    Just saw this on SSO and had to share: I wonder how it sounds.

    I'm blown away with how incredible this guitar sounds. This is the longest I have been able to put it down since I finished it. :lol: I haven't even intonated and the action is all over the place. haha Elysian really outdid himself on the pickup. It's 12.5kΩ with a big neodymium bar magnet...

    Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V Custom Outfit I'm always happy when a short scale guitar gets a Floyd. There just aren't that many. This looks sexual. For personal preference I wouldn't have the massive double-sided pickguard or the EMG's, but fuck it, it ain't my sig! This thing looks rad...

    Just saw this and some in here might like it :) Is everybody jumping on Fishman pickups nowadays?
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I've actually got a fly-in gig next month, 8/5. I'm playing with my old band in a benefit thing for some friends. The Guitar - I'm taking my Root Tele on the plane. I've flown with an acoustic before, so I just need to call ahead to make sure I can get space in a cabin closet on the...

    Here's the deal: I'm tuned to B-standard on my Flying V, D'Addario Baritone Light's(13-62). But i'm experiencing binding, in the nut, with the low B-string. I know, that the problem could be resolved by filing the nut, but I really don't want to mess It up, if I decide to go back to a higher...

    ...And it's a fucking Epiphone. GRRR. https://m.thomann.de/gb/epiphone_brendon_small_snow_falcon.htm?gclid=CJLYypmP1dACFZUYGwodUYMPzQ I really wish I'd had money when the Gibson version was kicking about new. That was a beautiful guitar, even if the scale length wouldn't be my first choice.

    I tried lower the action a bit today, and suddenly the G/B/E strings just fucking stops when I do harmonics. :mad: And YES I DID RAISE THE ACTION AGAIN! So dont ask if I reset my setup. I did! And the problem was STILL there. I raised it more than before, so it's unplayable at this action, but...
  10. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm getting a bit bored of the stock BB Pro's in my V, so i'm guessing it's time for a new set of pup's. Style of playing will be sludge/doom ala Crowbar, Down and perhaps a bit of old school swedish death. I've considered a set of 81/85's, but I don't like the idea of messing too much with the...

  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Am I on the right track if I say that Flying Vs are generally very light, while Explorers are heavy?? That kinda puts my interest backwards beacause I would rather have an Explorer, but most Vs I've tried have been light, and most Explorers have been heavy. They are basically the same thing...

    I might be the only one stoked for this on this board but I also discovered G&R way before they became popular and have been a long time fan, well of the original line up that is as once Adler left they starting going down the drain and completely flushed after Slash and Duff left. Anyway if...
  14. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So as the story goes I was talking to a guy I work he said he had a guitar that belonged to his brother and his brother died years ago and would like to have it re-finished, upgraded and playable (which it was far from when I got it). I told him I wasn't anything special but I would gladly do...

    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...

    Ok who is going to this shin dig? This will be my first time going this far for a concert (flying out of Chicago friday). Anybody else here? Where is the after party at?
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've been on quite a roll lately. First I scored a 5150 for an obscene price. The 5150 replaced my 6505+ 112 combo, which I turned around and put up for sale / trade. I ended up trading it straight up for a Faded Cherry Gibson Flying V. I've been wanting a gibson syle flying V for quite some...

    I've always wanted a Danelectro in my arsenal just for that unique sound. Some dude on reddit buit this and has apparently built a bunch of other styles all with the actual Danelectro body construction. As most of you are aware of, I love flying V's probably more than I should but hey, at...
