Larry Meiners wrote many articles on vintage guitar collecting, is the author of total shipments on Flying V Gibson. I just received this book in the mail yesterday and I love it. From early design to a list of the full model with production dates and factories doll drawings, everything is here. There is even a section on the case! My first impression of the Flying V was like a kid 8 years in ’65 watching “Shindig” and The Kinks came on.
They played “Tired Of Waiting” and there was Dave Davies with his Korina V, playing with his arm in the fork of the body. Well, this book not only speaks when and where Dave bought his V, but how much he paid for it (you will not believe it) .I’ve been a fan of V since Andy Powell Brothers Dave Schenker (Meniketti Yesterday and today the first album) and Albert King and beyond. I wish the color section was a bit longer, but the rest of the book is remarkable.

For a brief period Hendrix was seen using a Les Paul Custom, and he was photographed with a Les Paul Special. It seems he favored using his Gibson guitar for bluesy numbers, perhaps as a way to fatten his tone a bit. Fortunately, these beauties were ever fired at the end of his shows, as far as we know! The Flying V has probably attracted Hendrix in part because of the double cut, which makes it easy to turn on and play the guitar left-handed as he did. The guitar is well suited to be played on the left, without sacrificing access to the upper frets.
According to the Flying V fansite extremely well documented flying-v.ch Hendrix had three different models – a 67 he had himself painted by hand, an Albert King Flying V , and a left-hand drive 1969 Tailor V. Jimi began the hand-painted Flying V in 1967, and used extensively for about a year before the custom SG took his place. After selling his first Flying V, he got the Rafale tobacco, which was eventually replaced by the use of the left hand Flying V, which can be seen very clearly from the isle of Wight legendary concert.
