Doug Wilkes Breed 77 Flying V

Doug Wilkes shows us the finished Flying V for the band ‘Breed 77’. It’s a real beast fitted with active EMGs and a solid mahogany body, finished in matte black with black flames. Find out more about Breed 77 by visiting their web site at www.breed77.com.

We have just received some feedback from the band and here’s what they had to say… “Danny played the guitar tonight for the full show in Germany, he had only intended to do 1 or 2 songs but after playing it he decided it was the only thing he was gonna play!!!! The guitar sounded incredible and everyone wanted to know what it was, it was a brilliant gig!
