1985 Gibson Designer Series Flyer (side 1) - Artist Originals

A selection of unique art designs offered on the Explorer and Flying V guitars

Other Catalogues | Index | Next

The 1985 Gibson Designer Series flyer, showing the range of Artist Originals available for the Flying V and Explorer guitars. Artist Original guitars had a one-of-a-kind art design applied over a standard Ebony (black) or Alpine White basecoat. Even though each guitar was unique, there were six main styles available: Blue Splash, Wavelength, Swirl, Fireworks, Galaxy and Lido.

The Artist Originals were only listed in one price list (June '84) in which they were priced at $50 above that of a regular Flying V or Explorer.

No other guitar will be exactly like yours. Each is painted separately and initialed by the artist, so your instrument is a valuable, one-of-a-kind piece of art as unique and expressive as your music
