Up for sale, a 2014 Edwards E-Flying Freiheit Linked Horizon Revo Model electric guitar in near mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. This epic flying V is a signature model for Japanese musician, Revo, part of the group Linked Horizon, best known for performing the theme song to the animated version of Attack On Titan. Expertly crafted under ESP's Edwards banner in Japan, this guitar features an alder body with intricately carved bird feathers, a three-piece hard maple neck, maple fretboard, and pair of USA-made Seymour Duncan humbuckers with gleaming gold covers and original factory stickers. The pickup compliment includes an SH-4 "JB" in the bridge position and an SH-1N at the neck. The SH-1 neck pickup was designed in the spirit of the original PAF, with sweet singing sustain, wound to deliver full-sounding chords and mid-forward attack. The SH-4 bridge pickup on the other hand is Duncan's original hot-rodded humbucker. The low end is full and powerful, the highs are crisp and detailed, and there’s an upper-midrange bump that adds crunch and chunk to heavy chords that translates to a singing, vocal-like quality when playing single notes or solos. The guitar weighs 7lbs 9oz and has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, accurate intonation, and fast action.
The three-piece hard maple neck has a medium C shaped profile carve with good shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .850” deep at the 1st fret and .880” at the 12th. The maple fretboard features a red flame graphic extending from the nut to the 5th fret, chain inlays, and a Linked Horizon logo at the 12th fret. The medium jumbo fretwire is pristine, and the guitar plays well in all registers up the straight neck with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod. Conforming to parameters familiar to any Gibson enthusiast, the scale length is 24 3/4“, and the carved bone nut measures 1 11/16“ in width. The headstock features a metallic Linked Horizon badge, and the Gotoh tuners turn smoothly and hold pitch well with flawless gold plating and metal tulip buttons.
The electronics function as intended, with the factory-installed USA-made Seymour Duncan humbuckers wired to a three-way pickup selector toggle, individual Volume knobs for each pickup, and a Master Tone control. The stock gold reflector cap knobs and metal switch tip are intact, and the gold hardware shines like new. As a testament to how little this guitar has been played since new, the factory stickers advertising the Seymour Duncans are still intact on the humbucker covers, and the factory protective plastic film is still present on the rear control cavity cover. Cosmetic wear is limited to a few tiny specs in the finish on the treble side body point. The neck profile gloss finish is pristine.
The original hardshell case with custom Linked Horizon logo and fitted interior is included.
