The Flying V was considered one of the most radical and revolutionary guitars upon its launch in 1958. Fast forward to 2017, and the Flying V HP has evolved the concept to the next level. Incorporating some of Gibson's finest materials, components and hardware, the High Performance model sets a new benchmark for tuning stability, durability and great tone.
An iconic Gibson with pro performance features.
The most stand-out feature from the original is the new Dirty Fingers + humbuckers - one of Gibson's most aggressive, in-your-face pickups ever. Whether its a gritty, grunge sound or a thrashing heavy metal tone, the Flying V delivers the goods. Combine this with a fast playing Slim Taper neck with a fast-access heel, polished frets and an adjustable titanium nut, the 2017 Flying V HP is a shining example of how a pro player's guitar should be.
Additional appointments on the High Performance model include a more robust toggle switch, gold plated multi-contact jack, chrome aluminium Tone-O-Matic Bridge and upgraded G-Force tuners. For seasoned players that regularly perform with their axe, the road-ready Gibson HP series are a superb investment.
