Offered for sale is the remarkable 2022 Gibson Custom Shop Limited Run 70s Flying V VOS, adorned in the striking Antique Silver Burst finish, and accompanied by the original hard-shell case and certificate of authenticity. This guitar stands out as a unique modern Flying V, seldom seen in the distinctive Silverburst color—a true rarity in the V world. Despite having been played, the instrument remains in very good condition and functions flawlessly. Some scratches and a few minor dings contribute to an overall rating of a solid 8.5 out of 10.
Notably, this Flying V boasts a modification, as the original Super '74 pickups have been replaced with Gibson Burstbucker 2 and 3 hum-buckers. Renowned for their PAF replication, these pickups deliver an airy, full tone, achieving a magical distortion with slightly enhanced highs when overdriven, reminiscent of the originals. While the original pickups are not included, the rest of the guitar remains entirely original, without any cracks, repairs, or other issues. The neck maintains a straight profile, and the original frets are in excellent condition, ensuring a clean playing experience free from buzzing or dead spots.
Recent setup work has further optimized the guitar's playability, and detailed photos of the wear provide transparency. The images accompanying the listing depict the actual guitar for sale, not generic stock photos. Thank you for considering this exceptional piece that marries a distinctive visual appeal with the renowned craftsmanship of the Gibson Custom Shop.
