So I'm thinking about getting a V-Shaped guitar and I don't really know that much about them and right now I can't go anywhere to try them out, so I need you guys to help me out and give me some choices for V-Shaped guitars. I would prefer it to have 24 frets, but if it doesnt and you think highly of the guitar then please post anyway. Thanks in advance.

iv never liked Vs but id say jackson as they have the 24 frets and are very solidly built IMO.

U CANT SIT DOWN WITH THEM

I have a Washbrun Dime V dimebag darrel sig and its the only thing i play. it does the perfect job for me has looks great, sounds great, 24 frets, is very light and plays fast. and the finishing touches of the skulls on the 12th fret. i dunno if this is wot ur lookin 4 tho or if ur lookin at something of a higher price range.

Well, both Jackson and ESP build solid, modern V's. Jackson, Epi, and Gibson all make classic flying V designs. I think BC Rich and Moser Custom have ultramodern/metal style V's. Take your pick.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

If you're in Europe, Japan or Australia, the best are ESP V- and SV-standards.

In America, probably Jacksons, or ESP DV8s if you want a hardtail.

If you buy a Rhoads type V and its not a Jackson then dont buy it.........Full V's are the best way to go........

anyways, threadstarter, jackson rr5's have 22 frets, but they play very nicely and imo have a good sound.

Yes you can...
Ever see a classical guitarist? Many V players use their way.

I prefer to play the Gibson CLassic Style Vs the new King Vs and Such are too pointy for my taste

thanks, that made a ton of sence


are you saying, if you find a rhoads shape, unless made by jackson, don't buy it?

Jackson Rhoads = good
I think ESP makes a rhoads shaped ish one once= good
symetrical Vs are just shaped different = wtf are you talking about


I like the rhoads shape, if that's what you find wrong.
I'm not racist.

I hate everyone the same.

ESP discontinued their V (V-350 was the most popular I think) series a while back... you could probably find one on ebay if you want something used.

Gibsons were good enopugh for Hammet before they were endorsed by ESP...put a SD Invader in the bridge and you have the old metallica tone.

^ Its true of course then you still need a modded plexi and an old school pro co rat for there real tone

I just want one for their playability, but if I end up getting enough money I might just get a custom SL2H.

Don't worry about sitting down with a V, it's easy! Just put your leg inside the V and use a right-angled cable if you need one. Simple!
