1974 Gibson Flying V

Here we have a really cool vintage Flying V from 1974 made in Gibson's Kalamazoo factory.  The guitar is in very good condition for it's age, but there was a headstock break/repair many years ago.  Other than that, the guitar is in really well-kept condition.  This guitar sings!  I've included many pictures and welcome questions.

The Details

  • All of the hardware is original, i.e. tuning machines, bridge, tail piece, knobs (one exception), pickguard, etc.
  • Equipped with DiMarzio Super Distortion humbuckers from the 1970's 
  • coil tap switch added; coil tap is for the neck pickup.
  • Output jack was moved to the side below the knobs
  • Pickup rings were added and are NOT screwed into the pickguard.  The screw heads were cut off and glued into place on the rings, so the rings can be removed and there would be no sign that they were ever on the guitar.
  • Nylon saddles on the original ABR-1 bridge
  • A second tone knob was added where the output jack was (to damage to the pick guard) so the guitar has Les Paul style controls.
  • The finish is in great condition for a guitar of over 40 years old.
  • Original hardshell case is in very good condition (for its age); purple plush lining.  ALL OF THE LATCHES WORK!
  • Has one of the most comfortable neck profiles I've ever played.
  • Frets are in great condition.
