Up for sale, a 1992 Gibson Flying V '67 vintage reissue model in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. A discontinued model with a Vintage Sunburst gloss nitro lacquer finish, this Flying V hails from an increasingly highly regarded era of Gibson production known colloquially as the "good wood era." Boasting solid mahogany construction, this Flying V is loaded with an early pair of Gibson's 496R and 500T ceramic magnet humbuckers.
The 496R produces incredible sustain and cutting power, offering accentuated highs with increased definition, perfectly tailored for high gain scenarios. The 500T is one of Gibson’s most powerful pickups, containing a three ceramic magnet structure, which enables a no-holds-barred rock and roll crunch that never loses its rich combination of enhanced lows and crystal clear highs. This Flying V weighs only 7lbs, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

Well cared for over 30+ years, the Vintage Sunburst nitro lacquer finish exhibits only some minor dings and faint scratches on the body as a whole, largely relegated to the perimeter and on the back, as well as some very light buckle worming. The smooth gloss finish on the neck profile is immaculate.
The original Gibson USA brown tolex hardshell case with pink plush interior is included.
