Gibson Victory MV2 and MVX

1981 Gibson (Rosetti, UK) catalogue page 5

Close up of the Victory MVX headstock markings

Page 5. Image and specifications for the Gibson Victory MV-2 and Victory MV-X electric guitars. The majority of guitar images included in this catalogue differ from those being used at the same time in US publicity material - there is very little crossover, perhaps sugesting that Rosetti took it's own publicity photographs, rather than re-using images directly from Gibson as had always been done in the past. The two guitars shown here are clearly different from those in the pre-owners and owners manuals, both published in the US in 1981. The MV2 shown has the standard zebra striped Magna II bridge pickup, rather than the all-black example pictured in the US publicity, and the MV-X uses a rather unusual slanted font on the headstock and truss rod cover (enlarged, right); highly unusual, and again not seen elsewhere in Gibson literature.

These two models were very much the stars of this catalogue, appearing in colour on the front cover of this brochure.

1981 UK prices were as follows: Gibson Victory MVII, £649; MVX, £699 (Candy Apple Red, Twilight Blue), £725 (Antique Cherry Sunburst).
