🚩SALE • Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

🚩SALE • Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Originally released in 1958 the Flying V introduced a radical and futuristic body shape which became an iconic staple of rock and roll and heavy metal! The Gibson Flying V 2017 T pays tribute to design features that became common place through the 70’s while using alternate woods such as Grenadillo for the fretboard. The Gibson Flying V 2017 T uses a large double wing mahogany body attached to a slim taper mahogany neck, which is very fast playing with the ultimate access to the upper frets due to the body design. There is really no body mass getting in the way of your hand when reaching for the highest notes.

Gibson CS336 Compact Thinline Archtop Electric Burgundy, 2001

Gibson CS336 Compact Thinline Archtop Electric Burgundy, 2001

While it has strong visual similarities to the popular ES-339, the Gibson CS336 compact thinline has significant differences in construction. Instead of using separate materials for the top, back and sides, the CS336 has back and sides carved from a single block of mahogany with a carved, book matched Flame maple top. The Gibson CS-336 came out of the Custom Shop in 2001, five years after the 1996 introduction of the ES-339.

Gibson S1 Solidbody Maple Natural, 1978

Gibson S1 Solidbody Maple Natural, 1978

Here we’re looking at a Gibson S1 built in Nashville TN, with a date of April 19 1978. This guitar is built exclusively of Maple, used for the three-piece body, three-piece neck, and fingerboard. This example is in largely original condition, except for the bridge pickup. Some time ago, the original single coil was removed, put in the case, and replaced with what looks like a Duncan Hot Rails.
