    Is it just me, or does the action on this Flying V look extraordinarily high on about the 8th photograph, where it is lying across the arms of a chair. I guess lying with only the body and headstock supported in that position would raise the action a bit, but it looks like you could slide your finger between the strings and the fretboard at about the 10th fret.

    If this happens to belong to one of the fellow MLP brethren, I mean no disparagement, but that photograph isn't very flattering... I'm just looking for a good deal on a V:)

    why not just ask him?

    I can not see the photos where I am, (will look later) but a guitar laying across the arms of a chair should not put enough weight/pressure on the neck to bend it forward to a noticeable difference in the action string/height.

    might just be one of those optimal conclusions?

    That looks about 3 or 4 times higher than my action on my LP :wow:
