Dave Davies - Gibson Flying V
In Guitar Player in 1977, Davies said: "When we arrived in L.A. a guy said, 'Come along, I'll take you to a store, and we'll have a look around.' And they had all these guitars, but I didn't like any of them. So I looked up on the top shelf and saw this dusty old case. I said, 'What have you got there?' They got it down, and I saw what I thought was a Flying V. I later found out that it was a Futura, which dates back to, like, '56 and had a slightly bigger body. Three days later I was using it on Shindig. I've still got it actually - it doesn't go out of the house."
Davies was mistaken, the Gibson Futura was actually the precursor to the Gibson Explorer.
