Gibson Flying V Zakk Wylde Guitar


The Gibson Flying V is an electric guitar model first released by Gibson in 1958. The Flying V offered a radical, “futuristic” body design.

I love the playability, tone, feel, and how it looks damn good. I’m not terribly happy with the action and having the toggle switch to the tone knobs is a problem if you need to move quickly. My favorite feature is its appearance, and the presence he has. While shopping for it, I was choosing between this and an explorer. I took the Flying V just because the explorer was too hard to play up. I find the V very easy to play sitting, as long as you hold the “crotch” of the guitar on your right thigh, or on the side.

I wish the Gibson Flying V Zakk Wylde Guitar had a tremolo like signing Jimi Hendrix Flying V, but alas, I will do.All necktrough mahogany, 22 frets nickel / slver on a rosewood fingerboard. I am black with white pickguard to match my Explorer. 2 Gibson 496R and 500T humbuckers with 2 volume, 1 tone and 3 position selector. Tune o-matic and Gibson deluxe tuners. Of course, it came with a hard case, the new smell.Well ah, I play mostly prog / death metal so this guitar is a good instrument of destruction.

I’d better mics but the 500T on the deck does well, I play through a 6505 + head, so that the pickups are ok but I’ll get gaps later. It has a sound puncy tight, it is a rock / metal guitar and not a bad one.Factory implemented Well there is a problem, I do not know who set up know, but the intonation was crap, the bridge p / u is so high that rubbed on the strings if too hard. The frets are good without unsightly stains on them, just the usual dirty fingers across the guitar of choice of location on the venue.
