Gibson USA 80s Flying V and Explorer the music zoo

The new Gibson USA 80s Flying V and Explorer revisits the beloved models made in 1984 in all of their Heavy Metal and Hard Rock glory!

Gibson USA has reissued a take of the classic Explorer and Flying V guitars released in 1984 as the new 80s Flying V and Explorer both finished in an awesome all-ebony color. Both shapes were already icons by the 80s, but it's that specific year where everything came together to give Hard Rock and Heavy Metal guitarists the tone that they were after.

Gibson USA 80s Flying V and Explorer Features and Details

Features include a gold screenprinted Gibson logo, fast-playing SlimTaper mahogany neck, and a new set of pickups called 80s Tribute humbuckers. They have a huge, fat sound with rich sustain. Lots of punch that go incredibly well with the high-gain amplifiers being introduced around that era. Pick up your 80s Flying V or Explorer at The Music Zoo today!
