Gibson Flying V 2017 HP Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • You can't beat the feel of this SlimTaper Flying V neck
  • Plek'd for precision playability
  • Nitrocellulose finish for vintage looks and feel
You can't beat the feel of this SlimTaper Flying V neck

This Gibson Flying V gives you the smooth feel and fast action of Gibson's Flying V SlimTaper profile neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications, eventually becoming the standard SlimTaper carve. And when you add to that the ultra-smooth feel of its Granadillo fingerboard, you get the best of both comfort and performance from the Gibson Flying V.

Plek'd for precision playability

This Gibson Flying V 2017 HP feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.

Nitrocellulose finish for vintage looks and feel

The Gibson Flying V wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to breathe. Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful, but they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.

Gibson Flying V 2017 HP Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Flying V style with modern appointments
  • Gibson Dirty Fingers humbuckers deliver power, clarity, and aggressive tone
  • SlimTaper neck profile and Soloist neck width create a fast, precise feel for modern players
  • Fast-access heel improves access to upper frets

Tonal tenacity awaits in the Gibson Flying V 2017 HP guitar!
