I've had the V itch for quite a while. I definitely wanted an Epi. I had looked at the Brent Hinds model and it's a great guitar but I already have a silver burst SG. I looked at the Faulkner model too but not really my style. I had almost pulled the trigger on the Epi non sig korina V but kept telling myself to hold off, I'm glad I did. I don't normally go for signature models but this particular V checked all the boxes for me. I got it for considerably lower than MSRP due to a very small nick in the case, the guitar itself is flawless. Its very light weight and the stock pups sound great to me. I will be replacing the strings tonight, also conditioning the fretboard and taking a look under the pups. Anyway on to the pics. Ninja Edit:I am not fond of the white jack plate but so far not having any luck finding a black 3 ply to match the pick guard, not without buying a complete pick guard set anyway. If anyone knows a place I would very much appreciate it. I am gonna de-bonamassafy it a bit.
