The Gibson Victory MV-10 was designed by Gibsons research and development department in Kalamazoo, Michigan, although only the earliest instruments were built there. By late 1981 production had moved to the Gibson Nashville plant. It was part of the Gibson Victory series of guitars and basses, and was described as follows...

The incredible Victory MV 10 produces a myriad of separate and distinct electric guitar tonalities; those voices that fill all the neds and requirements of the dedicated guitarist, and some that you have never heard before!

The Victory guitar bodies and neck/headstocks are crafted entirely of eastern hard rock maple

This produces an incredibly brilliant sustaining tone, because of that material's superior mass and density characteristics.

In order to outdo the Fender Stratocaster, the MVX pickups were specially designed to replicate single coil tones aswell as Gibsons characteristic humbucker tones.

One of the best Gibsons for the money IMHO. I need humbuckers for a MVX restoration, just neck and bridge. How different are these from early 80s dirty fingers. Or are they the same? Seriously underated guitar BTW.
