SOLD - Gibson Flying V V98 2001 Purple

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This guitar has all the features of the limited edition run of Vs that I've moved through and see out there - the '58 style layout but with the stop bar tailpiece instead of the old style string-through-body setup.  The model number is DSVNTPCH1 and it says TP in pencil under the neck pickup.

The guitar is in excellent cosmetic condition with signs of playwear, and there are changes to note:

  • Changed tuners with old screw holes filled - the replacements are Schaller style locking tuners
  • The neck pickup is a PRS McCarty Bass 
  • The bridge pickup is a DiMarzio Tone Zone

All else is original.  

The guitar plays great and there are no structural issues or repairs.  The original case and paperwork are included.  Pics of the case and papers will be added soon.
