Gibson Shred V (2008) Electric Guitar #177/1000 PRE-OWNED
This used Gibson Flying-V is in excellent condition and is number 177 out of a limited-run of 1000. The only modification from its original state was the addition of an EMG 81 pickup in the neck position. The original EMG 85 pickup is included in the sale, and will be shipped in the case with the guitar.
Gibson USA’s Guitar of the Month for August 2008 takes the style and attitude of the fearsome Flying V a step further. Two EMG 85 pickups deliver high-ouput, screaming tone, perfect for aggressive hard rock and metal, and a new Kahler 2215K tremolo system allows stable tuning and dive bombs. The Shred-V is outfitted with black chrome hardware, and an Ebony finish that captures every detail and sharp style of the classic Flying V. The neck is one-piece mahogany with Gibson’s traditional Flying V profile—a hybrid between the standard ’50s rounded contour and the ’60s slim-taper profile—and an ebony fingerboard with black acrylic dot inlays unique only to the Shred-V. Locking Grover tuners keep the guitar in tune when pushing the Kahler tremolo system to its limits. Gibson’s new Shred-V Flying V—offered with a custom Guitar of the Month case—combines classic Flying V style with sonic intensity and a sleek look. Production is limited to just 1,000 guitars
