TESLA's DAVE RUDE Gets Signature Flying V Guitar From EPIPHONE

May 16, 2019

Epiphone, the leader in affordable professional instruments proudly presents the limited-edition Dave Rude Flying V Outfit, the debut Epiphone signature guitar from TESLA's guitarist. Featuring a classic Flying V in an Alpine White finish with a striking red pearloid pickguard, ProBucker humbuckers with coil-splitting, Grover Rotomatic machine heads, jumbo frets, a GraphTech nut, and an EpiLite case. See authorized Epiphone dealers for information.

Since 2006, Rude's spectacular 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," which led to the creation of his new Epiphone.

"The first time I opened the case, I couldn't believe how beautiful it was," says 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!"

Limited-edition Dave Rude Flying V Outfit street price: $799
