Mastodon's Bill Kelliher gets an '84 Gibson Flying V

On tour now, Mastodon's Bill Kelliher rode his bike over to Chicago Music Exchange before their gig at the Riv.

Bill was looking for a Gibson Flying V and found this, as Bill described "Hetfieldesque", 1984 White Gibson Flying V.

Bill was on bicycle so couldn't take the V with him so Joel and Marc from Chicago Music Exchange hand delivered The V to him at the Riv later that afternoon.

That evening, after checking out the guitar with fellow Mastodon member Brent Hinds, Bill decided to premier the Flying V during the band's encore performance of "Blood and Thunder".
