Lovies Guitars is offering up this gorgeous 2012 Gibson Flying v Bass in Cherry! This guitar is amazing! It’s what we call “New Old Stock” which just basically means that Gibson found it in the back of the warehouse, whether it didn’t sell or they forgot about it, they sold it to vendors and shops and so it’s in brand new condition it just doesn’t come with a warranty. These were great years for Gibson, the shear quality and feel of the guitars were out of this world! You’re essentially getting a brand new guitar for the price of a used! See many detailed photos included!
Weighs in at 7.85 lbs
.832″ at the 1st fret
.916″ at the 12th fret
1.600″ Nut Width
Like several classic Gibson tone machines, the Flying V Bass has a body crafted from solid Grade-A mahogany in the classic Flying V shape, dressed in a high-gloss Cherry nitrocellulose finish, offset by a white, four-ply Flying V pickguard. It has a glued-in neck made from superior quarter-sawn Grade-A mahogany for improved strength and superior resonance, and a 22-fret fingerboard made from baked maple. The neck is carved to a comfortable slim profile and measures .850″ deep at the 1st fret and .900″ at the 12th, with a width of 1.60″ across its PLEK-cut Corian nut.
All this tonal goodness is cranked through a pair of contemporary Thunderbird Bass pickups with ceramic magnets to take you from gut-rumbling lows to searing highs with enhanced punch and clarity. Individual volume controls and a master tone control allow you to blend pickups as desired for a wide range of tones. Strings are anchored at the body end by a rock-solid, three-point bridge with individually adjustable saddles, and high-quality Grover “shamrock” key tuners grace the traditional Flying V “flying arrow” headstock, all plated in chrome to enhance the elegance of this sleek bass. Pack it all together, and it’s a stunning alternative that a lot of bassists will appreciate. Check one out today at your authorized Gibson dealer, and see what that alternative rumble can do for your music.
