Well I never thought it would be so frustrating, but playing my Jackson Rhoads while sitting down is near impossible, i have to try to balance it on my bed while holding it up with my left hand, which is bad. Anybody have any solutions to said problem?
LOOK AT MY SIG!!!!

Put your right leg in between the two wings at the crux. Problem solved.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Whiole sitting dowen jsut put the v in between your lap and be more upward with the guitar instead of horizontal, its what i do with my rhoads;]

could try putting one edge above your knee and one below, if you get me. itll be a weird position to be in, but might work.

but + 1 to standing

I'm amazed at how many people have this problem.


I know.. I've always found them so comfortable sitting down
#10
It's a stage guitar. If you must sit down with it, you'l have trouble reaching the higher notes past your knee D:
Solution: stand up.

So simple, yet most everyone over looks it.
The "WUT" face when my friend saw it in the shop with me was great, he couldn't figure out how to sit with it
#12
let me know how that works out for ya. i played one of them for years and never found a comfortable wat to do it. you could put the wings stradeling a leg but then your arms get all goofy and it makes it hard to play. Good luck
Im gonna pistol whip the next guy that says shenanigans !!!!

i couldn't sit down with one very well (a rhoads) when i tried them out at GAK, but i can sit down perfectly with a Dean Razorback V.

TBH... i dont see how people can have these problems, I have an Agile Reaper (very similar to a Rhoads) & it just feels REALLY comfortable for me sitting down & its sooo simple to work out how to sit with it... as soon as i got it i already knew how to sit with it & i'd never played a V or Rhoads before.

I do it different.. but I play a normal guitar far different as well.
I basically stick the whole guitar between my legs and I always wear a strap so I don't have to worry about supporting it or whatever.
#19
It's amazing how many people can not comprehend how easy and comfortable V's are to play sitting down even when its explained to them over and over, LOL.

To be honest i don't know why i bought a V. I even put in a dimarzio tone zone. Now bear in mind i play blues and a little bit of classic rock and I'd built a monster metal guitar i don't quite know what i was thinking.

they make rests for them that go on the bottom wing and then sits on your knee,ive seen this on a few kramer guitars
#24
ummm... where a shoulder strap? I use it on my Rhoads and stay in classical position, and never have any problems, its only a problem if you dont use a strap... or just stand up?

I did exactly the same. I play blues and some hard rock and I went and bought a jackson V when I was in a metal band. Put a bareknuckle warpig in it and screwed up sightly with the electronics (couldn't get the earthing sorted) and now since I left the band it's just sat in the hardcase with the strings slackened off for months. Awesome guitar to play live, but not really my style and not comfortable to play sitting down (plugged in anyways).

I have a Rhoads, and it's the only electric I own, and it was actually the first electric I ever owned, and now I can barely play any other guitar not a V because it's so uncomfortable. I get a little confused around the upper frets because I'm so used to sitting the V betwen my legs and the neck at a 45 degree angle, and it's higher up. I love v's.
#28
this is unrelated, but im just going to say I would never buy a gibson flying v, id get a jackson rhoads over it, the flying v looks like it had to meet safety regulations or something, its just kinda ugly i think.
