Epiphone Korina Flying V 7-String
One of the finest instruments to come out of asia. Once setup, this super rare 7 string korean V sets the standard among my US and FujiGen 7 string collection in overall playability. Once the p'ups were swapped, it bested many in tone. I wish my gibson V were as nice fit and finish...

TLDR; You won't find many reviews, but if you find one of these for sale, buy it.

MGR/Billy John(Bonham)son's review"Epiphone Flying V (7 string)"

Epiphone Korina Flying V 7-String
Bought from Sheffield Academy Of Sound for a lowlow price of £199! (was £399). I needed a first guitar, this was about as cheap as a shitty squier but 100 times better.

This is an amazing piece of arcitechture. Very well set up, one more string than the average guitar - not so I can play some crummy Slipknot/KoRn nu metal pants, so you can go that extra bit further when soloing! Also, I think I am allowed to call it a real Gibson.

The switches were cheap and one was faulty, but easy to fix. Quite cheap strings.

Very good piece of kit. Not too heavy, even though it has got a bit more body than the average guitar.

Buy this if you see it for less than £300, definitely. The 6 string is as good, but you cant do quite as much on it.

Epiphone Korina Flying V 7-String
It is a skyscraper with the typical characteristics of flying, but with a seventh chord (so bad) and more. the pickups are original epiphone quality pretty average. features very simple: three knobs (two volume, one tone), a three position switch. typical arrangement gibson / epiphone. I put eight microphones (-) and originqlité, the look (+).

UTILIZATION

The neck is very wide and very thick because of the seventh chord. it's a bit confusing to have such a big stick in hand at the beginning ... but you get done quickly, one begins to like it ;-) even so it takes time to get used to the shape of the guitar if you have never played a V-shaped skyscraper like that. not very practical to play seated. there are good sound quickly. the head tends to look, not very balanced all this.

SOUNDS

The sound is very distinctive, very bold and powerful, that even a little drool. ben mics are really not original to the height of the skyscraper. I changed the bridge pickup for sh4 (7-string version, so if that is ...), and I have gained in precision. You need a specific amp and the bass much cash to tame its power. I play the stoner and my fender deluxe was too tight to withstand the shocks of distorted electric juice that I imposed. rockn'roll for the very fat, stoner, it's great as a scraper. although it takes its full extent with overdrive, the clean sound is nice too, especially with the selector in the middle: its a big deal. The violin is a bit of junk, it feels ...

OVERALL OPINION

I play it for over a year now and I love the look seventies and power. cons must be provided by a budget to change the pickups because they are not up to scratch. I like the sounds you can get a 7 string but I am not a fan of Ibanez (7 string in the reference) too oriented metal sound too modern. This scraper is oriented rockn'roll but is just as well for some plans metal. I love him for his character's dog and very special. in the end, I'd say it's a great instrument and exciting sex.
