Description

Details

The Gibson Flying V has long been associated with rock music, played by such music icons as Jimi Hendrix and Dave Davies of The Kinks. With its distinct shape and style, Gibson have revamped the Flying V with a version for 2017, taking primary features from the original 1958 model as its foundation. Kitted out with Dirty Fingers pickups to deliver a classic, heavy rock tone, the 2017 Flying V sounds as good as ever.

V-SHAPE BODY

The 2017 version of the legendary Flying V has a body constructed entirely from mahogany, hand-chosen by the expert luthiers at Gibson USA to improve the guitar's ability to resonate freely. The body has a lightweight feel designed to appeal to the masses.

NECK

Firmly fitted to the Flying V body is a smooth mahogany neck, the tonewood of choice for Gibson. The neck is fitted using the traditional Mortis and Tenon joint using the extra tough Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. The neck of a Flying V is known for its ultra fast Slim Taper profile, and the 2017 model retains this advantageous feature. Due to the radical shape of the Flying V it allows for full access to the upper frets of the neck.

Aboard the neck is a thicker, 12 inch radius grenadillo fingerboard with 22 frets on offer. Gibson have selected a thicker tonewood for the fingerboard due to its rich sonic contribution to the modern Flying V. The light shade of the fingerboard is complemented by white dot inlays to guide you. The neck also features a Tektoid nut which lubricates itself, consequently improving sustain and ensuring accuracy when returning to pitch.

DIRTY FINGERS

Gibson have chosen an incredibly powerful, robust pair of ceramic humbucker pickups to give the Flying V some real clout. Dirty Fingers humbucker pickups are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. Gibson may well have their most powerful set of pickups fitted to this Flying V, ideal for hard, heavy rock but versatile enough in many other musical genres.

Gibson have included two Volume controls plus a Master Tone knob joined by a 3-way toggle pickup switch.

HARDWARE AND FINISH

For reliable, precise tuning, Gibson have employed Grover kidney-button tuners on the headstock. The tuners are constructed from a lightweight Zamak material and have a 14:01 gear ratio.

A traditional chrome-plated aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge and an aluminium Stop Bar tailpiece is fitted to the body ensuring enhanced sustain and resonance.

Stand-out visual appointments include the protective 3-ply white pickguard, the silver Gibson logo on the arrowhead and black top hat control knobs with silver inserts. To keep the guitar in the best possible condition, Gibson include a Flying V hard shell brown case, a set of handy tools plus a Gibson USA Owner's Manual.
