About Gibson Flying V
The Gibson Flying V is a rock star's guitar if ever there was one! Since 1958 when the Flying V was released alongside sister model the Explorer, it has been adopted by a long run of exhibitionistic guitarists: Jimi Hendrix, Lenny Kravitz and Michael Schenker have all pledged allegiance to the bold design and thick tone of the V.
Similar to the Explorer in terms of construction, the Flying V's body and neck are made from solid Mahogany and the neck is glued in rather than a bolted or through body style. Two humbuckers, a hard tail bridge and three control knobs (the V has a master tone) matched with a 3 way selector switch give you everything you need to play chunky rhythms and screaming leads. Bold to the point of excessive when it was released, the Flying V is looked on now as a classic heritage design and fits right in with Gibson's other 'shape' guitars.
