This sheet with central image has two fold-out panels with specifications for four models: the Victory MVII and MVX guitars, and the Victory Standard and Artist basses. As with other Victory series literature, the key message was that these guitars could replace (both in terms of tone and usability) numerous other guitars, by Gibson and other makers. On the winners podium at the back of the image, the Victory MV-X takes first prize over the silhouetted Peavey T-30/T-60 and Fender Stratocaster. The Red Victory MVX shown is fitted with Gibson's optional Super Tune vibrola, one that added $200 to the price of a model with stop tailpiece (see Gibson Victory pricing).
Guitars with silver and blue finishes tend to show more yellowing over time than other finishes specifically red or sunburst. Today silver Victory Standard basses and Twilight Blue MVX guitars look significantly different than in the image above - see for example this 1981 victory Standard, and this 1981 Victory MVX. The specifications above are largely unchanged from those previously issued in the 1981 pre-owners manual and owners manual.
