Gibson launched the Flying V and Explorer models in 1958, as part of the company’s Modernist range. Fifty-six years on, the two remain stunning examples of guitar design. They are “rock'n'roll meets The Jetsons” (thanks for that soundbite, Mr Billy F. Gibbons!) and remain two of the most radical guitars ever made and still made.

The fretboard is where a heck of a lot of our guitaristic expression occurs. It’s where our fingers contact the strings to sound specific notes (of course), and that means that it’s an intersection between the physical and conceptual aspects of our playing.

When the record landed in stores in August 1980, there was no picture of the band on the LP sleeve. In fact, there was no picture at all.
