The story of the Flying V stretches back over sixty years. It was 1957 and 1958, and Gibson was aggressively preparing to introduce new future-facing electric guitar models. From a batch of early design concepts, the “Flying V” stood out and was really the only selection that made it through creative discussions relatively unaltered and true-to-form. Gibson had a game-changer on their hands, even if it took a couple of decades to fully take off. We’re glad that the Gibson Flying V surged in popularity, the guitar world is definitely better for it!! The Flying V got its start in the world of blues, with prominent musicians Lonnie Mack and Albert King taking to instrument rather early on. From there, rockers, heavy metal mavens, and guitar maestros brought the Flying V to prominence in the 1970s and 80s, and things have been on a rocket ride upward ever since. The Gibson Flying V has been an inspiration to countless guitarists and can be seen in action all over the world!
The Flying V may look like a simple design at first glance, but that is far, far from the case.
