Howdy all, long time no see. A bunch of us recently picked up "Machine Head" Flying V's for $99. This site had a deal for the first 100 people, so for $99 we all said WTF! And we got a free Thrash CD out of the deal. http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/pro...ead-bloodstone-diamonds-cd-guitar-bundle.html So this shows up. Popped it open to find wrapped goodness. My first "V" Complete with "Machine Head" logo. Wow, "it's not an LP" headstock? LOL It's a nice Indonesian specimen. Cool bolt-on job. And all the usual Epi case candy plus the CD! So right off it needs a set-up. It has the usual mile-high string heights and the frets might need rubbed? They look a little ripply. The fit and finish are just fine. No scratches, dings, orange peels or anything negative. All told this seems like a very cool guitar for $99! It sounds good, but is a little odd for me to play, not being an LP.
