Are you ready to ROCK?! Youll need one of these then…1990 Gibson Flying V ‘67 reissue in classic white
Returning the V to its roots in 1990, Gibson chose to use the 1967 iteration as its model with its all mahogany construction and triangular control layout, moving away from the experimentation of the 80s.
Condition wise, this guitar is in great shape. The white has faded slightly, seen clearly when you take off the pickguard, to the classic cream hue that we so often associate with Gibsons of this period. There are a few dings to the finish but nothing too substantial.
The neck is in great shape, the finish is still glossy, the fretboard is unmarked and there is plenty of life left in the original frets.
Hardware does exhibit some very slight wear which again suggests very little use.
Plastics are in great shape as you’d expect. Two pickup rings in black have been added to the factory humbuckers.
Electrically most of the solder joints look to have been undisturbed and both Patent number pickups are present. Shielding paint has been painted in the cavities.
The guitar comes with its correct brown hardshell case with pink lining, the handle is fully intact which is a rare thing, but one latch does not work.
Once you’ve figured out comfortable way to hold the guitar (possible suggestion would be to skip the sitting down and stick it on a strap, one foot up on the monitor) we’re in familiar Gibson territory, especially to those of you who’ve wrangled an SG, albeit with a bit more wood to contend with. Easy access to the whole neck, the Patent Number humbuckers delivering a solid rock tone with the Korina yielding a slightly lighter timbre than its mahogany cousin.
If its good enough for James Hetfield then it should for you. You will be noticed with this around your neck. Grab it before it gets away.
