Hey Im really interested in getting a gibson flying v faded worn cherry http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Divisions/Gibson%20USA/Guitars/Flying%20V/V-Factor%20Faded/ and from what my friend said its just a regular flying v just with a faded look and hella lot cheaper so its basically a no brainer. I just want to know is this guitar good for rock, metal, blues, progressive, grunge, funk, and jazzy type of stuff? Like are the pickups pretty much great for all of these genres?

^ Allright thanks man! Blues isnt too important and funk is going to be dificult not to play lol. On the audio thing for it, it had an amazing bluesy funky thing on it and it sounded amazing but whatever :p...

They are a good deal, but so are the regular V's...

Personally I'd rather have a Faded SG, they're more versatile, and not ugly

V's are good,

only downside is it's really akward to sit down with, believe me, I wanted one to, but ended up with something else because the V was so weird to sit with

I bought one and I will never regret it. It gets damaged really easily (knicks, scratches and stuff), and it sounds decent - kickass for all genres of music. I haven't found a song yet that sounds bad on it.

I disagree. I think the Faded SG's are hideous.

Different strokes for different folks.

And here I thought I was the only one who dislikes the look of SG's.

I love SG's. I wouldn't mind having the Faded V. Might need a little setup and minor fret dressing.

Yeah they are very ugly. I just love how the worn cherry and faded bring out the look of the guitar! But comeone save like 600 more dollars to have it glossy? thats pretty stupid! And the v is more of a live instrument that you can fling around and looks amazing standing up. Plus I heard if you put one side of your guitar under your leg and play it like that, itgets very confertable. Dimebag played his v like that when he took ****s lol :p.
