The Epiphone Dave Rude Flying V Outfit was designed in collaboration with (you've guessed it), Tesla guitarist, Dave Rude. Featuring a striking, classic Flying V body shape and finished in a sleek white gloss finish - embossed with a red pearloid pickguard - this guitar stands out just as much as the player himself. It's modelled on the custom Epiphone that he's known for using when he plays live.
Style & Swagger
Consisting of a okoume body, the instrument projects plenty of warm mid-range punch and sustain. This has been coupled with a neck of the same material, which sits comfortably in your hands while you play. A hard maple fingerboard compliments the neck, characterised by enhanced definition of every single note that you play.
ProBucker Humbuckers have been incorporated in both the neck and bridge positions. The sonic result is excellent, well-rounded classic tones, with sweet, rich cleans and crunchy, biting lead sounds. Thanks to the onboard controls, you'll be able to dial in your preferred sound too. A master tone and toggle switch, combined with two volume knobs ensure you can craft and tailor to your hearts content.
