    Product Description

    Celebrated as the most ahead-of-its-time electric guitar ever released, Gibson's Flying V was a true mind blower when it arrived way back in 1958. Adopted early on by only a handful of forward-looking blues and rock'n'roll artists, it became the ultimate badge of honor for rock and metal riffmeisters by the late '60s and early '70s, when the broader scene was finally able to wrap its head around this radical design. Soon, a new wave of major stars were strapping on the iconic axe, from Jimi Hendrix, to Rudolf Schenker, to K.K. Downing, to later heroes like Dave Mustaine and Zakk Wylde.

    Gibson Flying V Traditional Pro Features

    • Bound solid mahogany body with 4% percent reduction in size
    • Thin, fast '60s SlimTaper neck profile
    • Bound Rosewood fingerboard with acrylic dot inlays
    • The powerful ceramic magnets help rule the stage with scorching leads and crunching rhythm tones
    • Grover Tuners
    To capture the spirit of this radical rock and blues weapon, Gibson USA presents the Flying V Traditional Pro. This powerful new model carries full-tilt Flying V styling, with traditional Gibson elegance and refinement, and all the tone and playing feel required by today's demanding guitarist.

    As with all great Gibson guitars, the Flying V Traditional Pro starts with great tonewoods—in this case, a bevy of Grade-A mahogany. A neck made from solid quarter-sawn mahogany and carved in a thin '60s profile is glued into a solid Grade-A mahogany body. The fingerboard is another slice of Grade-A timber, rich-chocolate-brown rosewood in this instance, and carries 22 medium-jumbo frets. Killer looks are assured by a thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, given an added touch of elegance with cream binding around the body and fingerboard, and vintage gold "top hat" control knobs. The time-tested dimensions of a 24 3/4 inch scale length, a 1 11/16 inch nut width, and a 12 inch fingerboard radius ensure that legendary Gibson playability, too.

    To truly capture the tonal superiority of the great original Vs of the late '50s, the Flying V Traditional Pro carries a pair of vintage-style humbucking pickups. The powerful ceramic magnets help rule the stage with scorching leads and crunching rhythm tones. A Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensure a solid anchor and optimum sustain, while a set of high-quality Grover tuners grace the soaring arrow-shaped V headstock. For thundering metal or ripping blues, the Flying V Traditional Pro offers unbeatable tone, and undeniable style.

    Each guitar comes protected in a gig bag, includes owner's manual and adjustment literature, along with Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.

    Poor QC, Not-so-Traditional, Play One Before Buying
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Pros: Excellent playability, lightweight, gorgeous top finish, hotter electronics scream, coil splits are serviceable. Cons: Terrible factory QC - I ordered Ebony, the factory box said Ebony, the guitar was... Red. More Cons: Excess glue on the fingerboard near fret edges, terrible scraping on the top side of the body binding, nut material not filed and edges left sharp, neck joint is slightly deep on the treble side, leaving the alignment awkward, tuning machines installed unevenly on treble side, truss-rod cover installed crooked. Final Opinion: Not a traditional V - very light, very bright, and electronics absolutely scream. Make sure you play one before buying one. Gibson factory QC was horrid. The store model I played was excellent, well made, including the details. My AMS-purchased instrument was sloppy with overlooked errors top to bottom. Terrible experience for my first new Gibson. That said, it is a damn fun guitar to play!

    Love it but can see the cost cutting
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great guitar overall. Balances well, has a good baseline unplugged tone for a lightweight "pointy" guitar. Fit and finish are good where it counts but the backside finish is kinda cheap. More orange peel than glass. This must be where they saved cost. The front is properly finished. I think the woods are high quality though based on the tone and the perfect fret board. The tuners look antiquated but they are solid, tight and hold up the traditional look. The binding is standard Gibson and a little peachy in color, not quite matching the cream on the pickups and rings. The fret ends are actually binding as per Gibson “traditional”. No big deal but they changed this for the HP version. Comes with a gig bag not a case but it’s a plush bag. The new look with the body binding, zebras and no pick guard is a big improvement in my opinion. Plays great, sounds great, looks great. Definitely worth the price and would buy it again.
