Jimi Hendrix is widely regarded as the most innovative guitarist of the rock era. This Custom Shop Flying V™ is a right-handed recreation of Jimi's left-handed 1969 Gibson Flying V, which he custom-ordered directly from Gibson. Used during the Band of Gypsys era, it was made famous by Hendrix's performance at the Isle of Wight Festival on August 31, 1970. It features a Murphy Lab Aged Ebony finish, as well as aged gold hardware. Only 125 right-handed models will be created as part of this very special run, hand-made by the expert luthiers and craftspeople of the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Only 150 of these instruments will be made.
