    This mint V arrived today from a collector in Brooklyn. Been wanting one for a few years, not that I've ever been unhappy with my '67 Reissue. Ain't it purty? All stock and the seller even threw in a Gibson hard-shell case (these only had a gig bag from the factory). Now if y'all excuse me, I need to get back to playing it.

    Sigh.

    One of my favourite guitar styles, even though I’m not a HB guy, and I have never had a real one. I would like to have one with P90s and a Lonnie Mack-style Bigsby. Oh yeah.

    Congrats on the new V!

    Enjoy. I love V body shape. My first real guitar was a Gibson V I bought with a couple years of paper route money back in the 80’s. Always thought they were the most comfortable guitar to play sitting down, no strap needed.

    I got a black V copy with a great neck. I've got some of those Donlis cream HB's to put in it. Thanks for the images.

    Love the cream body/neck binding.

    That is pretty. I missed the binding and had to go back and zoom in...yep, that’s nice!
