1980 Gibson Flying V


Located in Seattle


How cool is this? Get your shred on with this 1980 Gibson Flying V in its original and rare Ember Red finish. Gibson V’s from this era are becoming harder and harder to find, especially an original example. This particular guitar retains all its original parts including the original patent stamped Gibson humbuckers. It was refretted long ago by Mike Lull here in Bellevue, WA and the frets are in excellent shape. The electronics all appear original with the pots oddly dating to the 36th week of 1975. This V has a lot of great things going for it and was just setup in house by our tech, it rips! With that said, it has a strong smell of nicotine smoke, I imagine from years and years of use in a smokers home and on stage. We did what we could to remove some of it and I imagine if someone had a good amount of time to dedicate to removing it could get it mostly out.
