A Rock Icon, Back and Badder Than Ever.

Celebrated as the most ahead-of-its-time electric guitar ever released, Gibson's Flying V was a true mind blower when it arrived way back in 1958. Adopted early on by only a handful of forward-looking blues and rock'n'roll artists—Lonnie Mack, Dave Davies, and Albert King among them—it became the ultimate badge of honor for rock and metal riffmeisters by the late '60s and early '70s, when the broader scene was finally able to wrap its head around this radical design. Soon, a new wave of major stars were strapping on the iconic axe, from Jimi Hendrix, to Rudolf Schenker, to K.K. Downing, to later heroes like Dave Mustaine and Zakk Wylde. To capture the spirit of this radical rock and blues weapon, Gibson USA presents the Flying V 2016 T. 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 T starts with great tonewoods—in this case, a bevy of mahogany. The mahogany neck made is carved into a thin, fast SlimTaper profile that'll satisfy even the most discerning shredders. For a solid playing feel, traditional tone, and unparalelled sustain, the neck is capped with a thicker one-piece rosewood fingerboard. The time-tested dimensions of a 1-11/16" neck width at the nut ensures that legendary Gibson playability. 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.

Designed with hard rockers and metal guitarists in mind, the Gibson Flying V 2016 T carries a pair of powerful Gibson USA humbucking pickups. Loaded up with a scorching hot ceramic 496R in the neck position and a high-output 500T super ceramic in the bridge, the Gibson Flying V 2016 T is capable of dishing out anything from the crunchiest rhythm tones all the way to the hottest searing leads. A Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensure a solid anchor and optimum sustain, while a set of high-quality vintage-style tuners grace the soaring arrow-shaped V headstock. For thundering metal or ripping blues, the Flying V 2016 T offers unbeatable tone, and undeniable style. Comes complete with a protective gig bag.

Love this Flying Vee

was surprised when I got this guitar. Is not stated that it has coil tapping, but it does. Used it at a gig Saturday, and the coil tapping allows me to get sounds better suited for certain songs. I lowered the action slightly and put on Ernie Ball extra slinkys and it frets like a dream. No fret buzz anywhere on the neck. It stays in tune. I use a B52 AT100 head with a 4X12 Marshall cab and this baby sounds great thru it. This guitar is a keeper. Just with it came with a hard shell case.
