    One of 6 made in 1959 with white plastic, this Flying V weighs almost nothing, has THE neck, and is available at a great price. Owned by a good customer for the past 10 years. Removed Bigsby, with the screw holes filled using korina from under the guard. The whole guitar was oversprayed at the time, the original serial number is intact, and the later clearcoat has checked a good bit. The original tuners have "shrunken button disease", so I put Gotoh replica tuners on so that it can be enjoyed. The PAFs are GODLIKE. I have owned and played several of these, and this one blows my mind. If my kids didn't need educations and food, I would have struck a deal for this guitar.

    Take a look.....

    We are selling the guitar for the owner, at the very nice price of $85k, down from the $97k asking price before Christmas. These were going for a quarter mil a year ago, and you would not need to be afraid to actually PLAY this guitar.

    Contact me directly for more information.

    Beautiful axe Greg, you don't see many of these on the market, in fact I think the last one I remember seeing for sale belonged to Brian Ferry. Good luck with the sale.

    It's beyond human.

    Guido, the repair was done 20 years ago, at least. Not by me.

    I'll do up another pic showing the control cavity.

    It's an investment, honey! It'll do better than the 401(k) (not that that's saying much!). Trust me!
