Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, 2 Active Humbucking Pickups, and Floyd Rose Tremolo – Pelham Blue

Richie Faulkner’s Trem-equipped Metalizer

When Richie Faulkner joined Judas Priest in 2011, he was credited by critics and bandmates with rejuvenating the metal titans’ sound and spirit. Representing the fretboard wizard’s elegant weapon of choice, the Gibson Richie Faulkner Flying V Custom is a tricked-out metal machine built to storm the halls of Valhalla. This solidbody electric guitar boasts a classic “V”-shaped mahogany body, with an eye-popping finish, a contrasting double pickguard, and wicked-looking multi-ply binding. Its mahogany neck sports a custom profile primed for performance, along with a lightning-fast, ruler-flat 12-inch-radius fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays. Of course, this axe packs plenty of metal-fueled firepower, thanks to a set of signature EMG active humbuckers. You also get a Floyd Rose tremolo for rock-solid pitch pyrotechnics and ultra-stable Grover tuning machines. If you want to fly like “The Falcon,” the Richie Faulkner Flying V Custom is ready for takeoff.

Metal-approved construction

The Richie Faulkner Flying V Custom offers incredible playability due to its 1-piece, custom-profile mahogany neck and 12-inch-radius, 22-fret, bound ebony fingerboard. Moreover, this electric guitar’s mahogany body resonates with as much ferocity as its aggressive “V” shape implies. Multi-ply top and back binding, a contrasting double pickguard, a mother-of-pearl split-diamond headstock inlay, mother-of-pearl block fingerboard inlays, and a custom Falcon 12th-fret inlay are perfect finishing touches.

Tons of heavy metal firepower

If your music demands a sonic flamethrower, the Gibson Richie Faulkner Flying V Custom will exceed your wildest expectations, courtesy of its signature Richie Faulkner Signature EMG active humbuckers. The bridge pickup combines Alnico V magnets and steel pole pieces, yielding a PAF-like character augmented by active electronics for extra headroom, maximum punch, and unparalleled definition and presence. The neck pickup employs ceramic pole pieces, serving up tons of articulate clarity with expansive lows, with a warm-sounding active preamp specially tailored for super-smooth mids.

Dish out dive-bombs at will

The metal-minded guitarists here have waited forever for a legit Flying V with a double-locking trem — a rarity in Gibson’s stable of solidbody electric guitars. Rest assured, this high-performance axe’s recessed Floyd Rose tremolo delivers the dive-bombing goods, enabling you to engage in gratuitous whammy abuse with zero tuning woes.
