The rest is history. Metallica was the most successful band of the nineties and belongs to America's most successful artists of all time. Numerous tours with about 2000 gigs made Metallica to one of the most successful live acts and to one of the most influential metal bands of all time. Up to now, Metallica have sold officially more than 100 million albums, 50 million of these in the USA alone. Four of their albums peaked at No. 1 of the Billboard charts and no other band sells more from its back catalogue to this day. To pay homage to this inimitable career, to his influence over generations of guitar players and to his status as master of the metal guitar, Gibson presents the Kirk Hammett Flying V. The Kirk Hammett Flying V is a meticulously detailed copy of his 1979 Flying V, which provided a loyal service to him throughout his whole career. This model is limited to 100 units only!
