The asking price is maybe $325,000 too much? I suggest you read the listing and see if you agree.

When you consider there were only ~100 Flying Vs made between 1958 and 1959, that price is not so astronomical.

I saw a '58 V about 20 years ago. Original owner who finally sold it for $50k and thought he made a great deal.

It was an exciting day for sure.

Too many non-original parts to justify that demand.

I agree. $350,000 seems like a price for an all-original, but with the modifications and hack repairs not so much.

As they say about George Washington's axe - The handle's been replaced 3 times and the head twice, but it's still the original axe.

I never did warm up to V's. The world's most expensive lawn dart as far as I'm concerned. YMMV

I’m not a v guy myself. They play easy and for a true rocker of the 80s angry white boys music they’re great. One buddy of mine wouldn’t play anything else. Don’t care about the looks but trying to sit and play one while it try’s to escape from my lap doesn’t work for me.

No point in spending 350K for a picked over Gibson when you've got a pristine Rocket Roll !

Jarts anyone ?

Stratmanx, that Ibanez is definitely a cool guitar!

I kind of dig the korina V, but just for the novelty. For 1/100th of the cost of that 58, my old Epi Korina V is a fair enough facsimile.

Yes. Electric tools hadn't been invented yet, so the folks at Gibson used a hammer and a soup spoon to do the work.

My mom used to get so mad at me for wrecking the soup spoons.

I showed this guitar to my wife. She said no.
