The iconic Flying V gets the Gibson Custom treatment with the classic ‘tuxedo’ looks of the original “Black Beauty” Les Paul Custom. The Gibson Custom Flying V has the tone of Gibson’s Custom Bucker pickups – meticulously designed and created after the classic PAF pickup…

Gibson Custom’s Flying V Custom reflects the kind of “what if” thinking that is the luxury of being the world’s most recognized guitar brand. At its heart, the Flying V Custom is the “futuristic” design of the late ’50s, when it was first released to a world obsessed with space, science and forward thinking. From there, we’ve taken liberties and additional design cues from the stately aesthetics of the original “Black Beauty” Les Paul Custom. What results is a wonderfully balanced guitar with real vintage V tone, dressed to its best for a look that exudes style and distinction.
