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.

Yeah the Rhoads V is extremely comfortable to play, either sitting or standing. It's nicely balanced and fits very comfortably over your leg. I honestly find my RR3 the most comfortable guitar to play sitting down.

Well he never said he was exclusively going for style, I mean as far as we know he could just be asking for recommendations for what to buy withing his comfort range. Personally I got for these three things in this order 1)feel 2)sound 3)look , but what I'll do is I'll find guitars which fit into the first two criteria, then look within those for the third.

I agree. I learned on a Les Paul shape and I played with it sitting on my left leg and later noticed that most people rest it on their right leg. When I got a RR it forced me to play in the position I wanted to but was also very comfortable. These days I can rest a guitar on either leg but when on my right leg it puts strain on my wrist when shredding/sweeping.

TC hearts change. When I got a V I was all about V's and 6 inline tuners, now I'm more of a Superstrat/ 3 a side guy. The V will always rise again though.

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.

This. I've played a flying v and they aren't too comfortable for me to play. I'm sure it would just take getting used to.

Doesn't matter if it's in style or not, what matter is HOW you play it

And it doesn't matter if some dood on the interwebs find that -core s*cks, what matters is if you enjoy it!

And I enjoy listening to As I Lay Dying, August Burns Red, Protest the Hero, to name a few...
