This Vee has been kept in it’s case since new by an avid Scorpions fan and we just changed the original strings out for fresh 10’s. (Sheesh!!) It would be “mint” except there’s some staining on the back of the neck and one area on the body back from a strap or something similar that has transferred dye into the lacquer. Please see the pics. This is a common issue with white Gibsons in particular. Ain’t gonna harm you in any way and I’m pretty sure Rudy’s did the same thing. There’s zero play wear and it’s in as new condition except for you know what. This Guitar kinda makes me want to eat a COOKIE!
The Gibson Rudolf Schenker Flying V Electric Guitar is a signature model by the Scorpions' founding member and is sure to please any enthusiast of classic guitars. Rudolf is known for his love of the Flying V's distinctive shape and sound and this model is packed with his favorite features. It has a super lightweight Mahogany body with a set Mahogany neck and the fingerboard is granadillo for smooth feel and a sustainful touch.
The Rudolf Schenker Flying V’s body is crafted from solid mahogany in the seminal Flying V shape, first introduced by Gibson in 1958. In addition to its radical rock styling, the shape yields a light guitar for enhanced playing comfort, yet superb tonal weight and body, with excellent sustain. The solid-mahogany neck is carved in Rudolf Schenker’s preferred profile measuring 0.775” at the 1st fret and 0.900” at the 12th, and topped with a fingerboard made from rich, dark Grade-A Granadillo hardwood.
More than just a pure metal machine, the Rudolf Schenker Flying V is surprisingly versatile, thanks to its ’57 Classic and ’57 Plus Classic pickups (neck and bridge respectively). Crafted in the image of the original hallowed PAF humbuckers, these pickups offer plenty of vintage-voiced warmth and depth–yet are updated for contemporary high-gain performance, with loads of crunch and wailing lead tones on tap when you need them. They’re routed through the traditional Flying V control section of two independent volume controls, a master tone control, and a three-way selector switch.
The “double wide” pickguard matches the distinctive black-and-white paint scheme; the guitar carries three black Top-Hat knobs with silver inserts, along with a traditional Flying V truss-rod cover in four-ply white plastic with silver hot-stamped logo.
