Hey, guys, I need some help. I have a Flying V I bought from a guy who had it in storage for quite a few years. I have done quite a bit of research and am really not coming up with a positive ID on this guitar.

It appears to be a copy of a '57 Gibson. I'm thinking it's a 1970's Ibanez as opposed to a Hondo or Electra... as far as I know, they don't come with custom hardshell cases.

It's gotta be pre-1977 as there are no serial numbers anywhere on it. It has low action, great tone, etc.

Can anyone help me ID this sucker and get an idea on value?

Not gonna join a group or get an account to see pics. Maybe post them where everyone can see them.

Maybe if the photobucket wasn't private.
Show a pic of the headstock.

Yep, the truss rod cover is too triangular for an exact Gibson replica.
Maybe look at the pickup cavity?

Agree with the above. Seems like a decent guitar however and if it plays and sounds good don't knock it.
