The Flying V with Floyd Rose has a solid mahogany body that provides the blend of warmth, depth and richness. A solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck both enhances resonance and sustain, and is capped with a dark Obeche fingerboard for clarity and durability. The hybrid neck profile blends the rounded '50s shape with Gibson's sleeker SlimTaper profile, starting at .800" at the 1st fret and rising gradually to .850" at the 12th.
A Floyd Rose vibrato unit partnered with a locking nut yields everything from deep divebombs to subtly tremulous wobbles, all with the highest tuning stability available. Floyd Rose originated the high-performance "double-locking" vibrato, and the use of the real deal on the Flying V with Floyd Rose takes this axe right over the top.
A pair of high-gain pickups provide the sonic firepower, a 496R in the neck position and a 500T in the bridge. The 496Rr offers rich, creamy tones with outstanding clarity, while the 500T, one of Gibson's hottest humbucking pickups, provides everything from heavy crunch to wailing lead tones with endless sustain. They deliver all the attack and aggression that modern metal players demand, while achieving sweet tonal nuances when desired.
Each Flying V with Floyd Rose includes a Gibson hardshell case with owner's manual, adjustment literature and Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.

Comments about Gibson Limited Run Flying V with Tremolo Electric Guitar:
First, let me say I love the guitar's sound, tone, and feel. That said, this has to be the worst quality wiring Ive ever seen, and I am saddened by it for Gibson. Out of the box, it was feeding back and humming when the volume was 0 and I took my fingers off the strings. Took it to my guitar tech. He was astonished. No ground, sub-standard wiring. Gutted all the wiring, drilled a hole for the ground, and it's a new guitar (I love it). While it only cost me 80 bucks, I cant believe Gibson would allow such a fine guitar to be so crappily wired. NEVER seen wiring so sub-standard, even on the cheapest of guitars. Anyway, its great now, no thanks to Gibson Mike
