I have a pickup listed with a 15" of lead wire length and a potential buyer wants to know if it is long enough to fit his Gibson Flying V? Does anyone have a Gibson Flying V and a tape measure to give me a ballpark idea to answer his question? I would assume he means the rear pickup distance?

Also, it is a left handed Flying V. Is there anything to consider for it being a left handed guitar?

Doesn't matter if it's a leftie, and 15" is more than enough.

Ya, considering it's 12" from the 12th fret to the bridge, 15" is plenty to get from the neck pocket to the control cavity.
