The Flying V Heritage  - 1981 to 1984

This is the first reissue to be close to the original 1958 Flying V, they are made out of Korina (a Gibson trade mark for african Limba wood). Gibson came back to the raised plastic molded gold logo although it seems that it actually was silver on the originals). The wings are cut out of 2 or 3 pieces of wood with the veing running parallel to the neck intead of parallel to the edges as on the original 58's.
