I bought this "harlequin" Epi guitar on a "spur of the moment" decision; I own and play several Schecter guitars, a Gibson '76 re-issue Explorer, Hamer Standard Flametop (Explorer copy), an old (early 80's vintage) Ibanez Les Paul copy and several others; as a lark, I just decided one day to add a "V" to my arsenal - and this Epi '67 re-issue Harlequin (black and white)"V" was the first thing to catch my eye - and at a very decent price - a nice mate / counterpoint to my Explorers. This axe is Korean-made, and I have come to expect pretty solid quality from Korean production (they are absolute masters when it comes to spectacular abalone bindings / inlay work). I figured this Epi would be reasonable axe, if nothing special. When it arrived, I immediately tried it out - and man, I couldn't put it down again for at least three hours. Super consistent quality finish (no uneveness, no dips in the surface, very nicely lacquered)> the guitar feels great (not especially heavy) and the neck - the neck is the smoothest, most comfortable playing neck I've ever encountered. Perfectly sanded fret ends (not the faintest snag)and nice fret thickness. The action was nicely set up - low and fast right out of the box (no buzz eiter)- couldn't ask for better. Looks aside, I was suprised by the versatility of the Epi pups. Playing through my Peavey Valve King amp (or Microcube practice amp), they offer plenty of satisfying crunch, though I did have to raise the bridge pickup a smidgin. Great sustain, without excessive hum or unwanted noise. In fact, despite the Epi image of being Gibson's low end cousin, this Epi "V" sounds just as good and the neck plays considerably better than my Explorer. I'd gig with this axe anyday - it is the best impulse gamble I've ever made. Though not all Epis may match up, this re-issue '67 Harlequin "V" is a winner at any price - and it looks wicked, too.

This guitar is ok, but for the price you can get something much better. This guitar weighs like nothing and it feels kinda cheap.The pickups are bad with tone and everything and it keept on going out of tune. My advice really is just to save your money and get something better. People think this is a rock guitar i don't think so.

Epiphone two-tone 1967 Flying V

By spacepirateatomsk

from Boston, MA

This guitar is really amazing. I got it a few months ago as an upgrade from my first guitar (squier strat). The paint job on this v is absolutly beautiful, without a single flaw. The neck is amazing, super smooth and easy to play. It's wider than many electric necks, witch makes it easier to fret notes cleanly. I play through a Fender frontman dsp 25, and it sounds great with the epi pickups clean or distorted. The guitar has surprising tonal versatility, and it can go from deep warm classic gibson to gritty, high attack treble tones. The grover tuners of course stay in tune forever, and the action/intonation was set up really well right out of the box. I may change the stock strings to a heavier gauge, since the high e and b can sound a little thin, but over all, this is an extremely well made guitar that sounds like it costs WAY more than it does. Also, you can easily play it sitting down if you put your leg in between the two wings of the guitar.

Not what I expected from an Epipohone...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This Epi flying v is amazing! I bought it about 3 months ago, nad I am surprised that that this Epiphone is great. I bought the guitar because I'm a die hard UFO/MSG/MIchael Schenker fan. The finish on this guitar is pure Schenker. I put on a Gibson truss rod cover, and I even put a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge, and a Gibson 57 classic in the neck, plus schaller tuners and humbucker rings, just like SCHENKER himself! It's fabulous! And it plays great. Get it now, and it will be the best money you ever spent.

Stylish Looks

By Extreamist

from South Portland ME

This guitar has stylish looks, and it works for the heavyist heavy metal players, and it also sounds good for soft players. I bought this guitar because it's nice looking, but I didnt expect it to sound as good as it does.

Awesome

By Anonymous

This guitar is amazing, very good for clean or distortion, I play in a band where we use both, and I can depend on this guitar to do the job either way. definitely worth the price, to be fair to this guitar they should raise the price.

Could be better

By Metal Ropeburn

from Nowhere,VA

I think this guitar is ok for the amount it cost. I know that mine was blazing after I disposed of my Crate 15 watt. And added 81/85 Emgs. The neck action is really great as well. It would better if they had a tremelo though. If you need a guitar that can handle metal choose this. Just don't expect it to become your main guitar.
