Description

This faithful 1990 replica of a 1958 Gibson Flying V was made by the respected maverick luthier Peter Max Baranet. Complete with contrived finish checking to suggest age (before Fender and Gibson started doing such things in their custom shops). This is one of three lefty V’s made in the late ’80s for a lefty guitar dealer/collector in California before he started using the Max name. Hence why there’s no COA with the guitar.

It features an early 1960’s SG fingerboard, Historic Reissue V tailpiece, pickguard and tuners, and a Patent No neck humbucker and Patent No stamped bridge humbucker. True to the original, the body and neck are made of solid korina wood.

Peter Max Baranet (now retired) is considered to be one of America’s premier electric guitar builders and has created Gibson Les Paul and Flying V replicas for players like Slash, Eddie Van Halen, Lenny Kravitz, Nikki Sixx and Zakk Wylde.

Every MAX replica was hand-made by Max. These were not mass produced, factory made instruments. Quantities were extremely limited. In fact, less than 10 people in the United States own a genuine MAX Flametop Les Paul. According to Max, “my reproductions are as close to an original as possible. And most definitely closer than anyone else has come. My guitars give you the same quality, sound and beauty of an original 1959 Burst”.

This extremely rare and collectible guitar comes with an original Gibson V
