Overall: Gibson Flying V HP 2017 Black So I really love the guitar. I've had it for about a month and I don't have any real criticisms that I would tell someone to watch out for. Ordered it up from zZounds, they made the process easy and I had the guitar in a few days. While in transit the "G-Force" auto tune broke off so I contact zXounds and they did a phenomenal job of sending me return label information and getting a new guitar on its way very quickly. Actual guitar: It's a rock'n'roll machine. The upgraded pieces over the other 2017 are very nice and help give it great sustain. Titanium bridge really gets this guitar to sing for days. I'm still getting use to the dirty finger pups as my preference has always been Seymour Duncan SB but so far they have been great. The neck is a much thinner profile than any Gibson I have played but not like an Ibanez. It took me a couple treks with this mighty beast before I forgot about it. The neck is comfortable to play and it only took about 10 minutes to get the hang of the "G-Force". You can play any rock with this guitar be it heaven or light. Gig worthy or just at home it'll get the job done. Set up out the box was good. This is my first go at a Flying V and I am loving it, Gibson hit a home run!!!

Overall: The guitar plays and sounds great but the G-force tuning system I can do without. It does not stay in tune very well and minor adjustments are just difficult to maneuver. That being said, I get Evertune on all my guitars anyway so within two weeks, this baby will get a five-star rating. In the meantime, with the current tuning system, I'll give it 3 stars.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
