SOLD! - 2017 Epiphone 1958 "Amos" Korina Flying V Joe Bonamassa Limited Ed.
“You guys at Epiphone nailed it,” said Bonamassa. “From the moment I opened the case at my house, all I had to do was look at it and I said: ‘Ok, we're good!’ It sounds great. They sound better than the originals!”
Modern blues legend Joe Bonamassa is known for his passionate live performances and dedication to keeping the blues relevant and alive. A prodigy, Joe opened for the legendary B. B. King when he was only 12!
The Limited Edition Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 1958 Amos Korina Flying V is a faithful recreation of Joe's own 1958 Flying V he named "Amos": one of the first of only 91 Flying V's produced in 1958, and first purchased by Arthur Amos’s music store in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1958.
Bonamassa worked closely with Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville to ensure that every detail of the original was reproduced accurately. The Epiphone 1958 "Amos" Korina Flying V features ProBucker pickups, CTS electronics, a LockTone ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge, and a 50's style Flying V case along with a handsigned certificate of authenticity.
“For years I had a photo of Arthur with this very Flying V as my screen saver”, said Bonamassa. “We've determined it's probably one of the first 10 ever made. The ledger stops at the mid 50's and my guitar shipped in May 1958. And it's hand written in the ledger -- Arthur's Music. It was very emotional to find it. To me, this brings the history full circle and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. You did it Epiphone! The new “Amos” is killer!”
