Gibson Kirk Hammett Flying V


All the Power, Tone, Feel and Mojo of a Legendary Metal Machine

Gibson Kirk Hammett Flying V

From a limited run of 100, this is the ultimate recreation of a Metal Legend's weapon of choice.

Undeniably one of the most influential players in the history of metal, Kirk Hammett has expressed unparalleled power, tone and talent in his nearly 30-year career with Metallica. Listed at #11 in Rolling Stone's "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” Hammett has also proved himself an enduring and multi-dimensional artist, coining timeless riffs and contributing to classic hits year after year in a genre that is more often known for flash-in-the-pan successes and rapid burnouts.

The Kirk Hammett Flying V is powered by Kirk’s choice of an EMG? 81? in the bridge position and an EMG? H? in the neck position. These scorching active pickups yield sizzling lead tones and thick, rich, bluesy tones, respectively, all with unprecedented sustain and clarity. They are routed through the ’70s Flying V’s complement of two independent volume controls and a single master tone, with traditional three-way switch for pickup selection. The chromed hardware is all aged to match the wear of Kirk’s own treasured Flying V, and includes a modified tune-o-matic-style bridge (using Stars Guitars engineering, with permission) with stopbar tailpiece, and Schaller? M6? tuners.
