Metal Rock Films will release a new documentary next month, about the history of one of rock’s most well-known guitars.

Flying V is scheduled for release Sept. 11 on DVD.  The documentary, which is part of the studio’s Inside Metal documentary series, focues on the history of the Flying V style guitar.  The documentary was produced and directed by Peter Hansen and co-produced by Michael Denner.

The program tells the guitar’s history through interviews with metal luminaries, such as James Hetfield (Metallica), Kerry King (Slayer), and Michael Schenker (Scorpions, UFO, Michael Schenker Group, Michael Schenker Fest).

The documentary follows the creation of the Flying V in the 1950s and follows its evolution through the decades, including its use by guitarists in a variety of musical styles, not just metal.  The documentary’s trailer is streaming here.

Flying V is available to order through Amazon and MVD Entertainment Group.
