Group picture of my Gibson Flying V collection. Picture taken in December 2011.
1980 Gibson Flying V, Silver Sky. I have had this one since 2003
1981 Gibson Flying V, Bahama Blue. I have had this on since 2002.
1982 Gibson Flying V, Candy Apple Red. I have had this one since 2003.
1981 Gibson Flying V2, Bahama Blue Sparkle, Rare. I have had this gem since 2002.
1980 Gibson Flying V, Ember Red. This is the second one of these I have had. I've owned this one since 2009. I sold my other one in 2005 and regretted it, so I had to find another.
As you can see I bought another 80 Ember Red V in 2016 so I now have a pair of them. Love that color.
1981 Gibson Flying V, Heritage Cherry. I have had this one since 2009.
1981 Gibson Flying V, Cherry Sunburst. I bought my first one way back in 2003. It had lots of issues so I dumped it and bought a super clean one from a guy in Europe in 2016.
The rarest of all Gibson Finishes: Holly Green
This is my 1980 Gibson Les Paul Standard will beyond rare Holly Green finish. This is only one of two that I have ever seen. Someday I hope to find a 1980 or 1981 Gibson Flying V in this color. I've seen pictures of only one Holly Green Flying V in the last 20+ years. It is owned by a collector in Japan.
