When the Kalamazoo factory unveiled the Flying V as part of Gibsons Modernistic Series in 1958, many in the industry had their doubts about the success of the unusual design. The angular Flying V didn’t look like any guitar on the market and it was not easy to play sitting down. But before long, the “V” had some serious champions like Lonnie Mack, Albert King and Jimi Hendrix. Now, Epiphone brings back the once limited edition legend with our 1958 Korina Flying V featuring gold hardware, a gold string-through body bridge, and Alnico Classic Pickups.
The 1958 Flying V features our Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service. Visit an Authorized Epiphone Dealer today and make a name for yourself with the 1958 Flying V.
