is no bargain.
The guitar was well packed and well padded in the gigbag. Yes, Gigbag. And something for one ....
Although the Gigbag is well-lined, the inner part consists of the same material as the outer skin of the Gigbag. I am of the opinion that at such a price a suitcase would have to be there.

Now to the guitar:

The optics convinced, no question.

The following can be said for processing: Mediocre
The pickguard stands at the pointed ends of the body and there had a small Dulle. The screws are not very well mounted, but you can overlook that.
The frets and the paint, however, are great.

She loves to play, at least while standing.
If you buy a V, but you know that before.

Sound is great, especially the neck pickup. Simply a metal board (tested with Peavey6505 + / Marshall1960AV).

All in all a solid tool, if you can see over minor quirks.

Good guitar, good value for money
Mickaël C., 19.02.2019
I bought this guitar for the look and the ccollection at the beginning, having never had a V I did not know what to expect in terms of ergonomics and playability

let's spend the ergonomic aspect precisely to focus on the main one:

_The sound: then the sound, well it's cut mainly for metal in my opinion, the set EMG, although reputed more organic than the 81/85 etc is still punchy, we will not be super clean center position, at the same time we do not buy the guitar for ca :)
for the distortion is the top, it tears off, the pickups have their character, we like or not the EMGs, personally I think they are doing very well and not only in METOL \ m / but also in disto plus soft hard rock style

_Quality of manufacture: So I dreaded it, I never had a scratch left the factory indo epiphone, I must say that I am pleasantly surprised, the guitar is very well built, which is relatively well finished, I 've still found dirt on the binding of the handle and traces of glue on the fretboard but it remains correct for a guitar of this standing
the frettage is very well done, the guitar is stable, it is delivered in 9-42 I spent it in 10, a pti key on the neck and hop it speaks more

the small accessories provided with its nice, the straplocks are not whew but it's better than nothing!

short a good 4/5 for this little epiphone that will delight the fan of flying V and the others if you get to make you in posture V!
