Takes the V to a whole new level.
The Limited Run Tribal V Electric Guitar takes the classic Flying V format to the next level, delivering an instrument honed for the contemporary player with all the time-honored features of the original. Clearly the most identifiable part of the Tribal V is its V-shaped mahogany body. The body is also set in a Satin White finish with a distinct Tribal art pattern design to accent the guitar's electronics and traditional lines, making it one of the most eye-catching vs Gibson USA has ever produced. The Tribal art pattern design also appears on the guitar's headstock, which remains true to the unique, pointed headstock found on the original Flying V. The neck is also the traditional Flying V neck, which is a hybrid of the standard '50s rounded contour and the '60s slim-taper profile.
Each Tribal V comes equipped with the industry's ultimate tremolo system—the Kahler 2215K from Kahler USA. This black chrome stud mount tremolo system features individual fine tuners; a brass cam and stainless steel saddles that deliver enhanced sustain and harmonics; and a warm, rich overall tone. Add the muscle of uncovered Gibson 496R and 500T humbucker pickups and you end up with one scorching and timeless rock and roll classic. The Tribal V Limited Run Series from Gibson USA is restricted to just 350 guitars, and all of them come with a black Gibson hardshell case with white interior and silkscreened Gibson USA logo and a special certificate of authenticity.
A certain aura of mystique has always surrounded the legendary Gibson Flying V. Ever since its introduction in 1958, the Flying V has remained the ultimate symbol of rock and roll rebellion. And although it wasn't fully embraced until the hard rock and heavy metal movements of the late '60s and early '70s, the guitar's intense magnetic appeal, powerful sound and unusually familiar shape have made it one of the most instantly recognizable guitars in the world.
