Gibson Announces Its Guitar of the We(a)k

Gibson Reverse V

Yeah. It definitely is not pretty. Gibson Guitars have been running the Guitar of the Week program for almost a year now. Today, they announced an unique design: the Reverse Flying V.

Seemingly based on Gibson’s 1958 Flying V, the Reverse Flying V is inversed with a V-style mahogany fin, a retro-styled headstock, and Gibson’s Trans Amber finish. Other features include a string-thru-body V tail piece and eyelets, one volume knob, and dual topless (teehee) ‘57 Classic humbuckers with nickel pole pieces (teehee).

The guitar will have a solid Mahogany body, a Mahogany rounded neck (24 3/4” scale length), a Rosewood fretboard with 22 frets and dotted inlays, gold hardware, a tune-o-matic bridge, amber knobs, green key tuning machines, and a 3-way pickup switching system.

As with the other instruments in Gibson's Guitar of the Week series, the Reverse Flying V will be produced for a Limited Edition of only 400 guitars; although I personally wouldn't buy one, regardless of how many are produced.
