COOL GEAR ALERT: Gibson 7-string Flying V

IK Multimedia's MODO BASS

As if Gibson’s 7-string Explorer wasn’t enough, now they’ve announced a 7-string Flying V as well. I have a feeling a lot of pointy guitar lovers are going to be playing a lot of heavy riffs some time soon.

Specs include a set of EMG active pickups (a 707 in the neck and an 81-7 in the bridge), 12″ radius fretboard, solid mahogany body, mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, and slick gold hardware on an ebony black finish. I dig the stripped-down look of the inlay-free fretboard and the Steinberger gearless tuners.
