Gratuitous V shot
Man, all this "V" talk making me GAS real bad.....Wolf Hoffman would approve!
Of course Wolf Hoffmann still has his beloved Gibson Flying V and he still loves it to the end of time - he knows why.
This is maybe one of the best arguments playing a Flying V - in my opinion but Wolf is one of my biggest idols and he is one hell of a guy ( beste Grüße Wolf \m/ )
Here´s the man himself playing that great song.
Life is good,
Original look and other famous guys that play...Jimi, Hendrix and Lenny Kravitz. It could be the looking cool factor.
But also, you have the flying V variants like Randy Rhoad. I love RR.
I agree on playing one sitting down, I hate it when it slips off.
Here´s my knock off sitting in a bunch of his Vs xD
Yeah, it is good old Rudolf Schenker. He was way more than that these days (about 120 last time counting them all).
All the best,
He is wearing silly boots.
It is a family thing xD
Many don´t know that Michael and Rudolf have a sister called Barbara, also a musician (guitar) and singer. Not that famous though
All the best,
No way for her to get famous what with them taking her boots all the time.
Good to know, I'll have to add that to my list.
Not mentioned outright, but alluded to: It is iconic.
I want a guitar that has some history. I want what I couldn't get in the '60s. That's just me. So that is a Gibson. That's a Les Paul. That's an ES-335. And yes, that's a Flying V. I just recently added one to my group, and it lives up to my higher expectations.
I've had a few Dean Vs but could only play them standing up. Sitting down using that "between the legs" stance was incredibly awkward and uncomfortable.
I could never look this cool.
well, for one they can fly, says so right in the name
I played a Dean V and I don’t see how it’s possible to play one of those with the upper wing rising up in your way like that.
Odd that he was from Indiana just outside Cincinnati.
Great tune. Thanks for sharing.
What really annoys me about the Gibson Flying V is how roundy the ends and headstock are. If you're going to make it V-shaped, make it more pointy! I dislike the weird pickguard shape too. I like V's by other manufacturers more.
To answer the question in the OP...In a word>>>EVERYTHING!!!
I dig the Jackson Rhoads shape and my custom is a identical version of Randy Rhoads last Jackson Rhoads which he got 3 months before he died.
I had a Ibanez Racket Roll V in sunburst and then a Explorer but never a Gibson V though.
If the made a 3/4 size v, I might be into it
