I just bought my Epi V yesterday from a local retailer as a used model. I had no idea these were such neat-o guitars! It is light in weight beyond my wildest expectations. The quality is at least adequate.I bought the guitar in the afternoon, took it home, stretched out the strings, broke one, and replaced it. I cleaned it up, adjusted the truss rod, and tried to lower the bridge. Here is where we run into a problem. The bridge adjusting screws are already flat against the pickguard, thereby not allowing adjusting the strings any closer to the neck. Luckily, the truss rod adjustment got the strings sufficiently close to the neck to be playable.I took the guitar with me to a show by my friends' band that night. They play honky-tonk country, rockabilly, blues and whatever else they are in the mood for that night. I told them that I had a guitar I wanted to show them, but was going to wait until just before the last set. When it was time, I went out and got the guitar, and brought it in. I got a few laughs. However, the lead guitarist sat and played with it for a while and agreed to use it during the last set. He played a bluesy, rockabillyish kind of country song, and did some extensive soloing with it. I'll be danged if it didn't sound great! I am sure it will get played again.This is not a Gibson. It is a very cool, cheaper alternative to a Gibson. Do not think that you will sound like Albert King, J. Geils, Lonnie Mack or Stevie Ray Vaughan if you play one of these. You will, however, sound as good as you want to, and will have a ball playing it, looking VERY cool in the meantime. You will also not be able to play it sitting down without a strap. It is a very clumsy guitar. I banged it against EVERYTHING I got close to! No wonder the ones I have seen on stages are kind of beat up!The hardware, fit and finish are not up to Gibson standards, but it is NOT a Gibson!This guitar is a really fun guitar for all types of music. I would not recommend this guitar for your primary instrument, but I DEFINITELY recommend you have one around for fun!

Like that other guy, I can't understand where all these high ratings come from. I've had it for two years (been playing for 4) and changed the bridge to an EMG-81, in the hopes of improving the tone, which it didn't. I don't know, maybe it's me, but for soloing the tone just plain sucks. Heavy riffs sound pretty good though, but it's really stopping me in progressing as a solo-guitarist, so if anyone would mind giving me some advice, it'll be much appreciated!

By Rocko77

AWESOME GUITAR

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is an incredible guitar. I enjoyed buying this guitar. When it came to my home I just couldn't wait to tune it. It hasn't caused me any problems. The one drawback I find with it though is that it is horrible for being placed on the owners lap.

Best Guitar I Have Yet.

By stonecolddude16

from barberton, Ohio

I own 4 guitars including the flying V here. And out of all those guitars this is the best one and my favorite too. I Love the pick-ups it has in it they are really nice for stock pick-ups. I'm actually thinking of gigging with this guitar in the future. If someone rates this guitar as mediocre then they just don't know how to play it then. Because this guitar has everything you'll need for playing anywhere or anything. The better the play the better it will sound that simple. If your beginner or a pro this guitar is a nice guitar too have trust me. You wont be let down! BUY IT!

Great Metal Guitar

By Aegenroth-Gerhard

from BHM, South Africa

The Gibson Epiphone 1967 Flying V is a great choice!I bought mine when my mates and I started a hard rock/metal band. It has an amazing bass tone and the fretboard is comfortable enough for shredding. Very durable too, mine has taken a lot of punishment and still delivers the same great sound it has the first time I plugged it in.

Good guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this guitar about 2 and a half years ago and liked it right from the start. It's perfect for some one who's just starting out or even intermediate players. It doesn't stand up to the gibson of course but it's a good start. I was surprised to see that the tuning pegs were grover and even more surprised of how light it was. The pickups have surprisingly good tone and don't get to muddy even with heavy distortion. The pickups don't sound as good in clean but for the price I'm not complaining. Over all this guitar has potential.

good guitar if your cheep

By A Guitarist

from Alabama

I bought this guitar, and it's amazing for its price. It has great sound and a sweet body. It's a little awkward since its a flying v but you get used to it. However, you can get something better.

Darn Right

By Bell Boy

from Horton, Kansas

This guitar is awsome . I bought this for an upgrade from my SG Special and it has been an upgrade for sure. I mean i play in a rock band that plays metalcore, punk, emo, old rock, everything it was it awesome for all of the songs. This guitar also puts off awsome harmonics for metal songs. just flat out the best for its price,
