1971 GibsonFlying V Medallion – Cherry

New into our store is one of Gibson’s first true “limited editions”: this 1971 Gibson Flying V Medallion in Cherry! Gibson released around 353 of these Flying Vs to mark the 1972 Olympics in Munich. With that being said, less than 200 of these guitars are accounted for, with even fewer in as clean a shape as this example here! This short run can be spotted by its overall slimmer body shape, a more rounded headstock, and the gold “medallion” applied to the bass wing of the body denoting its serial number and limited edition status. This guitar is an exceptional player, and sounds incredible amped up! One small hole had been drilled inside the lower bout to move the strap button, but it has since been moved back to its original spot.
