Online music retailer recently wowed us with a handful of exclusive Gibson offerings, including a Pelham Blue SG, a ‘60s Les Paul Flame Top in Bourbon Burst and a Silver Mist Firebird I electric guitar.

Now the retailer has added one more mouth-watering Gibson to the pile – a Flying V Tribute with a not-too-shabby Worn Olive Drab satin finish.

The guitar features a mahogany body, mahogany Slim Taper neck and rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets and acrylic dot inlays.

The guitar comes with a gigbag for $1,299. To pick one up, fly over to zZounds.
