An Incredible Recreation of the Legend's Left-Handed Flying V

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.

Jimi Hendrix is widely regarded as the most innovative guitarist of the rock era. This Custom Shop Flying V is a recreation of Jimi's left-handed 1969 Gibson Flying V, which he custom-ordered directly from Gibson. Used during the Band of Gypsys era, it was made famous by Jimi's performance at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival on August 31, 1970. It features a Murphy Lab Aged Ebony finish, as well as aged gold hardware. Only 25 left-handed models will be created as part of this very special run, hand-made by the expert luthiers and craftspeople of the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
