A revolutionary rocker ever since its introduction in the late ‰ۡó»50s, the Flying V still makes a major style statement today. As part of its 120th Anniversary celebrations, Gibson USA introduces the Limited Run Flying V History, with all the iconic looks of the original plus a few clever twists on the form. A thinner body lightens the load, while a slightly smaller ‰ۡÌÝ?arrowhead‰ۡó? headstock balances out the top end. Add two of Gibson‰ۡó»s most popular humbucking pickups, time-tested tonewoods and unparalleled Gibson USA craftsmanship‰ۡÌÝÌÒall at an unbeatable price‰ۡÌÝÌÒand the Flying V History is ready to launch.
The Flying V History takes off with a Grade-A mahogany body cut to the radical angles of the original, but with thinner dimensions for enhanced playing comfort. The glued-in Grade-A mahogany neck is carved to the fast, slim profile preferred by so many rockers, with a bound one-piece Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with frets over binding and dot inlays. The ‰ۡÌÝ?arrowhead‰ۡó? headstock is slimmed down, with a white plastic truss-rod cover with Gibson logo, and there‰ۡó»s a commemorative ‰ۡÌÝ?120th Anniversary‰ۡó? banner at the 12th fret. A ‰ۡó»57 Classic and ‰ۡó»57 Classic Plus humbucker, neck and bridge, provide all the grind and wail you need, with sultry mellow tones too when required, wired through individual volume controls and a master tone with ‰ۡÌÝ?witch hat‰ۡó? knobs. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece partner with Grover‰̣ۡå¢ Kidney Button tuners for smooth, efficient performance. The Flying V History comes in Aged Cherry finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, protected by an elegant brown hardshell case.
