Gibson Flying V2 1980 [S/H]

£1,299.00

Second-hand Gibson Flying V2: 1980, Kalamazoo USA.

In the late 70s, Gibson decided to bring Tim Shaw on board and set about updating some of their iconic designs. One of the fruits of this partnership was this redesigned Flying V which had a limited production through 1979-1981.

The V2 features a ‘sandwich’ walnut/maple contoured body and neck. It has a beautiful ebony fingerboard with pearl dots, and a classy pearl Gibson logo is inlaid into the headstock. The guitar has gold hardware throughout and a brass nut.

Product Description

Pickups are the unique noiseless ‘boomerang’ pickups designed by Bill Lawrence and only ever used on this model. They have a unique ‘stratish’ tone. Controls are volume/tone/tone.

This particular guitar has had a replacement bridge fitted: a top-notch Kahler tremolo with locking nut. The bridge has been installed very well: everything stays in tune and you can play merry hell on the whammy bar.

Comes with original hard case.

We’ve set it up with a set of GHS David Gilmour strings: it plays beautifully and sounds great.


Condition:

There are a few marks here and there, mostly minor dings, and scuffs to the tip of the headstock. There is a small patch on the back of the instrument where it appears the lacquer has reacted to something. I’ve tried to show everything in the photographs. Fingerboard is in good condition and there’s a lot of life left in the frets.

The case has some wear and tear, but is still functional. Two latches are broken.
