The Gibson Custom M2M Flying V Custom electric guitar brings you the pinnacle of craftsmanship with a made-to-measure instrument hand-built by the talented luthiers of the Gibson Custom Shop. Its highly resonant mahogany body joined to a hand-carved and bookmatched maple top produces a rich, balanced tone. The set mahogany neck has a comfortably rounded profile for hours of smooth, fatigue-free playability. Topped with an ebony fingerboard and acrylic block inlays, it delivers clear, articulate tone for everything from rock riffs to bluesy leads. A pair of BurstBucker Pro humbucking pickups reproduce the warmth and clarity of vintage PAF humbuckers, while CTS potentiometers and Orange Drop capacitors give it authentic 1950s-style wiring. With a vintage-style vibrato tailpiece that adds expressiveness and character to bends and vibratos, the Gibson Custom M2M Flying V Custom electric guitar gives you vintage-inspired sound and feel with modern playability. It includes a certificate of authenticity and premium hard-shell case for storage and transport.

Resonant Mahogany/Maple Body Produces Balanced Tone

The expert luthiers at Gibson Custom Shop crafted the M2M Flying V's body from a solid piece of resonant mahogany, chosen for its balanced tone and singing sustain. They hand-selected an exquisite maple top and meticulously carved and bookmatched it for stunning esthetics. The maple adds crispness and definition to the mahogany's warm, throaty voice. Together, these tonewoods produce a rich, versatile tone that handles overdriven rock tones and clean passages with equal finesse.

Comfortable Rounded Neck Profile Enhances Playability

The Gibson Custom M2M Flying V has a comfortable, rounded neck profile that feels smooth and inviting in your hand. Made from select mahogany, the neck promotes effortless playability along the length of the bound 22-fret ebony fingerboard. Topped with acrylic block inlays, the fingerboard transmits your performance with clarity and articulation. The angled headstock gives you perfect string tension, while the side-mounted output jack keeps your cable out of the way.

BurstBucker Pickups Recreate Vintage Tone

This Gibson Custom Shop Flying V gets its vintage-inspired sound from a pair of BurstBucker Pro humbucking pickups. Modeled after the legendary PAF pickups of the late 1950s, these pickups reproduce that coveted warmth and sweetness. Articulate and clear, they handle overdriven leads and clean passages with aplomb. The bridge BurstBucker Pro has slightly higher output for solos that soar with singing sustain. Together they provide exceptional tonal versatility.

Vintage-Style Hardware Adds Authentic Character

The M2M Flying V's hardware complements its vintage personality perfectly. It has an aluminum vintage-style vibrato tailpiece that adds depth and expression to bends and vibratos. The tailpiece floats freely to enhance resonance and tuning stability. CTS potentiometers and Orange Drop capacitors deliver the authentic tone and responsiveness of a 1950s Gibson. The result is a guitar that looks, sounds and feels just like a prize vintage instrument.
