The Love/Death Baritone Story
Robb Flynn, founder, guitarist and vocalist for Machine Head, worked with Epiphone engineers to create the Epiphone Robb Flynn Love/Death Baritone Flying V, the first of its kind not only for Epiphone but for the Gibson family of brands as well. Robb has won countless awards including the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award presented in 2007. And just like his music, Robb’s baritone design brings a totally original sound to metal and hard rock. “The main reason for having the slightly shorter 27.0” baritone scale is when you tune down to B, it just makes the low definition really tight, especially for palm muting and chunking,” remarks Flynn. “It opens up the sound a lot.” The guitar comes equipped with string gauges (low to high) .58, .42, .32, unwound .18, .13, and .10--the same that Robb uses on stage-- but can also accept heavier gauges.
