OK, you can't tune this like a normal guitar. That's why the instructions tell you not to.

It won't stay in tune, because when the neck is so short, the strings need to be really loose to keep the same low pitch as a normal guitar. That's why the instructions say you're supposed to tune it up 3 half steps.

So, you can either tune it higher like they suggest, or you can use really thick strings.

I modded mine to have adjustable saddles, and then I put the thickest 6 strings from a 7-string pack on it (you need the adjustable saddles because the regular saddle isn't correct for a wound G, which is what you end up with with those strings). With those heavy gauges (13s), I can tune this guitar to regular pitch, and I've used it many times on stage in order to look like I'm a giant.

Is it a great guitar? No. But if you apply a little knowledge, you CAN get it to keep tune decently, which is what most of the complaints have been about.

You want something to stay in tune spend more Money, I have a Deluxe Fender Strat that has the hardest time staying in tune, 1st off most of these post are from kids just starting, I bought this for my daughter for x-mas and you get what you pay for, It's made of Plywood, The Pickup is decent and the scale of the guitar is part of the reason it does not stay in tune well, but if you stretch the strings good before going to town on it it stays in pretty good, I've been playing for 25 years and for a beginners setup it's perfect, this little package will make or break a beginning guitarist, If they really want to play they'll figure out how to get by with it, if not then they can burn it, all in all a good little starter kit and tuning is good practice, It's the 1st thing any beginner needs to learn before they can get into riffing chords,Scales, and Modes.

this guitar is god

By MrWinkles

from hell

I used this guitar on tour with Metallica and it rocks! I can play anything with this bad boy. It?s better than all my Gibson les Paul?s. The reason I gave this 5 stars overall is because once I dropped it on my cat and he died. Awe poor Mr. Winkles. If you don?t own a cat I suggest buying this guitar!

Not Worth It

By DudeGuy-ZIn1h

from TN

This guitar is great for collecting things but it is horrible to play. When I bought this I thought it was something that you could least play for ten minutes in tune but you couldn't play at all. It is a cool collecting item but not worth the price.

Very Cool Guitar Package

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I tried this little thing, and at first I was laughing at it. Then I played it. This is a cool guitar, and I would recommend it to anyone who travels alot, or is a beginner on a budget. Put portability isn't the only plus; this guitar sounds pretty good, for it's price. The amp has some cool distortion, which I didn't expect. Though not too easy to play, it's great for the price. Oh, and looks cool too.

I dont own this guitar, but I played it once at a friends house. Before I saw it in person, I knew itd be small, but wow-- it really is small! It plays well, the time that i used it anyway. kind of hard to keep in tune though. I suggest the suggestion for tuning they have up. I hope to be buying one of my own soon, maybe as a birthday present for myself (teenager-15 yr old) and if youre considering it, go for it. This is just my opinion. It's a good travel. I own a number of guitars and none are as small, but ive wanted a travel guitar for a while now and the one that really pops out at me is the vee wee...so again, go for it!

Don't buy this

By Fabrizio Scarazoni

from Providence RI

See all my reviews

I thought "Wow! A Flying V for so little? I can't belive this!" I bought it and I must say...don't make my mistake. The strings it comes with suck so I changed them to some decent strings. I played them in for a few days expecting them to stop going out of tune but I was wrong. This V never stays in tune. So one day I decided to plug into the amp(The amp is pretty decent as far as battery powered travel amps go) and when I was to plug the cable into the guitar the jack was broken and I couldn't plug it in. After a minor hom repair I got this curse off of me by selling it.

Sweet Guitar!

By rockin'riffs 22

from Michigan

I just started recording with my wee flying vee, and man was I impressed! It sounds great, looks awesome and was worth every penny. The gig bag was a bit weak. The amp is totally cool, runs on 9 volts has a treble knob and a volume knob and a jack for phones, one of the best amps for its size I've ever seen. this is one tiny axe with A LOT of power. I've had it for like 5 months and I love it!
