About This Vintage Ad

2001 Gibson Flying V ’98: This guitar was created to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the 1958 Gibson Flying V. It was produced in limited runs from 1998 to 2002. The model combines features of the 1958 Flying V including headstock shape and control layout and features form the 1967 Flying V including body shape and truss rod cover. It features a 60’s neck profile. The original pickups were Gibson 496R/500T and have been re-installed. It appears that the center pot is a replacement and the strap pins are replaced with Schaller locking type. The guitar shows just a hint of fret wear and plays without issue and is freshly set up with 10 gauge strings. The guitar is in overall great shape with just a few small nicks and chips. The guitar is super light at 7lbs., 2oz. This guitar ships in the original Gibson hard shell case as shown.

Please view all of the photos to complete the description. Please feel free to send any questions and I will answer them as quickly as possible.

Guitars can experience slight changes during shipping that may require minor adjustments. In addition, I can not predict how you like your guitar set up. Be advised that minor adjustments or a set-up to your liking may be required and the costs associated with these adjustments should be expected.

Please note that I sell predominantly pre-owned guitars. These are not personal instruments so, although they are inspected and tested, it is possible that I might miss a small nick or ding or, in the case of older guitar there may be just to many blems to photograph all of them. I will not be responsible for any shipping charges because you want to send the guitar back because you found a nick or ding that I did not describe or show in a photo.

Under no circumstances will I be responsible for any shipping charges, send or return, unless this item is damaged in shipping.

We offer a 48 hour approval period.

Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or for an in hand description.

Shipping is via FEDEX or UPS Ground unless you have specific needs which I will try to accommodate
