This 2017 Epiphone Brent Hinds Flying V Custom is a factory demo, and is marked "used" on the back of the headstock for that reason. I see no significant defects of any kind. There are no scratches or dents. The "used" stamp and the removed last 3 serial numbers keep this from being absolutely mint.
The guitar is a great player with low, fast action. There is no buzzing, and all notes ring out clearly. The neck has a full 50s style carve and medium jumbo frets. The Brent Hinds signature Lace Sensor pickups sound great too.
This guitars is ready to play and looks great. I've always been partial to silverburst guitars, as my first real electric guitar was a silverburst Les Paul Custom that will always be with me. This guitar really captures that vibe with the full block inlays on the real ebony fretboard, the multiply binding, and the split diamond headstock inlay. This exactly what I would imagine a Les Paul Custom to look like if it morphed into a flying V. As an added bonus though, this guitar is a lot lighter than a Les Paul, coming in at 6 lb 11 oz.
