With the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) expo recently rolling through the Anaheim Convention Centre in California, there was much anticipation amongst metal fans around the Epiphone display for the unveiling of a particular Machine Head axeman’s new signature guitar.
Frontman Rob Flynn’s multi-year signature deal with Gibson/Epiphone includes the release of the signature “Love Death” baritone scale Flying V, adorned with many a custom graphic and high end parts.
The Baritone V features six Grover machine heads on the painted headstock, and Flynn’s custom heart-skull pearl inlays down the length of the 24-fret rosewood neck. The logo is then featured as a large, eye-popping, full bodied decal wrapping around a tune-o-matic bridge and a pair of active EMG humbuckers, as displayed by Dr. Epiphone below, in an excerpt from Total Guitar’s coverage at the expo.
Also available from Epiphone is a matching flight case adorned with the same “Love Death” heart-skull decal and black and white burst, all available at some point in 2011.
