This axe was made for one thing ” bold, aggressive, full-tilt rawk. Now it even tunes itself!
With the PowerTune System, this V-Factor X can tune itself precisely and automatically within seconds. It stores personal tuning preferences and makes them available for easy implementation at the push of a button.
The PowerTune System brings a real innovation to the marketplace that promises to banish, once and for all, the tuning problems guitarists and bass players often have. The system consists of 3 components that can automatically tune all strings according to prescribed settings in less than 5 seconds. Major modification of the instrument is no longer required. A control knob that enables the tuning to be programmed replaces the volume control. The player can choose from normal tuning patterns right up to the most diverse range of open tunings. The programmed instructions are implemented by tuners equipped with tiny electric motors. As the motorized tuners adjust the tuning, the pitch of the string is monitored by means of the tune-control bridge. Electrical power for the tuning mechanism is supplied via the guitar strings.
If you're into metal, the Gibson V-Factor X '98 Electric Guitar is the one for you. Check the features: solid mahogany body with premium nitrocellulose finish for super-fat tone, extended neck joint for stability and solid sustain, tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and rosewood fingerboard with premium chrome hardware. A 496R Hot Ceramic pickup in the neck position and a 500T Super Ceramic in the bridge deliver smokin' tone. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
Gibson's original Flying V guitar of 1958 was so far ahead of its time that even the first reissues, almost 10 years later, were only moderately successful.
Finally, in the late '60s and early '70s, progressive rockers embraced the V, and the 1967 version lives on today as the V-Factor.
