Re: Gibson flying V
Damn Elcid, that is cool! A 24 fret Gibson V, I've never seen one or heard of it.
Joejoe, have you played one yet or you just digging the looks? My neighbor was selling his house this Summer and wanted to put all his gear in my basement until the house sold. I had a bunch of guitars and amps to mess around with for over a month. One was a Gibson Faded V. I've always thought Vs looked cool and this was a great way to try one without buying - in my house with my gear, with no salesman hounding me, and no return shipping if I didn't like it. Perfect! I ended up really liking it and am considering getting one or making him an offer on his. If you're thinking about a Gibson V, definitely look at the Faded. It's mahogany, has the same pickups, etc., as the 67 RI, just doesn't have all the paint or finish or whatever. It's nice! And you can play it sitting down, you just have to do the classical position. I play standing 99% of the time now, and it was very comfortable standing, so that isn't an issue for me.
Edit - I was just going to let you know that "someone" is blowing them out for $486! But I noticed you are in the Netherlands so they might not ship over there. PM me if you want to know who is selling them for that price, it's a steal!
