+ shipping

Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1994 Gibson Flying V '67 vintage reissue model in 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and Gibson/Yamano hangtag. Gibson's USA-made guitars distributed via Yamano are often considered among their best, featuring the highest quality woods hand-picked for Gibson's discerning Japanese audience.

A discontinued model with an Ebony gloss nitro lacquer finish, this Flying V boasts solid mahogany construction, loaded with a pair of Gibson's 496R and 500T humbuckers. The 496R produces incredible sustain and cutting power with its ceramic magnet, adding more highs with increased definition and no mud in 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. Weighing 7lbs, this V has been dialed in here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The one-piece mahogany neck has a slender ‘60s-style C-shaped profile carve with modest shoulder and a fast feel, measuring .815" deep at the 1st fret and .900" at the 12th. On the slab rosewood fretboard, the stock medium jumbo frets have good meat, freshly leveled and crowned and exhibiting no wear. The guitar plays cleanly in every register up the 24 3/4" scale with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The nut measures 1 11/16" in width, and on the headstock, the original Gibson Deluxe double line tuning machines with greened tulip buttons turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should. And unlike Gibson's usual serial number sequences, the stamped 94-prefix serial dates this guitar to 1994, something Gibson only did for their 100th anniversary.

All of the electronics work as intended, with the dual humbuckers wired to individual Volume controls and a Master Tone knob. Both humbuckers feature Gibson USA-embossed baseplates, and the harness retains the original trio of CTS 500K pots which date to the 7th week of '94. The hardware has bright chrome plating on the stopbar and Nashville bridge. Plastics are all original, comprising a trio of clean black reflector cap knobs and the three-ply pickguard.

The gloss Ebony nitro lacquer finish exhibits two areas where the finish had reacted to a strand or some other foreign material through to the bare mahogany. This wear has been subsequently buffed smooth with the surrounding finish, and the Ebony nitro lacquer gloss is completely stable. Wear is otherwise limited to some minor marks and light finish scratches on the body as a whole. The gloss on the neck profile is very smooth, with just one shallow scuff on the treble-side behind fret 9 that's smooth to the touch.

The original brown tolex form-fit Gibson USA hardshell case with pink plush interior is included, along with the Gibson/Yamano hangtag.
