My 2007 birthday guitar: Gibson “Faded” Flying V. One of the new models, but not a new axe, I got a deal from a local guy here.
The Little Brendon snow Falcon Flying V is packed with classic rock, but its dramatic looks are likely to take you first. The stand-out feature here is the key in white, created by the white polymer stratification for a baked maple ‘board. Registered with the brilliant “snow squall” body finish, white plastic, doll back-to-snow graphics Falcon, and chrome hardware, the result is a look that will get you noticed in all the scenes. Tone is provided by a pair of microphones renowned BurstBucker humbuckers Gibson, independent switching with push-pull coil-split for optimal sound versatility.
superior material, a feeling of sublime game, and the incomparable quality of Gibson construction complete the package. A BurstBucker 1 in the neck position and hot BurstBucker 2 in the bridge reflect the glory of the snow Falcon for the masses. These are made in the image of Gibson PAF humbuckers holy in the late 1950s, with genuine Alnico II magnets and 42 AWG. The results are rich and thick guttural tones in the neck position and a lot of crunch and tears in the deck. They are wired to serve the old master volume and single tone, with each switching splitting the independent push-pull coil and three-way Switchcraft selector.
The Little Brendon snow Falcon Flying V is decorated with the image of the original Gibson Flying V 1981, one of the most radical ever to have hit the scene guitar designs. Its body is made from solid mahogany, a tonewood the test of time known for its superb resonance and sustain. The neck is glued to the mahogany sawn solid area for superior strength and carved into the fast thin profile that shredmeisters prefer. His touch is visually stunning created from white polymer laminate maple baked hard, marker position without moving into the snowy expanse.
