    The Sleekest Rocker on the Planet, Revamped and Ready to Rumble

    The Flying V Traditional Pro starts with great tonewoods—in this case, a bevy of Grade-A mahogany. A neck made from solid quarter-sawn mahogany and carved in a thin '60s profile is glued into a solid Grade-A mahogany body. The fingerboard is another slice of Grade-A timber, rich-chocolate-brown rosewood in this instance, and carries 22 medium-jumbo frets. Killer looks are assured by a thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish in your choice of Ebony Black or Wine Red, given an added touch of elegance with cream binding around the body and fingerboard, and vintage gold "top hat" control knobs. The time-tested dimensions of a 24 3/4" scale length, a 1 11/16" nut width, and a 12" fingerboard radius ensure that legendary Gibson playability, too.

    To truly capture the tonal superiority of the great original Vs of the late '50s, the Flying V Traditional Pro carries a pair of vintage-style humbucking pickups. A '57 Classic in the neck position delivers warm throaty tones with plenty of clarity, and a slightly hotter BurstBucker 3 in the bridge offers searing crunch and soaring lead tones. Two of Gibson USA's most popular humbuckers—both installed uncovered with exposed "zebra coil" bobbins—these units are made with genuine Alnico II magnets and wound with 42 AWG wire, just like the legendary PAFs of the late '50s and early '60s, and offer a blend of richness and clarity that few pickups can match today. A Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensure a solid anchor and optimum sustain, while a set of high-quality TonePros® Vintage Kluson® button tuners grace the soaring arrow-shaped V headstock. For thundering metal or ripping blues, the Flying V Traditional Pro offers unbeatable tone, and undeniable style.

    Each guitar comes protected in a plush-lined hardshell case with black exterior, and includes owner's manual and adjustment literature, along with Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.

    Comments about Gibson Flying V Traditional Pro Electric Guitar:

    This s a sweet guitar. The neck is very comfortable, with a thin profile. The pickups are wonderful, specially the BB3 in the bridge. Great rock sound!

    I don't do a lot of coil splitting, but has a good sound, with somewhat 60% of volume cut.

    The only problem: a slight fret buzz in the low E string, just needed some bridge adjustment.

    So far, an awesome guitar!
