Jimi Hendrix collectors take note! This is an extremely clean and super rare Gibson Custom Shop Jimi Hendrix Psychedelic Hand-Painted Flying V! A recreation of the original 1967 V that Jimi emblazoned with his own personal artwork using whatever materials he could find, mainly nail polish! He would use this V on slow Blues numbers, usually "Red House," but it eventually found its way into the hands of Mick Cox of Eir Apparent, who quickly stripped the original artwork off to make it his own guitar. Hindsight is always 20/20, Mick!
In 2006, the Gibson Custom Shop decided to reissue the iconic Psychedelic V, with 300 limited instruments being handpainted by master luthier Bruce Kunkel, and now we've found this instrument (#168 out of 300) in excellent condition here at the Music Zoo.
Features on the V include a mahogany body, mahogany neck with a 1-9/16" nut width, 24-3/4" scale length, rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets, two '57 Reissue PAF humbuckers with outputs of 7.93k and 7.99k, individual volume knobs with a master tone knob, 3-way toggle switch, black "Witch Hat" knobs, a Maestro tailpiece, Kluson Deluxe tuners, and nickel hardware. As we stated before, this instrument is excellent condition! It includes the certificate of authenticity, psychedelic strap, the Gibson paperwork and original hardshell case! This is one of the most fun guitars you could own as a Hendrix fan, and who isn't?
