Gibson unleashes a pair of new Flying Vs

V, v nice

Gibson has launched two new Flying V models, the Flying V History and the Flying V 120.

The Flying V History ($1,999) has been launched as part of Gibson's 120th anniversary celebrations, and features a mahogany neck and body, a pair of '57 classic pickups and Gibson's 120th banner at the 12th fret.

The Flying V 120 (also $1,999) features a pair of Burstbucker humbuckers, and looks as good as the Flying V did when it was first introduced back in the '50s.
