Gibson USA Flying V HP 2017 Alpine White CH
Aggressive tones, super premium features
The Flying V is undeniably one of the most reknowned guitars for heavy rock and metal genres, but it is also so much more than that and caters to a broad range of other styles, from jazz to blues, grunge to prog-rock thanks to its super-fast neck, effortless upper-fret access, comfortable shape, and natural sustain.
The Flying V HP takes this radical design even further. It captures every nuance of the original styling, and delivers tones that match its iconic and aggressive looks thanks to a pair of roaring Dirty Fingers + humbuckers, but also adds a touch of class with chrome details and genuine Mother of Pearl inlays, a neck that has been redesigned specifically to cater to the needs of rapid players who demand the smoothest access to the high notes, and a total control over the action.
The guitar comes protected in a Gibson hardshell case with a premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool, and a polishing cloth.
