A genuine Flying V, through and through

Gibson's Custom Shop Kirk Hammett Flying V is a classic V, through and through. You'll love the rich midrange character and sustain you get from its mahogany body. The set mahogany neck feels fantastic, thanks to its fast neck shape. It comes topped with a rosewood fingerboard and large frets, for that familiar Gibson feel. The symmetrical headstock makes a perfect platform for the Flying V's Schaller M6 tuners.

Pickups that changed the metal world

Since the earliest days of Metallica, Kirk has used EMG pickups onstage and in the studio. Gibson equipped the Kirk Hammett Flying V with an EMG H humbucker at the neck and a hot EMG 81 humbucker at the bridge position. From mammoth rhythm tones to searing leads, these pickups have produced some of the heaviest music in history.
