Gibson Flying V Guitar (V-factor X) Review :: Electric Guitars Reviews

If you’re into metal, this is the one for you…bold, aggressive, full-tilt boogie.

Gibson’s original Flying V of 1958 was so far ahead of its time that even the first reissues, almost 10 years later, were only moderately successful. Finally, in the late ’60s and early ’70s, progressive rockers embraced the V, and the 1967 version lives on today as the V-Factor.
This axe was made for one thing… bold, aggressive, full-tilt boogie. If you’re into metal, the Gibson Flying V Electric Guitar (V-factor X) is the one for you. Check the features of these musical instruments: solid mahogany body with premium nitrocellulose finish for super-fat tone, extended neck joint for stability and solid sustain, tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and rosewood fingerboard with premium chrome hardware. A 496R Hot Ceramic pickup in the neck position and a 500T Super Ceramic in the bridge deliver smokin tone. Includes Gibson hardshell case. Time to fly!
