In 1969, @JimiHendrix custom-ordered a left-handed Gibson Flying V directly from Gibson. Used during the Band of Gypsys era, the following year Hendrix’s Gibson Flying V was made forever famous during his performance at the Isle of Wight Festival at Afton Downs on August 31, 1970
The Jimi Hendrix™ 1967 SG Custom features a Murphy Lab Aged Polaris White finish and aged gold hardware. Only 150 guitars will be created as part of this very special run, hand-made by the expert luthiers and craftspeople of the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
Jimi was not monogamous when it came to guitars, and he didn’t always play his SG or Flying V on stage. But in his more contemplative moments before a show, or when he really needed to channel his inner Clarksdale… he often turned to the weighty tone of his Gibsons. #Gibson
