Blast from the past, a Model 3DR that are getting quite scarce these days, in very sought after crackle graphics.

Gibson 67 Reissue Flying V $1800.00 - SOLD!

Filed Under (Gibson, x- SOLD -x) by Importstrings on 12-09-2008

New condition

The “Classic” Gibson Flying V on release was too radical for the times, but by the early to mid 70’s and the soon to explode Rock/Metal scene guitarists needed an axe that symbolized power, attitude and “delivered the goods”. The Flying V is undoubtedly the symbol of ROCK and in the hands of such greats as Jimi,K.K Downing,The Schenker brothers, Kirk Hammet etc.etc..etc…were to forge a legacy for generations to follow. That original Gibson crunch gives you a grin everytime you plug in, that deep Ballsy crunch that made so many classic metal anthems. The 67 Reissue is just that, always reliable, perfect for rockin’ and really cool harmonics, ensuring it will always have a place in rock for many years to come.

New condition

Another beautifully crafted J Custom, this one is a 2008 model and is only 5 months young in Spinel Red. The new 08 model comes with the new Edge-Zero w/Zero Point System, personally how Ibanez can improve on something that you thought was already perfect still amazes, but they have keeping them light years ahead of the competition. The new edge Zero w/ZPS is considered by many to be the most stable yet flexible set-up to date. Like all J Customs flawless craftsmanship using top class woods, sounding as good as they look, they really are a jaw dropper when seen in the flesh making them a real centre piece in any collection.
