my drummer says so since im buying a v on tuesday and he says not to get it cuz im gonna look like an asshole... seems a little weird to me but he said if i asked on UG that everyone would agree... so UG, do u think that a flying v makes you look like an ass?

I dont like them, but it depends on your taste, I suppose. just dont play any beatles and expect to look cool :P
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

Not surprisingly, your drummer's an idiot.

In my experience, all of them are.

I actually think that Flying V's look really cool when someone is playing them. Yeah, but like BostonLP said, its all about taste. (If you like v's, you have good taste in my book)

to me, it depends what style of music you play
if ur a metal player then no, a flying V is fine they look awesome
but if u into like rock n roll, the beatles type thing u would be better suited with a gibson les paul or something

Thats my opinion anyway
but as a whole V's are kool
#12
Dont buy one if youre fat. Fat people + V's are not a good combo.

Unless you have a lot of tattoes and a beard and the guitar isnt white.

Otherwise Flying V's make you look cool as f**k.
#14
I don't like them at all and my brother absolutely hates them. Very few people can play them without looking like a knob. Hendrix, Laiho, Mustaine.
#15
I hate flying V's too. I liked them for like a week maybe when i liked BMFV *shudders*
I had to make my my account in that week too...=\

Yeh IMO they do.

This.

Plenty of people use V's and look like badasses, like Dave Mustaine, James Hetfield, Mille Petrozza, Buckethead, etc.

Its metal (assuming), dont you want to be an asshole?

I find that I feel the same about women who play bass as I think of immigrants in America.

I respect them for finding a place in society under a lot of ridicule, but I have an odd paranoia that they are going to steal my job.

You can't play them sitting down though.

Ever heard of classical position?


If classical position is what I think it is, I can imagine that + a flying V would be somewhat painful.

Oh, with your right leg between the tail spikes? Sounds uncomfortable... and not metal.

Rhoads*.

You get better fret access and better posture if you use the classical position. At least I do when I do it, anyway.

I certainly hope not...

I really don't like flying Vs and I think they're ugly, but this is only one opinion. They don't necessarily make you look like an ass, that's determined by other factors.
