Gibson Flying V's

Recommended Posts

Hey all

I just needed to get this out of my skin, but am I the only one that thinks Flying V's look amazingly rediculous? For some reason I can't take them seriously, they just look so odd

They've always looked like Gibson was going for a futuristic look with the Flying V, but ridiculous? Nah!

Have you seen the guy in the Black-Eyed Peas, his is backwards, like an arrow

Now that is ridiculous.

Listen to Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown

Sorry dude but Randy never played a Gibson "V". That is a Jackson guitar, they do look some what alike until, you look at the headstock. B)

I know that this thread is about Gibson V's, but IMO, the Jackson Randy Rhoads V is also pretty sweet.

Randy Rhoads could've made a cheap plastic guitar sound good.

Are you not a fan of the tone of the Jackson Randy Rhoads V?

i'm a fan of Randy Rhoads mastery of the guitar.

as far as what guitar he used, no.

If I may ask, what about that particular guitar do you not like?

i don't know where you're going with this, but it's just not the guitar. there are so many variances in setting up a sound and you could spend 2 lifetimes trying to perfect and still wind up scratching your ass and saying wtf over and over.

i will say that i was in a group where the guitarist had that particular model and it

wasn't the best sound i've ever heard. now is saying that, it could've have been a myriad of things, mostly his set-up, which being a drummer i have enough sound problems of my own.

i will also say that the current guitarist i'm working with uses, among many, a Steve Vai JEM Ibanez that in my opinion blows the Jackson out of the water. again it could be how well he dials it in. you may get it and throw it out the window :D
