Since its inception in 1958, Gibson's Flying V has become an iconic piece of rock history, thanks to its unmistakable body shape and rich, powerful tone. From The Kinks' Dave Davies to Judas Priest's Richie Faulkner to the legendary Jimi Hendrix, the Flying V has made its way through the hands of music's most prominent guitarists.
This 1958 Korina Flying V Reissue is a remarkably spot-on recreation of the original '58 Flying V Gibson brought into the world over half a century ago. Just like the original, this '58 Flying V Reissue is built with a stunning string-through Korina body in a natural finish that allows the beautiful wood grain to really shine through. Fit with historically accurate aged gold Kluson tuners, an ABR-1 bridge, and a black 4-ply pickguard, the hardware on this guitar is an accurate recreation of the hardware on the original '58 Flying V. This reissue has a superbly comfortable Korina neck that sports a beautiful 1-piece Indian rosewood fingerboard, and it lives up to the standards Gibson fans would expect from a genuine '58 Flying V. Aside from the incredibly precise detail that makes this '58 Flying V Reissue look and feel authentic, the tone that comes from the set of Custombucker pickups brings you right back to the golden era of Gibson. Sweet, rich, and nostalgic, these pickups pump out an astoundingly authentic tone.
Gibson scrutinized every detail of this 1958 Flying V Reissue to ensure that it looks, feels, sounds, and plays just the same as the first Flying V to ever leave their shop. The pinnacle of period-correctness and historical integrity, this guitar is the closest Gibson has ever come to remaking their original 1958 Flying V.
