Gibson Custom Shop 1958 Korina Flying V Reissue (Black Pickguard)

Take to the Sky

Gibson Custom

Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity, and attention to detail.

The Gibson Flying V™ was way ahead of its time when it was introduced in 1958, and only 81 were shipped that year, but it has become very popular in the years since then. The classic vintage Flying V features have been carefully recreated in this Historic Reissue model. Featuring an ABR-1 bridge with a string-through korina body, Custombucker pickups, korina neck, Indian rosewood fretboard, two volume and one tone control with CTS® pots and a phone book capacitor, gold hardware, Kluson® tuners, and a 4-ply black pickguard. A historically accurate case is included, with a classic brown exterior and plush pink interior.

The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and exhibits no discernible fretwear. Cosmetically, the guitar exhibits no discernible imperfections beyond the proprietary VOS relicing and a small amount of finish texture at the bass side of the neck at the edge of the fingerboard and a small scuff at the end of the headstock as can be seen in photos. As always, this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
