Made in the USA! This axe is great but comes with some corners cut such as a solt shell bag and cheap tuners...It took several adjustments to get it up to par but now it's quite nice...

Classic Gibson body style, the Flying V has that comfortable, familiar feeling of a favorite guitar.

UTILIZATION

All frets accessible and play nicely....Even though there are 3 pickups, you can never use more than two at a time...

The design is classic and cool...But you also have to factor in the fact that if you want to sit down and play, you can't hold it like a normal guitar...You must straddle the V over one leg and it's odd and uncomfortable...

I personally changed the tuning knobs and it stays in tune much better than when I first got it...

SOUNDS

This guitar sounds really good through every amp I own- an that's a lot of amps! It does a nice brutal crunch but can get surprisingly pretty cleans too...

Make no mistakes, this is a rock guitar...Designed to rock...Sure it can do more, but if you're buying one of these, it's safe to say you're a rocker...

OVERALL OPINION

I like the easy access to all frets and its lightweight style best...I don't like the cheap tuners that cane on it nor did I appreciate the lack of any setup or calbration

The sound is all Gibson given the 49X pickups and mahogany body...I have many guitars and this is a middle of the roader...I haver some friends that just love it though...Great axe for the money but a very low-level Gibson...
