Gibson USA 2018 Flying V aged Cherry Product Overview by GAK

The Flying V is a testament to Gibson's daring approach to design and innovation. Introduced back in the 1950's the Flying V was a bold leap for Gibson into the world of contemporary design and sci-fi inspired modernism, a 'High-Class Heavy Metal' machine.

The 2018 Flying V's body is constructed of solid mahogany giving it generous resonance and deep low-end. The Neck is also mahogany which is a great joy to many Gibson fans (The same all-mahogany build can be found on many of the Gibson 2018 range). Scale length rocks in at just under 25 inches with a fingerboard top material of Torrefied Granadillo. The fingerboard material is a straight grained Cuban wood hailed as "the wood that sings", to the trained ear, it gives the Flying V a slightly brighter tone than Rosewood.

With a slim taper neck, the Flying V is a petite and light-weight shred and solo machine without compromising on the overall strength and rigidity of the guitar. Combined with the unique pyramid frame of the body, the Flying V can be slung around every which way, on stage or in the studio.

The frets on the 2018 Flying V have been cryogenically treated, a process that distributes the metal in a precisely even way resulting in increased strength, durability and rust resistance.

Emulating that classic tone from the early Gibson PAF (Patent Applied For) pickups, the Flying V is equipped with Burstbucker 2, a pickup similar to that of a '57 classic PAF, brightness paired with plenty of bite. The second Burstbucker 3 pickup contains more windings and is the highest output Burstbucker Gibson produce, providing even more bite whilst still holding onto that classic PAF tone and all the history that comes with it.

The Gibson Flying V features trusted hardware including their Tune-O-Matic bridge and aluminium stop bar. The headstock features silver kidney Grover tuners and a sleek looking white logo plate dressed with the classic script logo. Control knobs on the Flying V are black hats with silver inserts, complimenting the vivid white 4ply pickguard.

Pick up the Gibson 2018 Flying V in a beautiful 'Aged Cherry' gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and get ready to turn some heads. The nitrocellulose finish provides unrivalled gloss to the guitar, beautiful and very much head turning.
