    All else fails, modify and repaint?

    ...well...hate to modify an original...might redo one that needs repair...if an exact replacement couldn't be found, I have one other option...I could custom build her one with aftermarket parts...she'd hinted on one with a translucent blue finish with dolphins on it

    I think what you're looking for is a '67 reissue. The '67 V had that type of tremolo on it and some of the reissues had that as well. They seem to be fairly expensive since they were a limited release.

    There's a few for sale: https://www.google.c...f=1499780359217

    I have a 2007 '67 reissue, sort of. Mine doesn't have the whammy bar and is a three pickup version in faded white. It has a fairly thin and narrow neck, fairly light compared to my 81 V. Pictures of mine are to the left. I hope that helps you find what you're looking for. Good luck in your search.

    ...I know it's the same post on the welcome forum, but I had to thank you again Michael...your info is the biggest lead I've got on this quest and I can't thank you enough

    I'll keep an eye out.

    In the meantime, check out Guitar Center's website or Reverb.

    A girl with a Flying V, was she in Bennie and the Jets?

    thanks Vince...I sure appreciate it...the main prob will be the finish on it...I haven't seen a sparkle finish of any kind on anything since the 70's...as for my girl being in Bennie and the Jets?...well...she's a bit younger than I am...so that reference would fall on deaf ears...I can remember hearing a song on the radio and saying to her that's the group Supertramp...I can still remember her answer...WHO?

    Welcome to the forum Chronicargonaut. Posted Image Glad to have you here too. I've never owned a Flying V so can't help there but there's many folks here that love them. If you don't get the right folks along as many here don't do the welcomes, get your reguired posts in and go to the Gibson lounge. Think you have to have 12 or 15 posts in and you can post there. That's where the mast majority are. By the way how do you like the Artic tundra? Very cold there and I would love to visit it once before I croak. LolPosted Image

    thanks retired...ya'll are about the most friendly and outgoing people I've met on any chat site..as for liking the Artic Tundra (otherwise known as Wisconsin)...it's not a bad little state...the people are very friendly and the area is very beautiful...if you're "thirsty", there are plenty of establishments here for that (how they all stay in business, I don't know)...it may not be Dixie, but I've made my own version of it here in the Northwoods

    I'm an expat from Louisiana living in Wisconsin...married to the most incredible girl that has given me 3 wonderful sons...I've been playing since I was 15 or so, but still perform like a beginner *sigh* ...wife has recently restarted playing (with me reteaching her the basics no less...poor woman)...looking forward to hearing her play some Iron Maiden again!!!!
