Flying V Reviewed by: unregistered, on july 05, 2004 …. It has an enlarged headstock (like the specs on the originaly 1979 guitar) and grover  The simple set up is easy to get used to and it more versatile than any other guitar I’ve played. You know, I always thought that a flying V would be a PITA to play when you’re  I’ve only really used the classical position when I’m going for lead work, how is…… I have a Dean ’79 reissue Flying V and I’d never part with it.

It uses the Series 2 headstock, larger than the time capsule, and has the same look and feel as their predecessors of the seventies.

Features: This is my first review, keep in mind, I’ve played guitar since my 17th birthday, which was 08.01.2010 and still going. Mine is a review of slightly hesitant praise, I`ll try to contain my “fanboy love” of my guitar, and just know that I’ve only EVER played a J&D Stratocaster ripoff (deadbeat thing I destroyed from the inside out) and an LTD Viper-50, damned thing must have been taken literally when it said it wanted to be heavy and neckbreaking.  All my equipment has been a Laney 12W package amp I got with my J&D, after a while I bought a used Peavey Transtube StudioPro 112, then I bought a Laney 120w TF200 (from 94) and for Christmas of 2011 my brother bought me an Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff With Top Boost, which I always use. I have no professional opinions, just slight experience in my 2 years of playing. Now onto the guitar. No idea when it was made, but seeing as I ordered it on 15.01.2012, I’m sure it’s made in 2011 (in Korea), as I’ve seen the guitar at the site of purchase long beforehand.  Where to start. The guitar is a beauty to look at, I ordered the Trans Cherry Sunburst because I’m sick of being labeled a freak with addiction to dark things(no racism intended) just because I listen to metal, the finish looks cheerful and slightly “original” by metal standards(boring wannabe-hardcore, Kerry King style).

79 Gibson Flying V Review

One of the most influential heavy metal artists of all time, Kirk Hammett commands the #11 position in Rolling Stone’s “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Inarguably a master of heavy metal through his long career with Metallica, Kirk Hammett is one of the most multi-dimensional artists of recent history.
In celebration of Kirk Hammett’s amazing career, his influence on generations of guitarists and ever-evolving approach to the craft of guitar playing, Gibson Custom presents the Kirk Hammett Flying V – a true recreation of Kirk’s own 1979 Flying V which has been his trusted companion throughout his playing career.

Light, versatile, and an unbelievable value in this price range. Other guitar makers entries in this price range are at best souped up versions of their starter guitars…this was the most pleasant surprise of the last 5 years for me. Oh, and I should mention that I am a busy player who needs a sturdy platform to rock on…this baby meets and exceeds those needs…I would suggest adding this fine instrument to your axe collection, and use it often!
