The illustrated history of this Modernistic guitar is back for a revised second edition. Larry Meiners wrote and published the first edition in 2001, and author Zachary R. Fjestad (Blue Book of Electric Guitars) has revised and added information to this book. This book includes the history of the Flying V from the first designs in the mid-1950s to the models Gibson is currently producing fifty years later. New additions include all the models to be introduced and discontinued since 2001, the inclusion of Epiphone Flying Vs, and a new chapter on other manufacturers who have copied this fascinating design. An eight page color section and several specification pages make identifying your Flying V a breeze!
