I've been wanting to save up for a cool new guitar for a while now and always had a fancy for a flying V. I was recently looking at some trying to find one that had the things my other guitars don't, namely a floyd rose and 24 frets but I haven't had much luck finding a v that is classy looking like the original gibson.
I saw some pictures of K K downing playing a flying v and I noticed it had all the qualities I wanted in a guitar and more, 24 frets, maple fretboard and a floyd rose.
After looking around I found out it was a hamer guitar but I haven't had much luck in finding ones available.
So my question for you is, can you help me a find a Flying V with some or all of the qualities listed here?
-24 frets
- Floyd rose
- Classic V look

These are the most important features but its would be nice if they also had these:
- maple fretboard
- Emgs

thanks

try ebay, or get a jackson RR24, it's not the exact same v shape as a gibson flying v, but it has a floyd rose and EMG's

The only V i can think of that looks most similar to a gibson is a Dean and i'm not sure if they have 24 frets or a floyd...

Yeah I can't think of any Vs that are classic that have these specs except dean,but it won't have a classic head stock like a gibson....
Gibson Thunderhorse
Jackson RR24M

I was looking at those jackson randy roads but they only come with one pickup ( the ones with the maple fretboard) but really I guess I just want a metal guitar with a maple fretboard and floyd, I'm just so used to my maple strat. Thanks for the recommendations, I'll look into them.

you're kidding?... V's are waaay more confortable to play sitting down (classical guitar style) than other shapes... (disclaimer: i dont like the V shape)
