    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.:applause:

    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. :band:

    Really nice guitar to have fun with.
    And the price was just irresistible.
