hmmmmmmmmmmmmm Sherlock Holmes?

maybe not.



lookin pretty dark back there...



yummy



there ya go. Gibson Gothic Flying V

Review. this guitar is in really good shape overall, especially for being 10 or 11 years old. it has all of the case candy and has been cased for the last 5 years. its flat black and still does have a pickguard, its just hard to spot. the fret work is remarkable, i dont think i saw one bit of wear. grover tuners. the neck is pretty thin for a gibson, i would even say a little slimmer than the 60's profile that i play on my LP. its pretty cool i haven't researched them too much yet, but she is pretty. sounds really great. it was doing the brootz on the Lee Jackson very well. the neck pickup offers pretty decent cleans, i dont know what pickups are in here other than the fact that it is 100% stocked.

HNGD!


thanks.

little update, it looks like there isn't a whole lot of information out there readily searchable (in the last 5 mins) but i did confirm my thoughts about the 496r and 500t pickups, i love 500t's.

looks like i got a good price too. $560 with case. the finish looks a lot better in person i think some of the effect is the lighting.

i just posted an ad on CL saying "want to buy your gibson today for $600" i had like 5 responses and his looked the best, so i took it.

Haha sounds like you made out.

And I wish I had enough money to impulse(ish) buy guitars like that.

i really wasn't expecting anything decent. i thought i would get 5 epiphone, an aglie or so, an LTD EC (even though i made it very clear only gibsons, no other brands, no epiphones), etc. all the responses were gibsons! i was amazed. but one of them was a SG special, then there were two that offered up a hundred or so above, one nice looking LP for $800. it was a no brainer.

i am loving this guitar.

i know, i did too and always thought it looked ugly, but i am really loving this guitar, and this one is definitly better looking Gibson V models i have seen. only one i like a little bit better may be the voodoo, but this one i am in love with.
