Gibson USA has released the Grace Potter Signature Flying V, one of the hippest tone machines to come down the pike in a very long time.
The guitar features a hand-sprayed Nocturnal Brown gloss nitrocellulose top finish and satin natural back, sides and neck, and cream-painted Lexan pickguard with custom silkscreened art deco border.
Grace Potter designed the look of the guitar herself. “I grew up around wood; my father is a sign maker and woodworker so I was thrilled to come to the Gibson factory and find that they took such pride in the quality of wood, color and craftsmanship. I chose the color and pickguard style based on an amalgamation of guitars I already owned – kind of creating my dream guitar. The pickguard is actually based on a cocktail napkin that I loved that I found somewhere on the road.”
