The Gibson 2019 Flying V Tribute Electric Guitar in Satin Ebony pairs classic style with modern appointments to create a fearsome model that is suited to both stage and studio work. The Flying V has been the model of choice for guitarists across a wide range of genres from blues to heavy metal, and the 2019 Flying V Tribute invokes that same unapologetically cool spirit that has won over so many throughout the decades. Each model is supplied with a Gibson designer series gigbag to get you out and about in style, whilst a Gibson accessory kit allows you to keep it in pristine condition.
Legendary Flying V body
The 2019 Flying V Tribute is shaped to the classic V-shaped design that we've all come to admire and respect. The sleek lines of the body yield unparalleled access to the upper frets, whilst retaining a substantial feel in the hands. Mahogany has been employed as the tonewood of choice, which produces a substantial midrange energy delivered with enviable sustain. The visually striking ebony finish is protected by a coating of satin nitrocellulose lacquer, which not only preserves the paintwork but promotes a lightning fast feel in the process. A 5-ply black pickguard complements the brooding black finish perfectly.
Stable mahogany neck
Connected to the body is a sturdy yet responsive mahogany neck, which is carved to the lightning fast slim taper profile to promote smooth performance. The generous 24.75-inch scale length encourages a punchy yet warm character from every note. 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 luxurious 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.
Dirty Fingers + pickups
The 2019 Flying V Tribute is fitted with a pair of ceramic Dirty Fingers + pickups between the neck and bridge positions. The Rhythm pickup in the neck position generates a hearty energy that is ideal for bluesy riffs and solos. The Lead pickup in the bridge is unashamedly brash and takes no prisoners, making it perfect for those who want to tear through some hard rock and metal without any fuss. 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 Nashville tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which work tirelessly to 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.
