The Flying V is the original rebel-rousing rocker. Light-years ahead of its time with its "space-age" design when introduced in 1958, this instantly recognizable head-turner melds vintage tones with contemporary performance. Crafted from Grade-A mahogany, with its body cut to radical angles and sporting the classic "arrowhead" headstock, the Flying V exemplifies unparalleled Gibson USA craftsmanship. Sleek and dramatic with dual humbuckers providing a thick gooey sound, popular for Blues, Rock, or Metal, there's nothing understated about the Flying V in either sound or style. This is a guitar that makes a statement.
