Up for sale is a Very well made “One of a Kind” Flying V. It doesn’t have brand name at the headstock and truss rod cover so I can’t verify which company produced. I owned many MIJ Flying V but even compared with them, I can say this one is so special.

It features a solid Mahogany body, thick 50s profile Mahogany neck, “Black Burst” Nitro Lacquer finish (thin finish just like old Gibson), 58′ style Flying V string plate. The long neck tenon is deep as pictured. The fretboard has been used very high quality rosewood. Both the body and neck are aging naturally over the years and have numerous weather checking.

The provious owner told me that she is ESP’s custom order made guitar in 80s but no COA or something like that. Most of MIJ Flying V guitars have poly finish to save costs but this one has genuine Nitro finish and doesn’t have cheap bolt-on or scarf-joint construction so I personally guess that it’s a pretty expensive guitar at that time.

You can see the high-res photos. For more details please see the photos!!

Overall it has wear and tear due to the age. The body has some chips and dings around the edges, common paint cracks around the set neck joint, nitro wear around the screws of the pickguard, normal scratches and a few buckle rash on the body. The neck has some minor chips and dings at the edges of the headstock, a few paint chips and minor dings on the backside but the paint is thin so the back of the neck smooth overall. The metal hardware has scratches and some rust but look great.

The neck is Straight and it’s comfortable to play with Low-action(1.3mm/1.7mm@12th fret). Great playability. The truss rod works fine at either directions. The frets are around 60-70% and show some wear but no deep grooves or deadspots.

The weight of the guitar is hefty 3.7kg(8.15lbs). No case included, but will be correctly packed for shipment.

I pack carefully for a long journey!
