Albert King Flying V guitar

Rare Electric Guitar

Albert King was an American blues guitarist and singer, and a major influence in the world of blues guitar playing. On December 11th, 2012, it was announced that King would be posthumously inducted into the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


Albert King, whose persona was so intertwined with the Flying V that his gravestone in Arkansas has one emblazoned on it, in many ways Albert King had the first and last word on the instrument. A true original, his trailblazing Southpaw blues was powered by a 1958 korina V (known as Lucy to BB’s Lucille), flipped upside down.


His trademark aggressive bends would influence the likes of Clapton, SRV, Otis Rush and many others, shaping the sound of the blues for generations to come.
