Overview

The 2019 edition of the Gibson Flying V takes it back to the essential core of what makes the "V" what it is. Easily one of the most recognizable, and most imitated, guitars in all of rock, the Flying V made its ambitious debut in 1958, capturing the "retro-future" spirit of the times, but sold fewer than 100 in its first two years. After a brief rebirth in the late '60s, thanks to iconic rock and blues guitarists adopting the guitar, interest flared in the '70s, with hard rock and metal guitarists flocking to the V, both for its look and for its incredible upper fret access. 

Gibson USA Flying V Shaping

A style that's timelessly modern

For 2019, Gibson has gone with the classic all-mahogany construction of the late-'60s version with a natural finish to accentuate the look of the wood. The rosewood fingerboard and SlimTaper neck profile are the essence of fast and smooth that Flying V players love, and the lightweight aluminum tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece stay true to the original. It's a form that is beautiful in its simplicity, still looking futuristic 60 years after its debut.

Over-wound pickups go from classic to modern

The unseen upgrade for the 2019 Flying V is in the electronics. It's loaded with Gibson's renowned BurstBucker pickups. with a BurstBucker 2 in the neck and BurstBucker 3 in the bridge position. These pickups are overwound versions of the classic PAF design, meant to deliver that tone when your volume knob is rolled back a bit. Dime the knob, though, and you'll get a slightly more aggressive, hotter, more modern tone that's suited to heavier rock. 

 

The Flying V is built at Gibson's Nashville factory, using a combination of modern manufacturing tech and careful handwork by experienced master craftsmen for particularly critical jobs, ensuring excellent fit and finish so that each guitar is the best it can be before those familiar Gibson hangtags go on. From finish specialists carefully spraying the thin nitrocellulose lacquer finishes to winding pickups and hand-testing each guitar, Gibson's commitment to quality for the player is second to none.
