Gibson Flying V 2019 – Antique Natural

$ 1379.78

A used Gibson Flying V has arrived, made in 2019. It features original flying V style pickups mounted in the escutcheon, with a stop tailpiece—a model from 2019 that combines the characteristics of both the 60s and 70s Flying V and the original V. Equipped with Burstbucker 2 & 3 pickups, which are relatively high-gain pickups among Burstbuckers, delivering a powerful hard-rocking sound.

The Flying V made a shocking debut in 1958, right in the midst of the space exploration boom. Its design is easily imaginable to be influenced by space exploration. However, the idea of adopting this design for a guitar was truly remarkable. The original Flying V was discontinued after just one year, from 1958 to 1959, with only 98 units produced, perhaps due to its excessive originality. However, it was later reproduced amidst the rise of the hard rock culture and has now become an established regular model.

Given such historical background, one might associate the Flying V with hard rock icons like Michael Schenker and Lenny Kravitz. However, it’s also famous as the guitar used by blues guitarist Albert King. Jimi Hendrix used it too, and surprisingly, it pairs well with blues. It may take some getting used to playing it while seated, but once accustomed, one can play it more stably than any other guitar, which is a surprisingly lesser-known feature of the Flying V. Despite being surprisingly easy to play and versatile across genres, it remains highly recommended for hard rockers.
