I got this guitar at Mars Music just yesterday for $560 , when I was shopping around at their going out of business sale. I saw it hidden behind/below a few ltds so I picked it up and plugged it into a marshall and just jammed for a few minutes. It has a nice smooth feel to it , the finish makes it look like an old friend, it has all that the other V's have except the finish and crescent inlays. The best part is it only cost $560.. for a USA made gibson the regular price is around $620 and list is $900+ .

Personally I love the faded finish because it gives it a very nice look (Most of the pictures you see on the internet don't do it the justice it deserve)

The only thing I don't like about this guitar is the crescent inlays because I don't really like inlays on the fretboard besides on the side. Though I do think they give it a unique look.

I love the sheer perfection of the body construction on this one , it's so smooth and comfortable, when I'm standing up playing it , the balance is just right. Everything is in new good working condition, the volume and tone pots have no scratching or fading out or anything. The inlays are very nicely crafted and positioned too.

For under $900 , why wouldn't you want a nice new gibson Flying V ?
