The first Gibson Flying V models were released in small numbers in 1958, and have become something of a holy grail among guitar collectors. The Flying V has been reissued by Gibson in a variety of styles from the late 1960's onwards, and this 1975 Flying V is an excellent example of an affordable vintage V with its roots firmly in those original models.
Manufactured in this spec between 1975 and 1981, this 1975 Flying V features a Mahogany neck and body, along with a slim, quick playing neck and unbound rosewood fretboard . This guitar is fitted with the original Patent No. pickups, with a pat no. lacquered sticker variation in the bridge position and an embossed pat no. variation in the neck. This features its original wire ABR-1 bridge and tailpiece, along with the original double line tuners, knobs and pick guard.. The pots are original and date to the 12th week of 1974 (137 7412). This guitar also includes its original Gibson case.
This guitar has been given a full service & setup by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
