    500T in flying V

    I totally agree with what your drummer said. I had similar experience. When showing off/playing alone in front of my friends, they said V sounds a bit weird, like screaming frog tone without elegance, compared to the other guitars. But at the jam, my drummer(same thing heard from drummer?!) told...

    Flying V pickups not parallel to strings

    LOL, that looks very unique. Good job! You may take a look at mine on the other angle. Picture link: http://i.imgur.com/yVzXtXs.jpg Anyway, I like yours, too. :thumb:

    NGD: Gibson Custom Shop 70s Flying V VOS

    I guess it's same as yours. Nut width is 40mm, which is around 1.5 inches. On 12th fret, the width is 53mm, around 2 inches. Right, I think neck is heavy.

    Flying V pickups not parallel to strings

    I sliced off a chair silencer, cut down to quarters. Then placed them at side wall of each pickup. Like this: http://i.imgur.com/W0LBG6i.jpg I got that idea Michael Schenker did so.

    LP vs Explorer vs Flying V - Tone and Playability

    This is my own experience about playability. My first guitar was Flying V copy in 1988, then later I got genuine Gibson V in 1990. Since then, I played V shaped guitars only. In 2008, I realized I was too old to play heavy shape guitar, so tried several 'normal' looking guitars like LP and SG...

    To You, When Were the Most Progressive Years for Guitarists So Far?

    When Jimi Hendrix came out, and when Yngwie Marlmsteen came out to the world.

    What is going on here?

    I guess that's to keep the neck pickup horizontal against the body. My old flying V has a problem that one edge of pup kept on sinking down. Or, he just simply lost the screw on the mounting ring.

    If there is anything better than a Les Paul through a Marshall....

    Wow, now I'm realizing everyone has different taste. Though Vox is not my favorite, I have a good memory with AC30. Brian May would be sad with your thought. :o

    I love Fender, too. Best sounding in my opinion. To me, even Mesa Boogie or Orange sounds better than Marshall. Old Marshall is okay, but new marshalls are not my taste.

    Top Hats OR Speed Knobs?

    For woodys, top hats. For black&white, speed knobs.

    Does anyone actually like MinEtune?

    I like it. I got stomped by a lot of people a week or two ago though. But I still think it's useful at certain purposes.
