Style is subjective. For me, flying v's and weird pointy guitars are lame as fuck, but they might not be for you or someone else. If you like it get it, not everyone is going to like the guitar you buy, all that matters is that you do.

neat to look at. uncomfortable as hell to play for any length of time. just try sitting down and playing it for 5 minutes. not bad if your standing but, are you gonna spend eternity standing? most of your time with it will be seated practice/jamming.
if it were a conversation piece on my wall, i'd get one. playabiity? i couldn't find it comfortable. if you care more about how people see you play vs. how they hear you play... by all means... get one.

you practice sitting down most of the time?

i do occasionally but it's good to practice the way you will be playing. plenty of players perform sitting down though so if that's what you do, cool.

i find V guitars very comfortable to sit with. people doing it wrong.


this is how you sit with a V. (that's not me)


this guy sat like that with a les paul all the time.

usually i'm sitting. ( still recovering from injuries sustained a little while ago that keep me from spending a whole lot of time on my feet). i spend most playing time on acoustics. appreciate the free tip, in a few years when completely healed, i might just take you up on it.

Yeah, V's definitely aren't out of style, especially in metal. So if you want one, get one. Even if it is, I doubt anybody would make fun of you for playing a V.

Your dad's a knob. All parents are, especially when they know shit about guitars.

I almost bought a mint 1986 Ibby Roadster, with an edge yesterday for 200 bucks, but the account holder of the bidding website I'm on told me it was ugly, and wasn't better than a shitty chinese strat. As such, I couldn't get a bid on, and some lucky bugger bought it for less that 200 bucks.

Any many who dares say these are out of style obviously doesn't understand style.
Honestly though just buy what you like the look of and **** everyone else. I play B.C.Rich's pointiest guitars, people on here think they look ridiculous for the most part but I think they are beautiful and will continue to use what I like regardless because its MY guitar, not theirs.

So you're going to just call the band shit after listening to it for 20 seconds?

Anyway, its going off-topic.

I like words and lyrics, screaming just gives me a freaking headache like no other.

My take after I listened to Sylosis' "Empyreal" and "After Lifeless Years": the band has an overall style that reminds me of metal from the 1990s, except the vocals. The lead vocalist screams 90% of the time (more intelligibly than most screamers) and sings 10% of the time. His voice isn't that bad for metal- he should exchange those percentages.

I had a dean V a long time ago, it would be worth a lot now. I wouldn't get another V though. Much prefer a strat style. The upper fret access can be great on some of them though.

I use to have a Douglas RR copy, was probably one of the most comfortable guitars I have ever played while sitting down. The biggest reason I got rid of it was because it was so big *length wise* that I kept smacking the headstock and the upper wing on everything.

Thank you! I watched a video of theirs on youtube months ago and couldn't remember who they were.

I don't like metalcore or any of the "cores", and I don't usually like that screaming/growling singing style, but that guy is bad-ass.

Edit: I'm talking about the current singer.

He is right. Flying Vs went out of style in the 80s.

Just to clarify.


Rhodes:




Rhoads:



That should settle the confusion.





Also, as for your dad TS. Don't worry about it. If you like Vs then you should get one. He isn't play it. You are.
