Legendary Flying V body
The 2019 Flying V adheres to the timeless V-shape body profile with sleek lines that remove any obstacles from your path. Built using mahogany, the Flying V boasts a weighty feel in the hands, but thanks to same cleverly executed design it the weight is carefully balanced to guarantee a comfortable playing feel. The mahogany generates a hearty midrange energy with generous sustain that lays the foundation for beefy tones. The antique natural finish is protected by a coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which is complemented by a vintage-style 3-ply white pickguard.
Durable mahogany neck
Joined to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which shaped to the lightning fast slim taper profile to maximise playing comfort. The 24.75-inch scale length accentuates warmth from each note to produce sublime tones. The TekToid nut stabilises each string to promote consistency across each string, allowing you to hammer through riffs with confidence. Paired with the neck is a glorious rosewood fingerboard, which bears 22 cryogenically treated low frets with acrylic dot position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius encourages fearless playing by ensuring that elaborate technique is laid down with ease.
The 2019 Flying V is home to a pair of Burstbucker pickups, with a 2 in the neck position and a 3 in the bridge position. Designed to recreate the hallowed tones of Gibson's revered PAF pickups, these beauties deliver vintage-inspired tone that is the stuff of dreams. The Burstbucker 2 produces gorgeous warmth with a subtle bite that makes it perfect for laying down chunky riffs. The Burstbucker 3 runs hotter still and is fantastic for delivering searing leads that soar to the heavens. Whether you're laying down blues/classic rock or pushing its to the limits with hard rock/metal chops, you can rely on this pickup partnership to get the job done. Control comes in the form of stylish black knobs with silver reflectors for independent volume control for each pickup, a master tone pot, and a three-way toggle switch.
The body is home to the hardworking aluminium Nashville tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which anchor each string securely to guarantee a seamless connection that is designed to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is equipped with Grover Rotomatic tuning machines with kidney buttons that work tirelessly to maintain tuning integrity with absolute precision.
