    Anybody here play a Gibson Flying V?

    I have been thinking about getting one for several reasons

    1.Lighter than a Les Paul
    2.Stop Tail Piece
    3.Looks really cool
    4.Cheaper than a Les Paul
    5.Even cheaper than an SG
    6. Good ol Gibson tone and i can still upgrade the pickups if needed.
    7. I love the 67 reissue look, especially the Ebony with the white pickgaurd

    If you have owned a V or own one now drop a line , Id like to hear from someone with experience. Ive even thought about the faded but dont care for the worn cherry.

    my bro's got a white one, they are badass. the thing plays like buttah.

    also when your standing up or sitting down, putting the V in between your legs helps stabilize the guitar for when your doing the more difficult types of licks.

    Find one in a store that hasnt been played to much and buy it.

    I was going to buy a gibson, but when I tried it, the thing played like shit. So, just for the hell of it I picked up the epiphone gothic v. I was surprised how much better the fretboard was, and it even had a rubber matting on the lower wing, to rest on your leg. And it sounds METAL!! (plus about $700 less)

    I bought an Epi '58 Korina Flying V and upgraded the pickups to Gibson '57 Classics.

    Man, that guitar SMOKES!

    I had one of those rare (yet not really expensive) gibson V2 where even the pickups were V shaped. plyed nice, but V's are so uncomfortable to me. mostly sitting for the obviuos reason of the shape, but even standing, I never felt real comfy. This was over 20 years ago though.
    I SURVIVED TEXAS LINKERS WEEKEND I, II, III, IV and VI and VII.barely made it to VIII time to slow down
    I musta had a broken middle finger for V

    I don't have a Flying V, I am strictly a Strat man, but if I were to have a different guitar it would definitely be a Flying V.

    I'm a huge Michael Schenker fan.

    Check out this "V" I recently restored.
    It was alot of work, but the hardest part was having to send it back to it's rightful owner.
