The Flying V was introduced in the 1950s, a time when Sci-Fi was the flavour of the moment. It's no surprise therefore that the V was met with mixed views - it continues to turn heads and divide opinion to this day. For 2019, Gibson have made a number of tweaks to hint at some of the V's most iconic features.

Body & Neck

The body is solid mahogany, and as with a lot of Gibson's 2019 models, it boasts luxurious resonance and weighty low-end emphasis. The neck is also mahogany, and has a 24.75" scale length with a slim taper profile - comfortable territory for any player.

One of the most notable tweaks in the Gibson 2019 range, however, is the return of Rosewood fretboards. Gibson have explored the use of Granadillo, Pau Ferro and other Rosewood substitutes over the years - but nothing compares to the original! Gibson have kept it simple with no binding and acrylic dot inlays - the no-frills approach.

Pickups & Electronics

Gibson have got a little adventurous on the pickup front. The 2019 Flying V Tribute is armed with 2 x Dirty Fingers+ humbuckers. These notorious high-output pickups aren’t for the faint-hearted; ‘loud’, ‘obnoxious’ and ‘crazy’ are terms that have been used to describe them. We’ll go so far as to say they offer heaps of power and punch, perfect for all manner of distortion & fuzz tones - go nuts!

Hardware

Next up, they've combined their stopbar design with the Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge - this is the tried-and-tested Gibson solid-body formula. Understated in look but efficient and hardy in functionality. The fact the hardware is blacker-than-black gives this instrument a sleek edge.

Black chrome plating, Black top hats, a satin finish and the stealthy pickguard complete the picture - the Flying V has most certainly still got it.
