Presenting the 1997 Gibson Flying V '67 in Classic White, complete with its original hard-shell case. This well-played guitar is in good condition and perfect working order, emanating a wealth of vintage vibe. The wear on the guitar, including scratches, dings, and back wear, contributes to its authentic character.
Notably, this Flying V features finish checking along the sides of the fingerboard, a common occurrence in older white guitars, adding a touch of vintage aesthetics. The bridge pickup has been upgraded to a Suhr Aldrich humbucker, boasting an output of 16.67K and delivering a slightly hotter tone than the original 500T. Additionally, the pots, capacitors, and nut have been upgraded, enhancing the overall performance of the guitar.
While these modifications bring added value, the originality of the guitar is maintained, with the exception of the replaced components. No cracks, repairs, or structural issues are present, and the neck remains straight with original frets in excellent condition, free from wear, buzzing, or dead spots. A recent setup ensures optimal playability.
The original case remains fully functional, although it is worth noting that one of the latches on the back is broken. Fortunately, the case is equipped with four additional working latches, ensuring secure closure and protection for the guitar during transport.
The detailed photos provided give an accurate representation of the actual guitar available for purchase, steering away from generic stock photos. This package includes the original hard-shell case, offering secure protection for this distinctive 1997 Gibson Flying V '67.
Thank you for considering this unique instrument, a true testament to Gibson's legacy and an opportunity to own a piece of musical history.
