If you had your d'ruthers, and could make the choice between a brand new Schecter V-1 Platinum w/ EMG 57/66 combo or a used Gibson Flying V (the cherry colored one with the white pickguard and the passive pickups) - which would you choose?
Both are flying v's. Both are aesthetically pleasing to me. Both relatively the same price range.
I've not held the Gibson, but I know some of you have. I have two Schecter Solos and I like the neck on them but I don't know that the neck profile on the V-1 is the same as the Solo. Can't seem to find any comparison.
Note: I find that I don't like very thin necks.
Any thoughts? Thanks -
i love my gibson v. Granted, it's a mid 80's beast, no pick guard at all. I am not a fan of the schecters due to the fact that they are not as heavy as the gibbies. But again, the decision is up to you sir.
