Gibson 2014 Anniversary Flying V
The Flying V is the original rebel-rousing rocker, way ahead of its time in the late ’50s and still a major style statement today. Following in the footsteps of this iconic guitar, the Limited Run Flying V 120 is the perfect candidate to join in Gibson USA’s 120th Anniversary celebrations. Combining time-tested tonewoods, versatile pickups, and unparalleled Gibson USA craftsmanship at an unbeatable price, the Flying V 120 launches your music into the stratosphere, while making the perfect ticket to the party for collector and player alike.
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 sleek Heritage Cherry, Ebony and Classic White, finished in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, all protected by an elegant brown hardshell case.
