Kirk Hammett Flying V Undeniably one of the most influential players in the history of metal, Kirk Hammett has expressed unparalleled power, tone and talent in his nearly 30-year career with Metallica. Listed at #11 in Rolling Stone's "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” Hammett has also proved himself an enduring and multi-dimensional artist, coining timeless riffs and contributing to classic hits year after year in a genre that is more often known for flash-in-the-pan successes and rapid burnouts. Kirk and Metallica have conquered not only the metal world but the entire music universe, becoming members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the process. Throughout this time Kirk has played a 1979 Gibson Flying V. In celebration of his amazing career, Gibson Custom introduces the Kirk Hammett Flying V, a meticulous recreation of Kirk’s own Flying V and trusted companion throughout his playing career with Metallica, the biggest metal band in music history. This tribute to Kirk Hammett’s achievements will be produced in strictly limited numbers: 50 guitars will be aged and signed by the artist himself, with a further 100 guitars aged only.
To recreate the Kirk Hammett Flying V in intricate detail, the acclaimed luthiers at Gibson Custom digitally scanned Kirk’s original 1979 Flying V and precisely measured every significant specification, sparing no effort in the task of reproducing this iconic guitar’s tone, feel and mojo for a limited number of players. The body is crafted from a single piece of resonant mahogany, with a glued-in, three-piece, quarter-sawn mahogany neck. The rosewood fingerboard carries 22 jumbo Jescar frets, as used on Kirk’s own guitar, and pearloid dot inlays. In a similar nod to absolute accuracy, it is topped with a rounded ’70s V headstock with no headstock veneer, and the Gibson logo is engraved on the enlarged, white truss rod cover. The neck profile is carved to the fast but comfortable shape of Kirk’s own guitar, and like many Flying Vs from the ’70s, it has a relatively narrow width of 1.562” at the nut, widening to 1.975” at the 12th fret. A luscious black Ebony finish is hand-sprayed in genuine nitrocellulose lacquer, then hand-aged to mirror the appearance of this legendary guitarist’s own instrument.
The Kirk Hammett Flying V is powered by Kirk’s choice of an EMG™ 81® in the bridge position and an EMG™ H® in the neck position. These scorching active pickups yield sizzling lead tones and thick, rich, bluesy tones, respectively, all with unprecedented sustain and clarity. They are routed through the ’70s Flying V’s complement of two independent volume controls and a single master tone, with traditional three-way switch for pickup selection. The chromed hardware is all aged to match the wear of Kirk’s own treasured Flying V, and includes a modified tune-o-matic-style bridge (using Stars Guitars engineering, with permission) with stopbar tailpiece, and Schaller™ M6® tuners. Each guitar comes protected in a red fur-lined Custom Shop case and includes a leather-bound Certificate of Authenticity, related care and adjustment literature, and is covered by Gibson Custom's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.
Act now to reserve your Kirk Hammett Flying V at your authorized Gibson dealer. Only 150 guitars in total will be made available—50 aged and signed by the artist, 100 aged—and they are bound to go fast.

Recreates three of the most sought-after classic guitar amps, with three gain modes and three mic placements for a total of 27 possible configurations.
You get a truckload of great amps in one convenient stomp box, allowing you to go from clean or crunch to super-fat distortion in a flash.
Operation is simple; just choose the type of amp, from the smooth Calif (Californian), the bright, punchy TWED (Tweed), or the BRIT (British) with its incredible sustain and aggressive mids. Then select the gain mode, CLN (clean), HOT or HI G (high gain). Lastly, choose the mic placement from the three available selections. This feature is a BEHRINGER exclusive, allowing you to place the œvirtual mic in any of three positions:
(OFF X)”At the edge of the speaker cone, producing a smoother, softer sound with less midrange content
(CNTR)”Positioned at the center of the cone, for more upper mids and beefy low-end
(CLSIC)”Slightly in front of the cabinet, for high midrange content with tons of definition
We™ve also included a dedicated Drive control, for adjusting the amount of gain. This control effectively mimics the amount of push applied to the output stage of a tube amplifier, from a gentle nudge to full-out, tube-melting overdrive. Further tone shaping is provided by a highly musical 2-band EQ.
The GDI21 can be used for direct recording output, with speaker simulation or, when used in bypass mode, as a superb active DI box. A 1/4" output jack is provided for connecting to your amp and the gold-plated, balanced XLR connector will link you cleanly to the front of house console. Ground loop problems are nonexistent, thanks to the onboard ground lift switch.
Whether you use it on the stage or for recording, the GDI21 is the ultimate choice for musicians seeking an extremely versatile array of time-tested, classic tones. With the GDI21, you get the sound of three classic guitar amps and a superb DI box, all for the price of a single stomp box!
Articulate in the studio and as ferocious as an angry junkyard dog onstage, the Metropolis beckons you to rule your city...
The Trilogy is complete with our new, or should we say, vintage Metropolis. Forever classic, the chimey EL-84 tone blossoms into an extremely touch sensitive and dynamically expressive voice. Metropolis features a single channel circuit that responds to every nuance of your attack and shift of the guitars controls. When coupled with our optional specially designed combo or extension speaker cabinet the result is incredible projection and richness that must be experienced to be believed.
A kaleidoscope of tonal colors can be coaxed from Metropolis's two distinctly voiced inputs (non-reverb model) and the five position Schizo control. Really a sonic blender control the Schizo switch alters the voicing of the amps Gain and EQ structure and combined with the individual tone, gain and master volume controls many stellar sounds await. Deep 3-D ambience is available from the tube driven reverb option. Optional Reverb "Tone and Drive" controls allow even greater control over the reverbs attack, body and tonal shape.
