    EvOR Guitar Kits - Flying V Kit
    NoteSome assembly required.
    Gibson first manufactured prototypes of the guitar in 1957. Production guitars were made of korina wood, a trademarked name for limba, a wood similar to but lighter in color than mahogany. This Flying V, along with the Futura (Explorer) and, initially, the Moderne, made up a line of modernist guitars designed by Gibson's then-president Ted McCarty.[2] These designs were meant to add a more futuristic aspect to Gibson's image, but they did not sell well. After the initial launch in 1958, the line was discontinued by 1959. Some instruments were assembled from leftover parts and shipped in 1963, with nickel- rather than gold-plated hardware.

    Blues-rock guitarist Lonnie Mack and blues guitarist Albert King started using the guitar almost immediately. Later, in the mid-late 1960s, such guitarists as Dave Davies and Jimi Hendrix, in search of a distinctive looking guitar with a powerful sound, also started using Flying Vs. The renewed interest created a demand for Gibson to reissue the model.

    We also have a learning section so you can read about building your kit as well as watch videos of others providing instructions. That section is linked under Guitar Tips on the link bar to the left.

    In stock orders will be shipped within 3-5 business days of the order. Special orders will take between 4-6 weeks. See the spec and order page for product availability and shipping details.

    FLYING V History:
    Gibson first manufactured prototypes of the guitar in 1957. Production guitars were made of korina wood, a trademarked name for limba, a wood similar to but lighter in color than mahogany. After the initial launch in 1958, the line was discontinued by 1959.

    Blues-rock guitarist Lonnie Mack and blues guitarist Albert King started using the guitar almost immediately. The renewed interest created a demand for Gibson to reissue the model.

    Gibson reissued the guitar in mahogany in 1967, updating its design with a bigger, more stylish pickguard, and ditching the original bridge, which had the strings inserted through the back, in favor of the stopbar tail piece more commonly associated with Gibson models. Like other Gibson guitars the Flying V's headstock is angled at 17 degrees to tighten string tension to increase the amount of sustain.
