Epiphone Dave Mustaine Flying V Prophecy
Aged Dark Red Burst
DAVE MUSTAINE COLLECTION
The Dave Mustaine Flying V Custom and Dave Mustaine Flying V Prophecy models from Epiphone deliver the level of excellence that an artist of Dave’s stature expects from guitars that bear his name, with powerful, heavy sound and exceptional playing performance in every note.
Mustaine’s Signature V Gets the Prophecy Treatment
Designed to meet the MEGADETH legend’s exacting specifications, the Dave Mustaine Flying V™ Prophecy™ is for players looking to set new standards in speed, sound, and technique. Front and center are a pair of custom-voiced Fishman Fluence® pickups that deliver three distinct tones - a warm "Patent Applied For" vintage humbucker™, a hot modern humbucker, and a shimmering, optimized single-coil sound, all accessed by push/pull Volume and Tone pots. The Dave Mustaine Flying V Prophecy also includes Grover® locking Rotomatic® tuners, Epiphone's LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece for added sustain, and a Graph Tech® nut that boosts harmonic content and increases tuning stability. The mahogany neck boasts an ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and Dave’s custom “D” profile and is built for the kind of speed and precision he’s renowned for.
Take it to the stage, and all eyes will be on you, thanks to the AAA flame maple veneer top and sinister Aged Dark Red Burst finish, complemented by brushed black nickel hardware for the ultimate metal look. Includes a custom hardshell case.
