Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

Aggressive Tones, Super Premium Features

The Flying V is undeniably one of the most renowned guitars for heavy rock and metal genres, but it is also so much more than that and caters to a broad range of other styles, from jazz to blues, grunge to prog-rock thanks to its super-fast neck, effortless upper-fret access, comfortable shape, and natural sustain.

Slim Taper Neck & Pointed Headstock

The neck on new 2017 Gibson’s Flying V HP has the best of both worlds, as it is a hybrid between the ’50s rounded contour and the ’60s slim-taper profile. As with all Gibson necks, the Flying V mahogany neck is machined in Gibson’s rough mill using wood shapers to make the initial cuts. Once the fingerboard gets glued on, the rest including the final sanding is all done by hand.In addition, this means there are no two necks with the exact same dimensions. So while it still has the basic characteristics of its respective profile, each neck will be slightly different, with a distinct but traditional feel.

The pointed headstock featured on this guitar is another example of Gibson's industry-changing way of thinking and quality. This unique headstock is carved out of the same piece of mahogany as the neck, and then fitted with Gibson's traditional wing blocks. The headstock is also carefully angled at 17 degrees, which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay in the nut slots. In addition, an increase in string pressure also means there is no loss of string vibration between the nut and the tuners, which equals better sustain and an overall smooth play. In addition, a chrome arrowhead truss rod cover adds a nice finishing touch to the headstock, and perfectly complements the chrome hardware on the Flying V body.

Dirty Fingers Humbuckers

The Flying V HP captures every nuance of the original styling, and delivers tones that match its iconic and aggressive looks thanks to a pair of roaring Dirty Fingers humbuckers, which are among the most powerful pickups Gibson has ever produced. Based on the 1970s super powerful humbucker, the appropriately named Dirty Fingers humbucker delivers maximum output and packs plenty of punch which is perfect for heavy rock and metal. Each pickup is equipped with a 4-conductor lead and is wax-potted to eliminate undesirable microphonic feedback. Controls include two volume, one master tone, along with an aviation grade toggle switch for simplified control.

G Force Auto-Tuning System For Quick & Efficient Tuning

The G force self tuning system is a cleverly designed system that works by a mechanical device that is secured to the headstock. Each machine head contains a small servo motor that can wind the string up or down. Simply push the on button and strum to see this device in action and perfectly tune your guitar. This innovative design is featured on all of Gibsons High Performance range, and make tuning your guitar a thing of the past.

Not only does the G force tuning system provide standard tunings, it also offers alternate and custom tunings, tuning to instruments that are in tune with themselves but not to concert pitch, adding pitch offsets to individual strings, and tuning with a capo. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the G force system provides up to 100 tunings on one single charge, and also allows for manual tuning.

Titanium Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut

Not only does the new Flying V HP provide the perfect combination of superb tone and looks, it is also equipped with an innovative Nut. The Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut is a superior nut design in Gibson’s High-Performance series of guitars, due to its exceptional adjustability to match various playing styles. This cleverly designed Nut benefits from an all-titanium construction for extreme durability, and a retaining screw so the nut stays in place when you change strings. Like with bridge adjustments, the Zero-Fret Nut allows you to adjust the height and angle, for the optimum feel.

Aluminium Tune-O-Matic Bridge

The Tune-O-Matic bridge offers stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge, as you simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action, and screw the bridge saddles in or out to achieve perfect intonation.

In addition, every Tune-O-Matic bridge that Gibson feature on thier models is combined with a separate "stopbar" tailpiece, which is essentially designed to further enhance the connection between the strings and the body.

Added Accessories

This iconic Flying V HP Electric Guitar also comes equipped with Gibson’s fitted flying V hardshell case for portability and storage, along with a premium leather strap, Gibson’s multi-tool, and a polishing cloth. With all these great extras, the Flying V HP Electric Guitar provides you with everything you need to get you on your way.
