The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa 1958 "Amos" Korina Flying-V Outfit is Bonamassa’s fifth custom Epiphone signature model and honors one of his most cherished vintage guitars, the rare “Amos” Flying V, one of the first of only 91 Flying Vs produced in 1958. Featuring Epiphone ProBuckerTM pickups, CTSTM electronics, a LockTone™ ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge, and a 50s style Flying-V case along with a hand-signed certificate of authenticity.

The “Amos” Flying V

Joe Bonamassa is not only one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, but is also recognized as one of the most knowledgeable collectors of vintage guitars. The new Ltd. Ed. 1958 “Amos” Korina Flying-V Outfit is based on Bonamassa’s priceless original Flying-V first purchased by Arthur Amos’s music store in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1958. Bonamassa worked closely with Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville to ensure that every detail of the original was reproduced accurately.
