I came across this what I believe is an epi flying V. It came with the epi V case but a previous owner seems to have sanded it all down and erased any sign of a serial number or logo. Was wondering if any have seen this type before? It has all gold hardware, with Grover tuners, a non typical pickguard layout of 1 volume, one switch, and one tone all in a straight line that sets it apart from typical "67 reissues. The electronics seem to be epiphone however. The pickups are some after market cheapie EMGs I believe.
I'm planning on converting this to the typical 67 layout (getting a custom pickguard since no others seem to fit) and add a set of probuckers with new electronics. However, I'm thinking about turning the input jack into an extra tone since the previous owner also cut a whole in the bottom edge and moved the input jack anyway. I'm thinking this is the best way to use/hide the hole, will give the V the more traditional look, but will have two volume two tone like a Les Paul.
What do you all think?
