Two New Flying Vs

Gibson USA introduces the Flying V History and the Flying V 120   25-Jun-14

As part of its 120th Anniversary celebrations, Gibson USA has introduced two limited run Flying Vs - the Flying V History and the Flying V 120. Here's what  they have to say about each...

The Flying V History (above) takes off with a Grade-A mahogany body cut to the radical angles of the original, but with thinner dimensions for enhanced playing comfort. The glued-in Grade-A mahogany neck is carved to the fast, slim profile preferred by so many rockers, with a bound one-piece Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with frets over binding and dot inlays. The "arrowhead" headstock is slimmed down, with a white plastic truss-rod cover with Gibson logo, and there's a commemorative "120th Anniversary" banner at the 12th fret. A '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbucker, neck and bridge, provide all the grind and wail you need, with sultry mellow tones too when required, wired through individual volume controls and a master tone with "witch hat" knobs. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece partner with Grover™ Kidney Button tuners for smooth, efficient performance. The Flying V History comes in Aged Cherry finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, protected by an elegant brown hardshell case.





The Flying V 120 takes off with a select mahogany body cut to the legendary space-aged angles of the original. The glued-in mahogany neck is carved to the fast, slim profile that so many rockers love, with a bound one-piece Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with frets over binding and dot inlays. The traditional "arrowhead" headstock has a white plastic truss-rod cover with Gibson logo, and there's a commemorative "120th Anniversary" banner at the 12th fret. Vintage tones with contemporary performance come from Alnico V Burst Bucker Pro Rhythm and Lead pickups, made in the image of the original PAF humbuckers with mismatched coils for characteristic bite and depth. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece partner with Grover™ Kidney Button tuners for smooth, efficient performance. The Flying V 120 comes in a sleek Ebony finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, all protected by an elegant brown hardshell case.
