OVERVIEW

With its wild style, high-octane pickups and speed-friendly neck, this ax is begging to shred.

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. 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. 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. The guitar comes protected in a Gibson hardshell case with a premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.

Quality Control Issue

By JM

from Saint Paul, MN

Comments about Gibson 2017 Flying V T Electric Guitar:

I purchased a new 2017 Model flying V. I don't know if I got a bad one or if Gibson still has QC issues. The serial number is nearly invisible, not embossed at all. The factory stamped "Made in USA 2017 Model" was not visible. I think I could make out the "d" in "made" and "7". Very sloppy. I don't expect this from a Gibson. They have also gone to a grenadillo fretboard which is a substitute to the traditional rosewood/ebony board. Musicians Friend told me if it plays fine it should be alright. I still returned it because I am sure I would have issues if I were ever to sell it. Gibson's quality isn't what it used to be unless you buy a Custom Shop Gibson.
