You are looking at a custom built Gibson inspired Flying V (Michael Schenker influenced). This non-branded half black / half white Flying V guitar has Mahogany body, custom paint/graphic, assembled and completed by my luthier Eric Chaz (luthier to the stars here in Los Angeles). Here is breakdown of all that went into it.

The body started life as a $300 Chinese built guitar. Nut width appears to be 1.7ā€.

Then I literally gutted it down to a husk, all electronics pulled and trashed. Then my luthier Eric installed:

* Gibson dirty fingers pickups: $400 (this is what I paid for the bridge/neck set).

* Kluson vintage style 3x3 (locking) tuners: $100.

* All additional electronics, pots, etc: $75 (Warmoth USA).

* $300 additional labor - Eric (he is the best!) then polished and leveled the frets, set up guitar, and intonation. The work he did to the fretboard is phenomenal. In my humble opinion Iā€™d say it rivals my Gibson V fretboard. I was planning to replace the nut and bridge, however Eric and his assistant Billy assured me that those remaining parts were solid.

So as you can see I have a lot invested into this guitar which is why I'm still losing money at price listed. I have too many guitars, and am selling off several to help pay off an unexpected medical bill.

Gibson Dirty Fingers pickups are very hot, they roar like a beast. Kluson vintage style Locking Tuners for excellent tuning stability, 500k pots,

I'm extremely happy with how it turned out, however I have to sell to pay off unexpected medical bills. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Happy to answer and explain process. Sadly, guitar does not come with a case.

Thanks for looking!
