Gibson / Custom Shop Flying V 1967 / 2022 / Sparkling Burgundy / Guitar For Sale
Super Cool 1967 Reissue Flying V in Sparkle Finish!
1967 is an important year for the Flying V. It was the first year since 1959 that Gibson started producing the model again, this time in Mahogany and with that characteristic Maestro Vibrola bridge. This Custom Shop Flying V is a loving homage to that rebirth!
The looks of this über cool Custom Shop Flying V actually speak for themselves, but let's start with the color and finish. Sparkling Burgundy has been chosen here, finished with a fine, thin nitrocellulose lacquer that immediately feels vintage and ages just as beautifully as the original. Partly because of this, the neck of this Flying V also feels very familiar and played in. In terms of sound, this Custom Shop also comes frighteningly close to the original thanks to the 2 Custombucker Alnico III pickups. You'll be amazed at how many ways you can go with this Flying V; whether you play rock, blues or jazz, the creamy sound is dripping from this guitar. A great detail about the design of this Flying V is that the pickups are relatively close to the guitar's center of gravity, resulting in extra sustain. This Custom Shop 1967 Flying V comes with a hard case and COA.
