International The Flying V and Explorer (and all variants) Thread

...And it's about darn time.

We have the Les Paul thread, an SG thread, an ERG thread, a PRS thread, a Tele thread and Strat thread. And no thread dedicated to the appreciation of V's and Explorers in recent memory? Bollocks.

I pushed my Flying V into the vagina of a drunken slag too far for me to tolerate this tomfoolery. So with Colin's permission, this thread will bear the sweet fruit of many a picture of sexy Explorer and V guitars from the EG fellowship.

Rule no.1:




Rule No.2:

All Flying V and Explorer-style guitars and variants are allowed. Including Gibson, Jackson, ESP, LTD, Ibanez, BC Rich, Schecter, etc.

Pics of your own Flying V and Explorer projects are welcome and very encouraged!

Obligatory Flying V dump


Obligatory Explorer dump


So, with that out of the way, I'll post mine in a separate post because of the number of images in this one.

QUESTION: What Explorer or V-style guitar would you like get in the future? What specs would it have?

Dream guitar since I was a kid. I'm never selling this guitar.





Epiphone Futura Prophecy EX. This was the first decent guitar I ever bought, although I'm thinking about selling it. It's recently had a fret level and dress so it plays pretty awesome. 18v modded of course.





Excuse the bedsheets, i needed colour contrast

I like Vs, but I don't find them comfortable to play, so I will probably will never own one. Still, were I to buy one, I'd probably buy a Reverend Volcano (specifically the RA) or one of the US Masters guitars.

Fair enough.

I do find them very comfortable though. The classical position is something I've become very comfortable with over time.

the 600 series usually means it's a sig guitar made in Korea, but I've never heard of an artist that uses it.

EDIT: it turns out to be a Michael Amott sig guitar.

Not convinced it's worth the 350 myself.


I almost forgot!





(Not sure if these count!)

Anybody in here ever see a Nova pointy guitar? They had a headstock similar to a Gibson's, but the V shape was so compressed, it was almost like a Steinberger. I used to see ads for them all the time in the backs of magazines. I almost bought one, but they stopped running the ads.

Icemans count right? I think it's close enough to an Explorer shape. Either way it's kinda funky and pointy in places.
