Epiphone Richie Faulkner Flying-V

The Epiphone Limited Edition Richie Faulkner Flying V Custom Outfit is the premier signature model from the legendary lead guitarist for Judas Priest. It features a classic Flying-V body with EMG active pickups chosen by Faulkner, a Floyd Rose Tremolo bridge and tailpiece with R2 Locking Nut, Grover Rotomatic machine heads, a Thin-C neck profile, and a custom designed gig bag.

When Richie Faulkner joined Judas Priest in 2011, his incredible speed, finesse, and control rejuvenated the pioneering English metal band and helped to introduce them to a new generation of fans. Now as Judas Priest approaches their 50th anniversary, Epiphone welcomes Richie Faulkner to their family of signature guitarists!

The Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V Custom Outfit is a classic Flying-V with a Mahogany body in an Ebony gloss finish. The Mahogany neck has a Thin-C profile and is modeled after Richie’s favorite vintage Flying-V. Both the body top and headstock have multi-layer Black and Pure White binding. The neck is glued to the body with a traditional deep set joint and has a 24.75 scale length and an Ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, a 12” radius, and pearloid "Block" inlays along with a “Falcon" logo on 12th fret. The traditional Flying-V headstock has a 60s era pearloid "Epiphone" logo plus a Judas Priest "Trident" logo. The Floyd Rose "R2" Locking nut (paired with the Floyd Rose Tremolo bridge and tailpiece) allows for incredibly precise tuning and sustain, a hallmark of Faulkner’s style.

EMG Active Pickups

For decades, EMG has been the preferred pickups for players who demand high volume, and sensitivity. The Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V features the classic combo of an EMG-66 (active) humbucker in the neck position and an EMG-57 humbucker (active) in the lead position, both with a Smooth Black Nickel finish. The pickups use Alnico V magnets with steel pole pieces (EMG-57) or ceramic pole pieces (EMG-66) for a tonal range and quality reminiscent of the famous “PAF” style humbuckers found in late 50s Les Pauls, but with added headroom, punch, and definition. Controls included an Epiphone all-metal 3-way pickup selector with black toggle cap and a Master Volume (25K) with a Black "Speed" knob. The 9-volt battery compartment for the EMG pickups is easily accessible on the back of the instrument.

Floyd Rose Tremolo

For years, Richie Faulkner has relied on the legendary Floyd Rose Tremolo 1000-Series bridge and tailpiece combination (along with the Floyd Rose "R2" Locking nut) for rock solid intonation while blazing over the fretboard. The Richie Faulkner Flying-V includes Epiphone’s rock solid nickel hardware including an Epiphone all-metal 1/4" with metal Jack Plate and Grover Rotomatic 18:1 ratio machine heads. A custom Richie Faulkner deluxe gigbag is included along with a Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity in a presentation binder.
