1978 Gibson Flying V – Rottweiler Mod
This 1978 Gibson Flying V is a custom project we did at The Local Pickup. We took an all original 1978 Flying V in amazing condition, one that played perfectly well and had an ideal neck in every way with great frets, and we replaced all of the removable parts with all black components selected by us.
We worked with Porter Pickups to design H90s (P90s that fit into humbucker slots). This way we did not have to alter the guitar at all (no new holes or routing). So, it can be put back to its original state very easily. These pickups are way bad ass, and guitar looks amazing.
We also worked with Couch Straps to design a custom vegan leather strap for the guitar, a strap that we think goes perfectly and makes a great addition to the guitar (really completes the package).
