AMS Exclusive

This limited edition run of Flying V models is exclusive to AMS, so you will need to be in the States to pick one up. At this price point of $649-$699 each, they are a real bargain. However, you must separately budget for a hard case to protect your investment.

The American Music Supply site states that these models are due on 1 May.

Guitar Bomb Verdict

These models prove that Epiphone can release sub-$1000 guitars and are a great alternative to the recent Kirk Hammett Flying V, though from a different design era. The recent tease of Gibson-Inspired Epiphone models has shown that prices are rapidly increasing for this once-affordable brand.
