Up for sale, a 2008 Gibson Flying V '67 vintage reissue model in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and manual. A discontinued model with a gloss Cherry nitro lacquer finish, this Flying V boasts solid mahogany construction, loaded with 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. At 6lbs 12oz, this V is featherweight, 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 C profile carve yet with round inviting shoulders providing a feel both fast and substantial, measuring .815" deep at the 1st fret and .880" at the 12th. On the dark rosewood fretboard, the stock frets are nigh flawless, retaining their full factory height with well-rounded crowns and plenty of meat. The guitar conforms to traditional Gibson spec with a 1 11/16" wide nut and 24 3/4" scale length. On the headstock, the original Gibson Deluxe tuning machines with greened tulip buttons turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should.

All of the electronics work as intended, with the dual humbuckers wired to individual Volume controls and a Master Tone knob. The chrome hardware and plastic parts are notably clean, and the guitar boasts a bold gloss Cherry nitro lacquer finish, not to be confused with the lesser "Faded" series models. Cosmetic wear is limited to a small spot of very faint buckle rash central to the back, a few light scuffs on the back of the bass side body wing, and a couple additional minor marks on the body as a whole.

The original black tolex Gibson USA hardshell case is included, along with the original manual.
