I think this article should be merged with Flying V. Design 11:27, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

IMO Gibson Flying V is the correct name for the merged article, but I agree that a merge should take place. Andrewa 20:42, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
I don't see anything worth merging - lots of POV and unsourced info. I would not object to removing the content and redirecting it to this article. PJM 21:26, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Popular culture entry - dubious relevance[edit]

"The Flying V was featured on House, episode 1 of Season 4 entitled Alone."

It's hard not to be flippant and just say "so?". House may be a currently popular television show, but this note will only be interesting to... fans of House. ANd to no one when House finally runs its course as TV shows do. The Flying V has been seen in numerous television shows and films over the decades. It's a cultural icon, of course it's going to turn up on TV. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Biofh (talkcontribs) 00:23, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunatly, (or fortunatly), it isn't up to individuals to determine what they think is relavent to Wikipedia. One could make the same argument you did for a lot of articles on wikipedia. Next time, it would be wise to discuss deletion edits on the talk page BEFORE deleting them. The bigger picture here was missed: to begin a list of the flying V in popular culture so that a demonstration of its popularity in culture can be made. In fact, this is what you argue above: that it IS a cultural icon. There has not been a consensus reached in the wikipedia community on whether or not "popular culture" entries constitute trivia (WP:TRIVIA). So, until there is a consensus, I am in favour of leaving such reference on. Perhaps collecting a list of popular culture appearances on this talk page first, and then posting them on the main page might be a viable option.|T 14:49, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

You could start a section of how this type of guitar has become more of a cliche because of its increase in popularity, especially in the heavy metal scene. I mean, it would seem this guitar is played by everyone. That seems a little bit notable.Zaruyache (talk) 01:41, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Only five in existence.[edit]

There are only five Flying V's in the world, it wouldn't be too bad to write a small list of all the owners. I know Damon Albarn has one but I'm not sure who else. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:11, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Epiphone V Bass[edit]

I know Epiphone had made these in the past, I have one, but are there any sources that say that Epiphone still currently produce these like the artical states? I thought they were produced around 2001. Skullbird11 (talk) 15:04, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

2011 Flying V Melody Maker[edit]

There also exists a limited edition Flying V model in the Melody Maker economical line, with a single humbucker pickup and simple perl neck inlay. (talk) 01:26, 20 February 2013 (UTC)


"Flying V" redirects to this article, but "Flying V" could also refer to the V Formation seen in birds. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:00, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
