Machine Head’s Rob Flynn LOVES his flying Vs [and so does Phil Demmel -Ed]. Long after he is dead and gone, like Jimi and his Strat, or Vai and his Jem, he will be associated with that shape. So if you like Machine Head, it stands to reason that you might also like Flying Vs. But dude. What if… you could combine this two things together?
I think you see where this is going.
Available from the Nuclear Blast website for the price of $649.99, you can get your grubbies on an official Machine Head Epiphone Flying V bundle which includes a copy of their newest CD Bloodstone and Diamonds. AND while supplies last, the bundle will contain stuff used in the making of the album, like picks, strings, drumsticks, drum heads, etc. I’m not sure what you’ll do with these artifacts, but whatever altar you plan to make of them, you’d better get on it fast because I’m sure they will go fast. You can only use so many packs of strings and picks to make an album.
