Great guitar. Outragous price. I have it, Played it, freaked out cuz its the same as my Gibson V. The Graphics is what you're payin for mostly. if you collect Hendrix stuff. GET THIS. If you just wanna V get a plain gibson V.
I like this guitar. A definate must have for collectors, but not for someone who wants to play it a lot. It sounds like any other flying V. cool if your a collector with alotta money, if not, get a regular Flying V
I can bet you that not one person below me in the reviews owns this guitar. It is the exact same as a custom shop Flying V, going for more than 4 times less than this thing. Jimi's paintjob was hand-painted, this thing was sprayed on. and the pickups, for God's sake are '57 classics...sold in any adequate music store. It doesn't even have to be a custom job, buy an '01 Flying V, swap out the ceramic humbuckers, and put in 57's, and it sounds EXACTLY the same. Marvel at Gibson's poor attempt at a publicity grab. (Nothing at all against Gibson, I myself own a Flying V, and love it.) But this thing is ridiculous, bottom line.
I think everyone has been hyped about this guitar, but there are much better guitars for a fraction of the price. The paint job is very cool, but the guitar itself feels just like a normal old Flying V. If you want this guitar, start saving up. My advice, buy the best possible Flying V, and get your own custom paint job.
This is Exactly what I wanted from this guitar!!! It's simply amazing and the feel is so smooth making it easy to shred on the spot!!! This Guitar has it all, the design, the sound and the feel of the working god himself. The pickups are very fuzzy and phsycadellic like the man himself, no wonder there's limited quantity on this thing it's simply stunning!!! If you can afford this, buy it because it's worth every penny.
When I opened the case containing the Gibson Jimi Hendrix Flying V for the first time, my eyes popped out and my jaw dropped. Stunning work, a great piece of original art. If there was any flaw at all, it would be the head stock, it was not copied to the exact original, but I can overlook that detail. If you want one of these and have the money, don?t hesitate, just buy it, you won?t regret it!
