    looking for a gibby v. The main requirement is an ebony fretboard and decent condition with case.
    I’ll even consider one of the robot guitars.
    I’ll pass on stuff with a trem or vibrola.
    I’ll pass on richlite fretboards.
    I’d prefer to have one with the moon inlays, but show me what you got.

    Thanks!

    GL! I don’t know if they make V’s with Ebony boards that aren’t Customs or Gothic series- isn’t it usually Rosewood?

    Customs are 4699 new, a Gothic can be found for under 2K, but there aren’t alot of them out there.

    I found one. Importing from France.
    There are a few iterations of Vs with ebony fretboards. The 2002 faded V with Crescent moon inlays, the 2008 robot V, just a few examples.
    This can be locked.

    For a very long time the standard 67 reissue V as well as 76 explorer came with an ebony fretboard only in the white color option. The red and black ones had rosewood.

    There are also the Voodoos, the Tribals (if you paint over the awful graphic) and the Shred Vs!
