2017 Gibson Flying V T  Electric Guitar

The Flying V is a rock and blues icon played by legendary artists, such as Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, Lonnie Mack, Dave Davies and others, with a radical design that was way ahead of its time when first released in 1958. This Gibson Flying V T 2017 Ebony Electric Guitar captures every nuance of the original styling, and delivers tones that match its iconic and aggressive looks, thanks to a pair of roaring Dirty Fingers humbuckers, which are among the most powerful pickups Gibson has ever produced. While it is widely used in heavy rock and metal, the Gibson Flying V T 2017 Ebony Electric Guitar is much more than that, too. Its super-fast neck, effortless upper-fret access, comfortable shape and natural sustain also making it perfect for a broad range of other styles, from jazz to blues, grunge to prog-rock. The guitar comes protected in a Gibson hardshell case with a premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.

Aggressive Tones, Legendary Looks

The Flying V is a rock and blues icon played by legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, Lonnie Mack, Dave Davies and others, with a radical design that was way ahead of its time when first released in 1958. While it is widely used in heavy rock and metal, the Flying V 2017 T is much more than that, too. Its super-fast neck, effortless upper-fret access, comfortable shape, and natural sustain also making it perfect for a broad range of other styles, from jazz to blues, grunge to prog-rock.

Dirty Fingers Humbuckers Deliver Iconic & Aggressive Tones

The Flying V 2017 T captures every nuance of the original styling, and delivers tones that match its iconic and aggressive looks thanks to a pair of roaring Dirty Fingers humbuckers, which are among the most powerful pickups Gibson has ever produced. . These Gibson pickups are extreme-output units designed for more of everything, and deliver the critical union between power and dirt which is perfect for heavy rock and metal. Each pickup is equipped with a 4-conductor lead and is wax-potted to eliminate undesirable microphonic feedback. Controls include two volume, one master tone, along with a toggle switch for simplified control.

TekToid Nut For an Enhanced Tone

The 2017 Flying V T features a TekToid graphite nut, which offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range perfect for a rich and detailed tone. TekToid Graphite is the best high-tech cure for eliminating undesirable friction within the nut, which can cause tuning problems. It is the ideal choice for a guitar nut, as it has excellent conductive qualities, which overall benefit a guitar’s tone and sustain.

Chrome Tune-O-Matic Bridge & Stop Bar

As with many of the new Gibson models, the 2017 Flying V T also features an Aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge. This type of bridge is an extremely popular fixed bridge due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge, as you simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action, and screw the bridge saddles in or out to achieve perfect intonation.

Added Accessories

As well as this stunning instrument, the Gibson Flying V T is complete with a Classic Gibson Flying V hardshell case, along with a premium leather strap, Gibson’s multi-tool, and a polishing cloth, providing you with the perfect package for any level of player.
