Cool! I started playing guitar in the 80s, and regularly going to guitar stores (and pawn shops) in the early 90s. Back then, there were all sorts of 60s Melody makers around. Most had the traditional Les Paul shape, some had the sharp doublecut shape (like an early Epiphone Olympic), and some had the SG shape. I always thought the SG -shaped MM was a very cool guitar, but I wondered what would happen if Gibson gave the same Melody Maker treatment to some of their other iconic body styles. Here's my answer! The Flying V has become a Melody Maker now, and to great effect. Gibson did a good thing and gave this guitar a humbucker pickup instead of the single coil they usually put in the MM models of the past, and it is a much better guitar because of it.


The guitar is pretty simple - one pickup, one knob. It sounds bright and cutting, all the time. The only real way to affect any change is to change amp or effect settings. What you see is what you get with this guitar, and it's great for any rock style, even metal.


I'm a fan of this. The cool factor is way up there, and it's good to have available a USA-made Gibson Flying V for under $500! It's for minimalist guitarists - players that don't feel like futzing about with their knobs and players that just wanna rock. Very nice, Gibson.
