Gibson Guitar of the Month - Shred V

Gibson USA’s new Shred-V Flying-V, the Guitar of the Moth for August 2008, takes the style and attitude of the fearsome Flying V a step further. Two EMG 85 pickups deliver high-output, screaming tone, perfect for aggressive hard rock and metal, and a new Kahler 221 5k tremolo system allows stable tuning and dive bombs. The Shred-V is outfitted with black chrome hardware, and an ebony finish that captures every detail and sharp style of the Flying V. The Neck is one-piece mahogany with Gibson’s traditional Flying V profile - A hybrid between the standard ‘50s rounded contour and the ‘60s slim taper profile. An ebony fingerboard with black acrylic dot inlays unique only to the Shred-V. Locking Grover tuners keep the guitar in tune when pushing the Kahler tremolo system to its limits.
