 2008 Gibson Flying V. Many upgrades.

  We'll start with the color which
is a stock pearl white which has yellowed nicely to a soft cream color.
Usual Flying V neck which is somewhere between a 60's slim taper and a
'50's roundback. It's flatter that a '50's, but about as wide at the fretboard.

fretboard freshly oiled with lemon oil to a nice soft hue. MOP dot
inlays. Stock nut. Truss works great, lots of movement available to
allow for different gauge of strings. I'm not a fan of the thick lacquer
Gibson seems to put on the back of their necks, so I wet sanded this
one with 800 grit until the sheen came out of the stock finish and then
shot the back of the neck with Guitar Re Ranch satin clear lacquer
giving her a nice smooth texture. I put four coats on with wet sanding
between each. I then pad sanded that after it cured so the neck is very
smooth and easy to play, even with sweaty hands. The stock Gibson tuners
have been replaced with sealed Grovers.

Next I installed a black abalone pick guard which picks up the cream
white of the body and black of the headstock very nicely. The
Gibson logo is an aftermarket chrome with laser etched black Gibson
logo. The volume and tone knobs are machined aluminum top hats with
textured black strips around each for ease of control. The Nashville
bridge, bridge posts, stop bar tail piece and stop bar posts are new Gotoh.
Excellent quality which allow for spot on intonation. She's currently
set up with GHS Boomers 9.5 through 44.

   The internal wiring is stock but I
replaced the stock pickups with nickle covered Gibson's, a '57 Classic
plus in the bridge and a '57 Classic in the neck. I also installed
oversized strap buttons because, face it, stock Gibby's don't quite do
the trick.

The only imperfection on this is a small chip into the wood which can
be seen on the lower bout in the photo. I've never touched it up
because it really didn't bother me.

The American peace sticker is applied over the finish and can be removed if one wished to do so, just peel it off.

  I DO NOT have a case for this, but it will be packed well for shipment.

  Buyer to contact me within 24 hours of auction end. Payment to be received within 3 days via PayPal. Those with excessive negative feedback or no feedback please contact me prior to bidding.

  Flat rate $50 shipping to continental US only. Will not ship internationally.

  Please ask all questions prior to placing bids.

  Good luck!
