Product description:When Gibson decided to update the look of its guitars in the late 1950ís, as the seeds of hard rock were being sown, the Flying V was its flagship.

This Flying V, of course, will play no rock, but it has the kind of unselfconscious penache that made its musical colleague a powerful statement (and, incidentally, an excellent investment).
