It is signed by Dave Mustaine of Megadeath - I can fully remove the signature at the buyer's request. The very first Flying V electric guitar blasted out of the Gibson factory in 1958. And although it took time for its legend to grow, the Flying V has become a true vintage guitar rarity as well as a benchmark for what a powerful, performance-driven guitar should be today. Now 50 years later, Gibson USA honors that legacy with the introduction of the 50-Year Commemorative Flying V—a fitting tribute to one of the world's most recognizable guitars, and Gibson USA's Guitar of the Month for March 2008. The 50-Year Commemorative Flying V guitar combines several timeless elements of the 1958 model, with a few modern appointments for today's demanding players. The solid mahogany, V-shaped body has been topped with AA flamed maple and has beveled edges exclusive to this limited edition. Also created especially for the Limited Edition Commemorative Flying V is an exclusive Brimstone Burst finish, and the headstock's rare, art deco Gibson logo, which was recently found among old drawings belonging to legendary Gibson President Ted McCarty. The neck sports the traditional Flying V profile--a hybrid between Gibson's standard '50s rounded contour and the '60s slim-taper profile. It is topped by a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl split-block inlays. This special Flying V is powered by a Gibson '57 Classic pickup in the neck and a Gibson '57 Classic Plus in the bridge. Other select features include gold fret wire, Steinberger Gearless Tuners, and a custom Guitar of the Month case from Gibson USA.
