Recreated Hendrix's Psychedelic Flying V Guitar

Jimi has been honored again with this recreation of the Flying V. Nobody played the V like Jimi, many people don't realize Jimi even played the Flying V. Here is the article:

Legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix personally painted a psychedelic design on his 1967 Flying V, and Epiphone has painstakingly recreated Hendrix's artwork on a new, limited-edition signature Flying V.

"Jimi Hendrix loved his Flying V's and owned three of them," said Jim "Epi" Rosenberg, president of Epiphone. "We've replicated the most famous and recognizable one, which he used on his 1967 and '68 tours, including an appearance on French television in October 1967. His psychedelic artwork makes a striking impression that perfectly represents the era, and we're very proud to offer this part of the 'experience' to Hendrix fans."
