Heavy Metal players are drawn to the Flying V, and the 2016 Flying V Pro T has everything, including renowned tone, to make it a bestseller. Its solid mahogany body is sprayed with a nitrocellulose finish that lets each sonic wave vibrate fully. The unique body design results in unmatched neck access to the upper register.
Gibson's popular SlimTaper neck profile answers your need for speed and makes shredding easier and faster. A thicker one-piece rosewood fretboard adds warmth and sustain. The addition of a self-lubricating Graph Tech nut also helps with sustain while returning strings to pitch no matter how far you bend them. Electronics feature a '57 Classic and BurstBucker 3 hum bucker to add more fuel to the fire in your leads and more gnarly crunch when you're working the rhythm sections.
The 2016 Flying V Pro T has a Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece and comes complete with snug-fitting gig bag. Join the roster of pro metal players who know what it takes to get the job done.
