Are these good guitars? I tried one out today at my local music store and i liked how it felt and how it played but i didn't really get a taste of the tone because it was late and i couldn't turn it up too loud. The closest other Flying V i know of is the Gibson faded but i have heard from many the faded are just Standard rejects and have low quality.

I am looking for a V or Exploror shaped guitar with a hardtail (will never mess with floyds again) and a reletivly thin neck. I will probably go back to get a better feel of the guitar.

My question is: are there are any good V or Explorer shaped guitars near the $500's w/o a floyd and a thin-ish neck. I really have my heart set on either a V or a Explorer shaped guitar.

80's Ibanez destroyer (dt-400 and up or destroyer 2 would be best)

Explorer shape

I was looking at these online and they look almost exactly like the epiphone, where could i get my hands on one? (besides ebay)

I have a Gibson faded V also (w/ a Mojave Amp Works pickup ), & it totally rips ass. Basically the same parts as a Les Paul Studio (I played a Studio last week, & it felt exactly like the V).
I like the V better than my Jackson or Ibanez or even my American Strat, just because the notes ring clearer. Love the mahogany w/ bright , lively amps.
