At a concert last year i used my freind's Epiphone V, it looks sexy as do all V's, the only problem i had with it is that it was top-heavy (the neck heavier than the body)

As i would like a V i was wondering if all V's are like this.

Any help is much appreciated.


i think they are... it's because of the strap button position.

Nah, it's the Epis that are like this, I heard their LP's are pretty neck heavy too?

^^yea, depends on the model, the woods used, body size etc. but i guess they'll usually be more neck heavy than strat type guitars.

Jackson King V isn't heavy. The neck does naturally pivot downwards, but I think thats more to do with the strap button position than being heavy
thats why jackson or esp is the choice for metal or any kind of v style guitars. I dont mind the classic Gibson flying v's :P
Just an influence.
