Blackmore is not thrash metal.
I’m sure I’m being trolled here but I’ll play along. Check this out and let me know if you can pick out any Strats in the bunch...
Sounds like some guitar, I can’t pick out strat or les Paul. But there’s bound to be one player out there who uses a strat for thrash.
Heavy metal then, but similar concept
If someone is really interested, there is this:
"and the SG I have to admit"
I used SG's for almost everything you mentioned!
I'm one of those guys that just cannot deal with the V's body shape, it is not ergonomic for my body!
The guys that like V's really seem to like, them, for good reasons.
It's a special taste!
That thing is nasty
G*dammit who said...?
Stop saying the L-word!!!
I’m already a Les Paul guy. I have a most excellent Strat as well but I can’t get enough of the LP. Part of it is my obsession with Billy Gibbons on ZZ Top’s 70s albums. I also love the way they feel. So slinky and it’s easy to just plug away at some awesome riff. Their lack of contour doesn’t bother me in the slightest.
How about a cigar box sized V
This ones for sale here in KC
My Jackson Rhoads custom. Dreams do come through. Build to the exact specs as the one Randy Rhoads had 3 months before he died.
$5000 order back in summer 1996 and it came with custom shop serial RR2772.
Partscaster Blackie serial 901881
Oh man that is too cool. I couldn’t play it but I sure love it.
I was in a band in the 80,s and they were telling me my strat was too harsh.
So I bought an 83 white V to satisfy them, it did. still have it under the bed somewhere
Ishidamien from the long running Japanese thrash band Sabbat ( not the british thrash band which is also awesome) in the band since 2006 plays a Strat style guitar IIRC.
Already have a ‘57 AVRI, but the Flying V is part of me in a way that the Strat never could be.
I see since I started this thread that many have gone the direction of the Rhodes style V. I have to say it’s not my cup of tea but I’m glad this thread has given V lovers a place to discuss the things they love. I am more of a fan of the classic Gibson style myself although I doubt I will ever get one. Mostly for financial reasons. I can only own so many guitars!
I have never owned a true V type guitar a la Albert King , but have owned various pickle stabber types:
A Cort Rhodes model..by far the best I ever had.... Sold it
A Rhodes model ...... sold it.....
Currently have a Jackson ....not sold yet....
So in the spirt of the thread, why. Well for me they are the most comfortable end easy to play when standing and moving around. I find them to be my goto for that. Sitting with them to play requires some gymnastics ....lol
Why Did I sell them, well I was deep into my deep blues phase and they just didnt fit. However I keep going back to them so lesson learned...
The Jackson is worried as I keep looking at it and trying to find a good scalloping sevice that wont put me in the poor house. But that's a different thread.
Ha! There’s always one...
I was just making sure you had one is all.
I played a Gibson V for the first time in my life at Tommy's in Everett a few days ago.
Gotta admit, it was a very nice playing guitar. I see why those who like 'em do.
