What we say:
At A Glance:
Upon its release in 1958 the Flying V initially met a lukewarm response, but the ensuing decades have gifted this guitar its rightful place in rock and roll history. Futuristic from the outset, the 1958 Flying V has gone on to be accepted as the axe of choice for anyone looking to make an instant statement, and this Gibson Custom Shop model pays tribute to that original model. The 1958 Mahogany Flying V is a faithful recreation of the original Korina bodied V, with the Korina swapped out for Mahogany and boasting a beautiful Walnut finish that adds a layer of class to this ahead-of-its-time design.
