For those of you in the know this is one of the best sounding Flying Vs out there! see these pics [ATTACH=CONFIG]332673[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]332674[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]332675[/ATTACH] more 1988 Gibson Flying V 90 Flying V 90 a long scale length of 25 1/2 inches, and a medium neck profile. Solid mahogany body, mahogany neck, and ebony fretboard with 24 medium frets and inlaid pearl split-diamond position markers. Triangular headstock with rounded top and vertical inlaid pearl "Gibson" logo. Individual Grover Roto-Matic tuners with half-moon metal buttons. One volume control on pickguard. All hardware is black chrome. With the original metal Steinberger thigh rest on the treble side of the guitar. "Gibson was aware of the success of long-scale guitars during this period of time and adapted the Flying V to meet these specifications. The V90 was an unusual Flying V and one of the few models (along with the V90 Double and Golden Eagle) designed with the longer 25 1/2" scale length used on the Fender Stratocaster guitars. This longer scale makes the body appear smaller than other Flying V guitars, when in fact it is the neck that is longer. The longer scale accommodates two extra frets (24 total). On the backside, along the top of the bass side wing is a sculpted cut-out. A split-diamond pattern...is inlaid on an ebony fingerboard. The hardware is black chrome. With a bell shaped truss rod cover and vertical Gibson pearl logo inlay. Steinberger balance-bar flips out from the treble side wing bottom"
