1971 Gibson Flying V Limited Edition Medallion #187


This guitar is in our Hall of Fame Collection and is no longer available for purchase.


For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1971 Gibson Flying V Limited Edition Medallion #187.

One of the cooler guitars we've had in the shop lately is this 1971 Gibson Medallion V. These were made to commemorate the 1972 Olympics. Only 353 of these guitars were allegedly made, though Gibson employees have noted gaps in production such that a real number is much lower. Not many of these guitars remain and this one is a superb instrument. Bodies were made of two pieces of Honduran mahogany with a center seam, necks were three-piece with a rosewood fingerboard. This example, #187, has been played and has the signs of player use but not abuse. We got the guitar with Schaller tuners, & the tuner holes had been routed. We replaced the wood with a matching grain Mahogany and reinstalled the original tuners which were in the case. This outstanding collector piece is also a wicked sounding guitar. Comes with its original (well used) case with stickers from local DC clubs in which it was played. This is a one owner guitar that was purchased new from Washington Music Center in 1971. 

Condition: Good with some restoration

Serial Number: 187
