The Gibson Flying V has always been one pretty radical guitar, initially launched back in '58 as part of Gibson's attempt to embrace futuristic design, it's been a players favourite ever since. Played by the likes of Lonnie Mack, Albert King and on occasion Hendrix, it's one cool cat. This model is a mash up between a traditional V and Gibson's famous TV models. Back in the '50s, Gibson used Korina to build their Flying V's so never experimented with finish options, by crafting this one from Mahogany it opened up the option to utilise the classic TV finishes we all love!
The Gibson Flying V Mahogany TV honours the rich history of this iconic guitar with some incredible features! The body is crafted from solid Mahogany for a deep, resonant tone, perfect for embracing the heavier side of life; the body is really nicely weighted and balanced.
The Mahogany neck rocks a medium C shape neck profile, 22 frets, a 24.75" scale length and a killer Rosewood fingerboard. Super stable and supremely comfortable, this Gibson Flying V is a real powerhouse.
The defining feature of the Gibson Custom '59 Flying V are the custom wound Gibson Custom Bucker pickups. According to Gibson these are some of the most historically accurate PAF clones on the market, with an ultra-rich harmonic quality; it's as close as you can get to the classic Gibsontone.
Housed in a Gibson hardshell case, this Flying V is definitely one you can't ignore!
