Gibson Flying V hailed for advanced design

The Gibson Flying V has been commended by its manufacturer for its pioneering design and unusual shape.

According to the company, the electric guitar is one of the most successful instruments it has created.

However, Gibson noted that unlike models such as the Les Paul and the SG, the Flying V did not take off immediately.

Indeed, the firm said it may have been too far ahead of its time when it was first created in 1958, as it only acquired a substantial fanbase in later years.

This could be partly due its popularity with a number of rock musicians, such as Marc Bolan of T-Rex and Dave Davies of The Kinks.

Gibson described the failure of the electric guitar fraternity to accept the Flying V at the time of its original production run as a mistake.

In fact, the firm compared its poor judgement with the decision by Decca to reject a little-known band called The Beatles at an audition in 1962.
