OVERVIEW

Breathtaking looks and soul-pleasing sound.

The Brendon Small Snow Falcon Flying V is packed with classic rock tone, but its dramatic looks are likely to grab you first. The standout feature here is the all-white fingerboard, created by laminating white polymer to a baked-maple ’board. Joined with the high-gloss “snow burst” body finish, white plastics, a back-of-headstock Snow Falcon graphic, and chrome hardware, the result is a look that will get you noticed on any stage. Tone is assured by a pair of Gibson’s acclaimed BurstBucker humbucking pickups, with independent push-pull coil-split switching for optimum sonic versatility. Premium hardware, a sublime playing feel, and that unparalleled Gibson build quality complete the package.

Body and Neck
The Brendon Small Snow Falcon Flying V is styled in the image of the original Flying V, one of the most radical designs ever to have hit the guitar scene. Its body is crafted from solid mahogany, a time-tested tonewood known for its superb resonance and sustain. The glued-in neck is made from solid quarter-sawn mahogany for superior strength, and carved in the fast, slim profile that shredmeisters prefer. Its visually stunning fingerboard is created from white polymer laminated to hard baked maple, with no front position markers to invade its snowy expanse. A white-to-whiter “snow burst” finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer and a Snow Falcon graphic on the back of the headstock complement the unique styling.

Pickups and Electronics
A BurstBucker 1 in the neck position and hotter BurstBucker 2 in the bridge translate the Snow Falcon’s full glory to the masses. These are made in the image of the hallowed Gibson PAF humbuckers of the late 1950s, with genuine Alnico II magnets and 42 AWG wire. The results are thick, rich, throaty tones in the neck position and plenty of crunch and wail in the bridge. They are wired to a single master volume and tone control, each with push-pull switching for independent coil splitting, and a three-way Switchcraft selector.

Hardware and Plastics
High-quality Grover kidney button tuners grace the headstock, while the classic pairing of stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge lock it all down for optimum sustain at the body end. None-more-white plastics include dual speed knobs and switch tip, truss-rod cover with silver hot-stamped Gibson logo, white pickup rings, and uncovered white-bobbin pickups.

Cases and Extras
The Brendon Small Snow Falcon Flying V comes protected in a plush-lined Gibson USA hardshell case with black exterior and Gibson logo. It includes an owner’s manual and adjustment literature.

Comments about Gibson Brendon Small Metalocalypse Snow Falcon Flying V Electric Guitar:

This guitar has amazing feel to it. Has nice clean tone and the action is really fast. Only problem that this guitar has issues with the finish being cracked around the headstock and where the neck is joined to the body so make sure you look at those spots for any cracks

Comments about Gibson Brendon Small Metalocalypse Snow Falcon Flying V Electric Guitar:

Great looking and playing guitar after professional setup. I had a bone nut installed to improve tone! Pickups are weak for metal and low tunings! I had EMG 81 and 85 installed just like Toki Wartooth lol! Nice hardshell case included! Over all great looks, but every guitar I own or ever bought no matter what the cost needed to be setup professionally by a good luthier! Very happy!!! A nice companion to my Gibson Explorer Thunderhorse!!! "Pag"
