OVERVIEW

All the classic features available in limited numbers.

Gibson launched the Flying V in 1958. As often happens with forward thinking product, it was met with a resounding yawn. The world was not yet ready for such undisciplined and revolutionary guitar styles. What next, long hair? Rock and Roll in the 1960's changed everything, and the Flying V's position in Rock and Roll and Blues history was established.

This Gibson USA Limited Edition Flying V offers the guitarist all of the features expected from a real Gibson Flying V. A Genuine Mahogany neck, built into the Genuine Mahogany body with a rock solid mortise and tenon neck joint provide the tonal foundation of the Flying V. Genuine Mahogany is the preferred raw material for those seeking warm, rounded, thick acoustic presence. The glued in mortise and tenon neck joint allows neck and body to resonate as one providing additional low and mid range plus extended sustain.

The neck features the famous Gibson SlimTaper design, often thought of in terms of the late 1960's Gibson electric guitar necks. Fast, furious, and comfortable, this neck must be played to fully appreciate what it can do for your playing. The Granadillo fingerboard sports the Gibson 12" radius, excellent for lower actions, lead playing, AND chords up and down the neck. Chrome Grover Kidney Tuners sit above the Graph Tech nut to provide solid and dependable tuning.

Gibson recognized years ago that their original Gibson Humbucker pickups developed at Gibson in 1957 provide the Holy Grail of Humbucking Tones. But at prices exceeding 5 figures for an original set, and very limited availability, thoday's guitarists would be well served if Gibson pulled out the original blueprint drawing of the first Gibson Humbucker pickups, and manufactured them once again.

The result was the Gibson 57 Classic pickup which can be found in the neck pickup of this Flying V. A Gibson 57 Classic Plus (more wire wraps provide increased output which compensates for being so close to the bridge) matches perfectly with the Gibson 57 Classic pickup in the Rhythm position.

Coupled with a Gibson Hardshell case and Gibson's solid Limited Lifetime Warranty, now is the time to get into the Gibson Flying V and become a part of music history, supplies are highly limited
