discussion with my dad

hey everyone
i recently had a discussion with my father of which style guitar i should buy, i had planned on buying a jackson king V KVXT, but he thought it would be fabulous to put the idea into by head that flying V's are out of style, we continued to discuss this, and i am now here to post a question for everyone... are Flying V's, Kelly's, and Rhodes etc. out of style??? and FYI 90% of the music i play is heavy metal, and metal core
i would appreciate a response on whether or not i am out of style, or if my dad is and is just messing with me

He's pretty obviously messing with you. That, or he's out of style.

There really is not a shape that you can say is in style. Everyone just kind of does what ever now though will you find some that are more common than other styles such as super strat shapes like ibanez and the classic les paul shapes. It all just comes down to what you would prefer, guitars are not a fashion statement, they are a tool.

Get whatever you like, who cares if it's in 'style.' Be the one to bring it back.

And it's not like Vs are even uncommon, anyway.

I think you should consider if a flying V is comfortable for you to play more than if it's 'out of style'.

Don't buy a guitar only because it looks good, buy it if it sounds good and feels comfortable for you.

V's have been around for 50 some years. People STILL play them, in and out of metal.

I personally don't like to play Vs or other pointy guitars- they are uncomfortable to me- but I think they're cool as hell. If you like it and you feel comfy playing one, go for it!

If you think it's cool, it is cool. If someone tells you it isn't, well to each their own.

I think anyone who focuses on style when they're buying a guitar are buying a guitar for the wrong ****in reason.

If you have a legitimate concern that a guitar is out of style, play for a few more years. Understand your instrument is not a fashion accessory.

In style or out of style doesn't mean anything any more. Half of the stuff that's in style now is in because it's retro or incinsere, which just means it wasn't in style. Being out of style is cool now.

Basically we found a loophole that lets you do whatever you want and still be hip.

I don't think any of the V shaped guitars were every really in style.

And I would never buy a guitar based on style or what's cool.

No, your dad clearly has sense. The only "nice" flying-V is the original Gibson one.

Ugh I hate the Gibson V. It just doesn't look right to me having rounded edges on what is really a pointy guitar by nature. Plus I don't dig the headstock.



That right there is a sexy V, would be better to me without the Floyd but meh. Personally I only like Vs as novelty guitars.
