Flying V Standard
Figured Maple Top, Solid Mahogany Body
$5,799
Gibson Custom’s Flying V Standard takes its design cues from the the late-’50s “futuristic” design that took the guitar world by surprise. From that starting point, we’ve complemented the now iconic Flying V design with Les Paul-inspired aesthetics including a two-piece, figured-maple top, single-bound body and neck, as well as a lightweight, solid mahogany back tastefully finished in cherry red. The Flying V Standard’s undeniably Gibson tone comes from a matched set of Custom Bucker pickups.
