The Flying-V was introduced as a mainstay for Epiphone in 1986 when Henry Juszkiewicz, David Berryman and Gary Zebrowski acquired the Epiphone and Gibson guitar companies. There were two short-lived versions of the Flying-V produced in 1983 and 1985; The Model 1140 and the 1985 Flying-V.

The only Epiphone Flying-V currently being produced is the Korina model and the Jeff Waters Annihilation-V.
