Sweet, that is a beutiful guitar with some premium features, I am a fan of V shaped guitars and their varients, the only thing I'm not diggin is the jack plate.

Definately like the nickel, I have Grover 18:1 Rotomatics on my Washburn Parallaxe and love them!

Congrats!

$799, MSRP is around $1300 but for me it was like $800-something after taxes. I won't be getting it until the end of April that's when my local Sam Ash is receiving the shipment. I'm a huge Mastodon/Brent Hinds fan so I had to have it. It will go well with my Silverburst Thunderhorse.

I have been GASing after another V, plus this is in silver burst and comes with his Lace pickups. Looks like I have found another guitar to buy!

I'm quaking at the knees for this.

I don't even care if its only an Epiphone. I've wanted a V that looks exactly like this that isn't $5000 for so long.

Canadian Dollars? Where? Taxes in Ontario are another 146.77 on top of that.

Las Vegas, I was reading about ebony fretboards last night and now have a fear of it cracking in the dry Vegas air.

Man that thing looks fucking sick. God, I want a V sooooo bad.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.
#20
That's a beauty! I've actually got a unique Gibson V of sorts on it's way to me in the mail (NGD thread will be coming, of course), but I bet that thing plays like butter. I've always thought block inlays and binding really add to the look of the classic V - Too bad a Gibson version of this would probably run $3-4K!

Post some sound clips of her in action if you can!

Mine came in today.



Anyone else get theirs yet?



Lucky son a gun, I still haven't gotten mine and I ordered it literally 30 minutes after Epiphone announced it. Hoping mine is in by this Monday, thats what the store told me gonna be really pissed if I don't get it soon. I sent out my Explorer for repair so all I have is my acoustic right now.
#23
Mine landed @ my local guitar shop on Friday. Luckily their tech was in today to look it over and they gave me a call right away.
Not mentioned in the Specs..... the tone knob also acts as a kill pot.

Silverbursts *Orgasm*
#25
Dammit, you have a Thunderhorse also. I really hope my V get's here soon. I gotta get me one of those Epi Silverburst SG's and complete my collection. Not really a Les Paul fan.
#26
I've been GASing for the '66 G400 SB for awhile now. Had to get this one first before they were gone. I know where there is one and it'll mine soon enough.
#27
Just pulled the trigger and ordered mine as well. It has been a while since I have bought a new guitar, normally go used. Can't wait!

Odd location for the jack. I think I've seen them everywhere else on V's, but not there. Looks a bit like that bout is wearing a sock.

Same place as the 58 Gibby V and Dean Vs. It's not that odd.


Would look better with a different plate IMO though.

Pray for me guys. Hope the store calls me today. Really wanna play the V, hadn't played electric in over 3 days. I was at my friend's the other night and absolutely went nuts on his Washburn. Lol

Man that V looks sick. If I didn't just buy a Fender Elite Strat not even a month ago I would order that instantly lol. I love the looks of that.
#35
Yeah they're super nice. I'd like it if they did one without a pickguard though.

Just got mine! Will post pictures tonight! Had to settle for a lackluster hard case. It's so light, and freaking beautiful in person. I'm a terrible guitar player but holding this thing makes me not care.

Won't be able to take off the stickers and factory strings till Wednesday. I'm gonna crank out Mastodon riffs for the next week or two so happy to finally get mine!

Can't wait to get it cleaned and put some new strings on!
