The Gibson USA Flying V 2016 HP is the modern incarnation of the original icon of heavy metal and the ultimate marriage of Gibson innovation and tradition.

Gibson USA presents the Flying V 2016 HP. This powerful new model carries full-tilt Flying V styling, with traditional Gibson elegance and refinement, and all the tone and playing feel required by today's demanding guitarist.

As with all great Gibson guitars, the Flying V 2016 HP starts with great tonewoods—in this case, a bevy of mahogany. It features a mahogany body along with a mahogany neck that's carved into a thin, fast SlimTaper profile that'll satisfy even the most discerning shredders. For a solid playing feel, traditional tone, and unparalleled sustain, the neck is capped with a one-piece rosewood fingerboard. A High Performance zero-fret nut ensures superb playability by allowing you to adjust the action to taste while the wider Soloist width and exclusive fast-access heel makes soloing in the upper registers a breeze. Killer looks are assured by a lacquer finish in your choice of Ebony or Wine Red, and given an added touch of elegance with cream binding around the body and fingerboard plus genuine mother-of-pearl dot inlays.

Designed with hard rockers and metal guitarists in mind, the Gibson Flying V 2016 HP carries a pair of powerful Gibson USA Alnico II humbucking pickups. Loaded up with a scorching hot 57 ZB in the neck position and a high-output Burstbucker 3 ZB in the bridge, the Gibson Flying V 2016 HP is capable of dishing out anything from the crunchiest rhythm tones all the way to the hottest searing leads. The electronics have been upgraded with a High Performance sturdier, noiseless toggle switch and a gold-plated multi-contact jack for superior connection.

Gibson has added their revolutionary G-FORCE Tuners to this latest offering of the Flying V, delivering unprecedented automated tuning capabilities. You can now access any preset tuning in just one second, which means you can realistically change tunings in the middle of a song, if needed. What's more, the tuners are now automatically engaged to operate both electronically or individually by hand. This generation of G FORCE now offers low-noise performance, a smoother feel when manual tuning, and better looks.

A contemporary take on a classic hardware combo, the Flying V 2016 HP comes fitted with a stop bar tailpiece along with a Tune-O-Matic bridge featuring lightweight, ultra-strong titanium saddles for optimum performance and tone. Comes complete with a High Performance aluminum hardshell case from Gibson USA.
