Description

Details

The Gibson Flying V has long been an iconic symbol of rock music, played by musicians such as Jimi Hendrix and Dave Davies of The Kinks. With its instantly recognisable shape and style, Gibson have revamped the Flying V with a version for 2018, taking primary features from the original 1958 model as its foundation. Kitted out with Burstbucker pickups to deliver a rich, heavy rock tone, the 2018 Flying V powers out like never before.

Classic V-shape design

The 2018 version of the legendary Flying V has a body crafted 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. A thin profile allows the Flying V to be held close to the body and provides exceptional comfort.

Smooth and slim neck

Married 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 2018 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 with ease.

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.

Burstbucker power

Gibson have chosen an incredibly powerful, robust pair of ceramic humbucker pickups to give the Flying V some real clout. Burstbucker pickups are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. Ideal for hard, heavy rock but also versatile enough in many other musical genres, the Burstbucker 2 and 3 combo provide incredible power and tone.

Gibson have included two Volume controls plus a Master Tone knob joined by a 3-way toggle pickup switch for quick and easy manipulation of timbre.

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 antique cherry finish in contrast with 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 case and an accessory kit so you can get set-up and playing immediately.
