Ive been looking at perhaps buying a few v style guitars but I have one major question...... HOw do you wear the strap? Ive never actually seen somebody play one so I don't know. Do you bend the strap over the back/front or some other way?

If you have pictures of you or someone else playing one that would help

I have the same question with Z or Explorer style guitars so say whether they are the same way or not if you could

I always let my strap go behind the tail of the Explorer and of the flying Vs that I have.
Some people run the strap along the tail fin of Explorers...

Ya that was the way that I would guess without trying it out first.

It probably helps with the neck-heaviness of the Explorer. Let me try it.

Everyone i know just plays with it behind them.

IMO, i find those guitars hard to play because there isnt anything to rest your arm on. The guitar seems far away from you at all times.

You now if there are any cheap v's other than deans?

I see that u have one but I hear that they're queality is a little bad. I'd like something with a pickguard

My Dean is an acoustic V
The Kramer I didn't pay much more for, but it doesn't have a pickguard either.
I'm not even sure which Vs do have a pickguard.
I find they are better looking without them.

I was looking at some Kramers too...

I like playing classic rock like Who, Aerosmith and Zeppelin. Can you still get the tones I'm looking for out of the KRamers? I thought that Kramers were mostly for metal though I wouldn't consider Van Halen metal.
