Wiring Harness for Gibson USA Flying V • Vintage Drifted Bumblebee or Black Beauty
This is our handwired harness for your Gibson Flying V. We build these with vintage drifted Bumblebee or Black Beauty capacitors and CTS' best pots to give you the most authentic vintage tone available in a harness today. To learn more about drifted caps and why we use them, read the blog post here.
The pots are CTS' finest 500k vintage-taper models with brass posts and shafts. We build each harness by hand on our custom mounting boards to guarantee that the pots and switch are properly spaced for the Flying V.
We offer this harness in both the 1958 and 1967 layouts. Typically, Bumblebees are used on the ‘58, and Beauties on the ‘67, but we will build either model with your choice of cap.
Please make your selection from the menu at the top of this description. The '67 layout fits new Flying Vs.
This is a complete assembly, including toggle switch and jack, pre-wired and ready to install.
Wiring diagram included. Made in USA.
A note about our custom mounting boards. We make these from repurposed scraps of material that otherwise would have been discarded. The material will vary from low-cost fiberboard to high-end multiply plastic, to salvaged vinyl records we find in thrift shops. Be assured that these boards do not add to the cost of our harnesses.
