Gibson Custom Shop 1967 Mahogany Flying V Maestro - Sparkling Burgundy


Airborne Again

When the Flying V debuted in 1958, it was ahead of its time -- about nine years ahead, to be exact. Popular demand helped shape Gibson's decision to reintroduce it in 1967, this time with a sleek new look and a Vibrola tailpiece. The coveted originals command a huge fortune, but this Custom Shop recreation is both accessible and accurate. Every profile, contour and detail has been rendered in exceptional detail for an unforgettable playing and ownership experience.
