Own a piece of history from Dave Davies guitar collection. Heritage Auctions is listing this 1958 Gibson Flying V, The Kinks guitarist played on numerous studio albums, on stage and T.V. appearances. He first purchased the guitar during the band's first U.S. Tour in 1965. It remained in his collection until 1992.
It is described in the official listing as
"The Famous Dave Davies-Kinks Flying V. The V heard around the world! Refinished and with a repaired heel crack, this Kinks V is well documented. The components are correct. The PAF pickups are undisturbed. The ABR-1 Bridge is correct and original to this instrument. The pickguard was not removed but the electronic components appear to be original, though surely they were removed for the finish restoration. The Gibson logo is broken as seen in the photos. The original frets show moderate to average playwear."
Davies himself wrote the letter of authenticity for it and bidding starts on July 1st. The last time this guitar was sold at auction in 1995, it went for over $33,000. Safe to say when the gavel drops this time, it will be substantially higher. Get more details and pictures of this classic Korina HERE
