    This is a Guitar Center limited-edition. It has a mirror pick guard and Dirty Fingers pickups. This guitar plays and sounds amazing. The QC on this was 100% perfect.

    I had zero interest in a flying V until I saw one in real life. They look MUCH better in person, and now I want one.

    Yes, I can't promise it will be an issue for everyone, but the danger does exist.

    What's the deal with the pickup covers? Are they black chrome or like burnished or something? Very cool axe.

    It also could be just the direction of photo angle as the light hit them and reflected to appear dark?

    V's are great, I have two and they're right up there with my SG's as favourites. So comfortable to play and they look awesome!

    Hey Angel, I have a very similar Hamer Vector. Is yours a US model or one of the newer Indonesian ones?

    V’s are awsome. I never really thought i wanted one, but after getting mine its kind of become the guitar i pick up first.
    Once getting used to tue tecnique sitting down, its great! And easy standing up. Light and flat. And so easy fret access all over! Underastinated guitar (although i have a cheaper Gibson Satin)

    congrats! Yours are awsome. I am on the lookout for a 67 reissue atm.

    Congratulations, thats frikkin ROCKIN' !
    WOW, NICE ONE, looks soooo BAD-A$$$....
    Up until 4-5 months ago I had never touched or played a GIBSON Flying 'V', now that I got one...its the only guitar I want to play ! I'd have gone thru 20 by now had I not picked up an SG first.
