The Gibson Flying V ™ is considered an iconic design by modern guitarists. It was first introduced in 1958, and in the following decades, it became increasingly popular, especially with hard rock and metal guitarists. Formany of them, the 1980s is when the model really hit its stride. The Gibson 80s Flying V is based on the highly sought-after 1984 models. It features a fast-playing Slim Taper mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard. The iconically-shaped mahogany body is outfitted with new 80s Tribute pickups that accurately capture the unique fat-toned sound and rich sustain of the models from that era. A hardshell case is also included.
