The Ltd. Ed. Dave Rude Flying V Outfit was designed by Tesla’s legendary guitarist and features a classic Flying V in an Alpine White gloss finish with a red pearloid pickguard, ProBucker™ humbuckers with coil-splitting, Grover Rotomatic™ machine heads, a GraphTech™ nut, an EpiLite™ Case, and a signed Certificate of Authenticity. See your Authorized Epiphone Dealer for information.
Since 2006, Dave Rude’s fiery solos, impeccable rhythm, and charismatic stage presence have inspired Tesla and two generations of loyal fans worldwide. A longtime devotee of Epiphone, Rude originally asked the Nashville R&D team to design a one-off custom Flying V based on his favorite concert t-shirt, which led to the creation of his new Signature model.
“The first time I opened the case, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was,” said Rude about his new Signature Flying V. “The sound, the look, the feel—it’s a dream come true. I had always read about how my favorite artists went back and forth when designing their signature guitars. I thought this would take a long time. But Epiphone made it perfect right out of the box. Thank you!”
