Gibson USA 2018 Flying V, Aged Cherry
New for 2018, GAK are proud to present the new Gibson USA range of electric guitars!
Originally introduced in 1958 as part of Gibson's Modernist series, the Flying V was one a revolution and it's distinct 'V' body shape has become a true icon in the guitar world.
The Gibson USA 2018 Flying V , Aged Cherry is Gibson's latest offering of this classic model. Constructed using a set-neck join from genuine Mahogany for both the body and neck, the result is a tone that is rich in low-mids and sustain. The fretboard is torrefied Granadillo, which is known as 'the wood that sings' and although similar in terms of tone to Rosewood it does have a touch more brightness, which balances well with the Mahogany body and neck. The neck profile is slim taper, perfect for fast shred and high intensity playing!
Pickups are Gibson Burstbucker humbuckers which have the classic bite and growl you would expect on a rock machine like the Flying V!
Includes Gibson fitted hardcase.
