  1. looking for wife's flying v

    08 July 2017 - 06:15 PM

    Hey everyone...just started here and I really need some assistance...trying to find an exact replacement for my wife's flying v...she'd bought it new sometime in the 1990's...no earlier than '91 or later than '96 I believe...in the photo, it looked like the one on the far left, but with the following exceptions: the finish on the body, the headstock and the back of the neck was black with dark blue flecks (sparkles?)...all the plastic bits were black...(the pickguard, volume and tone knobs (bell shaped by the way), tremolo arm knob, the selector switch knob, as well as the two uncovered humbucker pickups and truss rod cover)...the hardware was chrome and the Gibson script on the headstock was gold (we think)...and the fret markers were silver (pearl?) dots...from what she described, the neck must have been more narrow that other Gibsons (at least more than my SG)...I'd greatly appreciate any help in finding one...it would mean a great deal to her.

    I've been playing since the 80's, but still have the proficiency of a beginner...I finally found a used SG in my price range(it'd been a dream of mine since I was a teen)...my young bride decided to start playing again and I'm trying to give her a refresher course(which is hilarious considering my playing level)...I'd love to find an exact replacement of her Flying V that she bought new during the 90's...she's having to make due with an old Squier Strat(unfortunate, but the only extra guitar I had with a slimmer, more narrow neck like her Flying V(which I didn't think would be on any Gibson, not that I've heard of anyway)...I'll post a pic similar to hers with a detailed script later(it's gonna be a fun one to find)...I figured if anyone can help me with this quest, I'd be ya'll...with some luck, she'll be cranking out some Iron Maiden again(oh yeah baby!!!!!!!)

    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!!!!
