This baby here rawks! I'm a happy owner of the Explorer counterpart, as well as a Gibson and ESP Explorers. Despite the Goth Exp and V have slightly lower frets than the ESP, they don't hinder my playing much at all.The two more expensive models that I have are both loaded with EMG pickups, but with the Goth, I decided against it! The stock pickups work wonders in these, though I tried the EMGs on the Explorer. Surprisingly, I didn't do the guitar a favour! I definitely suggest sticking with the stock pickups.The only complaint is the position of the neckside strap button, as it causes the neck to dive. I don't really like making new holes to my guitars, but I guess it's an inevitable evil if you want the neck not to dive. But if you don't have a problem with drilling new holes, move the button. I feel this point doesn't fault the guitar. If you like the V-shape and one is within your reach, don't hesitate!

I bought one of these nice Flying V's less than a year ago. The cicuitry is perfect, and it is extremely comfortable. The only thing I am unhappy about is that I have less than a year with it, and it has a major crack in the neck. I KNOW I haven't damaged it because I keep it under lock and key, and I would never hurt my guitar. I have slighty taped the body against a wall or something, but never enough to put a fracture in the neck!

As I said earlier, DUUUUUUDE!!!!! This guitar is BEAST(really good)!!! The satin neck is so smooth and is a shredder's DREAM! It's really light and easy to play and the lack of inlays looks awesome; I was suprised how easy it was to play without them(use the side dots). If you got one of these and put some EMG's in it...Good G-d...the devastation would be massive...no survivers... Anyways, this guitar is really good, and at a price like this, there's no reason not to buy it. Excellent.
I recently purchased this guitar. Here's the long and short of it: This guitar plays very well. It weighs much lighter than you might think. Has low action and holds it's tune like a champ. The only downside I can see is that it isn't very well balanced. So when you take your hand off the neck, the head drops towards the floor. However, the pickups on this sound awesome!!! I was worried that this might have a shrill sound...but I was wrong. The pickups are hot. They are a little louder than my stock strat. And they don't compromise the tone. Definitely a great guitar for the price. If your looking for a flying v...this one gets my personal stamp of approval!!!
Mate this guitar rocks, got it yesterday and what a great buy. I originally had a korina flying v but I got this one as it broke. Brilliant value for money and it's so easy to play, sherdding is no problem and as for standing and sitting with it it's easy. It is a light guitar but the headstock hasn't weighed it down with my strap, and as for sitting down, it's just semthing you get used to after time. I dropped it in to C and B and it rocked, it can handle heavy dropped strings so well. Great buy
It looks great but it plays like it was made cheap.I will probably sell it and try to get a Schecter.It's worth the money you pay since its only 400 bucks but for the same price you can get a much better guitar.
It's good for any kind of music. Especially metal!
I do not own this guitar, but I've played it several times. Many people say that the head is heavy, but it's merely the body is so light. The body feels like it has a plastic shell over it, which seems a little cheap. I usually like wide, flat necks such as Jackson (which I own), but this round, fat neck felt really good for some reason. It can't be explained. It sounds decent enough plugged in, but doesn't have a great deal of sustain and sounds a bit shallow and muddy. If it were just a little heavier and more solid it would be a perfect guitar.
I just got this guitar in last weak, and I am very happy with what I got. The sound is very nice and clean, and the strings it comes with are not that bad (for my purposes). It is a lot lighter than i thought it would be, and although it may look huge when you take it out of the box (I'm used to stratocasters) it really is easy to hold and play. It comes with grips on the bottom so you can play easily sitting down, and I've had no problems standing up while playing. For the price, this baby is amazing quality, and looks even better.
I got this guitar 2 years ago for Xmas from my wife and I play it all the time. Great sound, could be a lil puchier though. Thinkin of puttin an EMG 81 in the bridge. Like how lite it is. Little unbalanced. No biggy. Easy to get used to. Very easy to play. Playability is a must, and this things got it!
Being a Static-X fan, Wayne Static inspired me to buy a V. So I searched the net and found a Wayne Static signature. Not wanting to pay the extra price I purchased this one. Great decision. I love this V and I had no problem adjusting to the heavy-set neck. The tone quality was great, it stays in tune, and overall looks great. I strongly urge you to buy this V.
I've had this guitar for almost a year and I wouldn't give it up for anything. Pickups sound great, although I'm probably going to replace them. I recommend buying this guitar because it's light-weight and easy to play, great lead guitar, I'm looking to buy the one with the Floyd Rose next.
