Someone offered (a pretty beat up) epi V as part of a trade for my epi korina explorer.
Can anyone tell me something about this one?
It is black, korina, Saein made from 2006...
How is the neck on this one say compared to my 1998 Unsung explorer? Etc

I've had two of both. Neck is pretty much the same.
Had them since '97, kept the natural V. I love how Ex's and Firebirds hang when standing up, but I love the V when playing sitting down. Let it straddle your leg, it pretty much stays there, no need to hold up the neck.

Plus (to me) nothing says Rock better than a Flying V.

That is why i love V's too. The Explorer gets no play Time sadly, nice guitar and really beautifull. That is why i opt for selling it and getting a V.
Mine is a 98 and i know that was a good year for the x and v models. His is 2006 Saein. Weird thing is, all of my epiphones are Unsung.... Never search ed for it but they just are. Not that this matters :rofl:
His V is really beat up, would be a refin candidate. It is a korina v, i like the string trough body ;)
It will definatly not be a one on one trade. Mine is in prestine condition.

My natural V has been my #2 (Patty Lou on the left has been my #1 since I got it in '01) since I got it. It's been quite modded but I'll stack it against any V, Gibson or otherwise....
