Gibson has once again partnered with Adam Jones to release the latest electric guitar in the pair’s long line of signature instruments: the Gibson Custom Shop Adam Jones Flying V Collector’s Edition.

Fans first laid eyes on the mystery V way back in January 2022, when the Tool maestro took one to stage during what was then the band’s first show in almost two years.
