Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
When I decided to purchase this guitar, it was based on another review here on zZounds. I have to say that my experience was as good as the previous reviewer's.The guitar is a satin finished guitar that isn't too unlike the "government" models from 7-8 years ago. The paint seems very durable and it looks pretty amazing on the guitar. The setup out of the box was spot on. The action is perfect, the nut cut was excellent. No fret buzz anywhere and the string heights were spot on. The neck width is perfect for soloing and the frets are well done. No jagged frets at all.The pickups were an interesting choice in my opinion. I have several other Flying Vs, one with Dirty Fingers, another with Dirty Fingers +, a third with EMGs and the other with a 57 classic and a BurstBucker 3. The 490s are more typical to a SG then a V but they work and work well. My fiance commented that the guitar has growl. The pickup combination on this guitar makes it perfect for rock, hard rock and metal (what I used it for). My guitar came in a hard case with all the case candy (strap, multi tool, picture and warranty information). I don't know if all will but this was a super nice bonus!If this guitar is typical for what the new Gibson is doing, they have me back as a customer. Kudos to Zzounds for a great deal on the guitar and excellent customer service. It helps to call and talk to someone.
