    Product Description

    A classic, elegant take on a legendary Gibson design! The Flying V is beloved by players of virtually every style thanks to its radical, quirky shape, smokin’ tone and undeniable vibe. This limited edition combines all the great elements we love in a V and wraps it up in a Natural finish and gold hardware which looks great on stage and on the wall!

    Angled Headstock
    The pointed headstock on the Flying V is as typical as it is unique. Like every Gibson headstock, it is carved out of the same piece of mahogany as the neck. It is not a 'glued-on' headstock, and the process takes craftsmanship, time, and effort. But the rewards are worth the effort. The headstock is carefully angled at 17 degrees, which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay in the nut slots. An increase in string pressure also means there is no loss of string vibration between the nut and the tuners, which equals better sustain.

    Solid Mahogany Body
    The most central of all Flying V features is its V-shaped, solid mahogany body. The solid mahogany body provides tone, sustain, and performance. The mahogany goes through the same rigorous selection process as all of Gibson’s woods, and is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson’s team of skilled wood experts before it enters the factories.

    When it comes to guitar electronics, less is definitely better. And that certainly holds true with Gibson’s Flying V. Gibson has chosen to install two volume controls and only one tone switch, which translates into less resistance between the pickup and the actual output. That means you end up with nothing but pure tone from the pickup, and one flat-out screaming rock and roll machine.

    Gibsons 496R and 500T Pickups
    No event is more responsible for dramatically influencing the evolution of popular music than Gibson’s introduction of the double-coil humbucking pickup in 1955. As the musical landscape changed, so did the development of the humbucker pickup. Introduced in the early 1970s, Gibson’s 496R and 500T pickups filled the need for more powerful humbuckers and energized the emergence of hard rock and heavy metal.

    The 496R produces incredible sustain and cutting power with its ceramic magnet, adding more highs with increased definition and no muddiness at all. The 500T is one of Gibson’s most powerful pickups, containing a three ceramic magnet structure, which enables a no-holds-barred rock and roll crunch that never loses its rich combination of enhanced lows and crystal clear highs. This is one of Gibson’s most potent pickup combinations.

    Super high quality, excellent tone, a real rocker.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    The quality of this V is amazing. I love that there is no plastic binding, just all natural beautiful wood- the way the rosewood fretboard is seamless with the mahogany neck is real craftsmanship. I have the 70's reissue V also, which has the '57 classic pickups, the pickups in this one are hotter. I love the old fashioned tuners too. The solid mahogany body gives great tone.
