The V2 was the first major redesign of the Flying V since 1966. The body shifted from mahogany to a five-piece body and neck made of maple and walnut. This guitar featured sculpted edges on the body and a pair of "boomerang" style pickups, though later the guitar would be available with standard humbuckers as well. The Flying V was updated again to a simpler design in 1981 with the Flying V I, and the Flying V2 would be discontinued not long afterwards.
