So I went to a nearby store today called Cash Converters.
There i saw a few guitars, but one really stood out for me, an Epiphone Flying V. It was nice. It had a black finish and when I saw it I immediately thought of Kirk Hammet's Flying V in the old Metallica photos.

It had a few nicks in the paint, the strings needed to be replaced and the pickups looked uneven. Other than that it was in very good condition.
It was $300, and they won't negotiate a lower price.

Is this a good deal?

As long as everything functions properly, the knicks aren't too big, or noticeable from more than 15 feet. Otherwise, it sounds like a very good deal. Just prop the pickups, which won't take any time, and get a $10 set of strings, and you should be playing it in no time. Anyway, yes, seems to be a very good deal.

P.S. Yes, Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield both used to own about 5 Black w/ Gold Hardware Gibson Flying V's to use on stage. They were very nice, and I would very much like to have one ^_^

To be honest I thought there weren't any nicks or scratches untill I examened it really closeley.

Oh and the pic I thought of was this:

EDIT:
The only differences were:
1. Its Epiphone, not Gibson
2. No black rings around pickups.

Well, if you had to really examine it to find any scratches, then it sounds fine. And yes, Kirk rules ^_^ He just changed the pickups out probably. Omg, I love Flying V's, lol. Anyway, I'd say go for it 100%.
