NGDs: Gibson Flying V '98 Ser

I finally have the set. Gibson made the flying V '98 to commemorate 40 years since they came out.

Great. they suffer as many do in that the top leans out from you so that you can't see what you're doing with leaning over or pulling the guitar in with your arm or hand. The ES series is the worst. Heavy *and* leans away.

Anyway, I fix my Vs so that the top strap button is moved about inch up and to the left. And I wrap the strap around the front of the top wing. This makes it effortless to see what's going on.

Allen Collins

They are great when standing and for me make frets 5 and up where I usually stay. The 1-4 frets are there but feel more like you're playing a classical guitar. Many people say the guitar is unplayable when sitting down. Then others say you just hook the lower wing and you're good to go, like you were playing a classical guitar. I just shift my ass a little bit and let the guitar hang off my side just like if I was standing with the guitar and turning sideways from the hip.

All around great guitar.
