Features: - Modern V shapped styling - Lightweight basswood body - 6.5 lbs - Diecast tuners with 12-1 ratio - Humbucker pickups for reduced noise - 24 fret 2 octive maple set neck with rosewood fingerboard - Two volumes and one tone with 3 way pickup selector swtich - Chrome hardware and Tune-O-Matick bridge - Scale length is 25.5" - String through body for improve sustain. // 10

Sound: It sounds amazing even with the stock pickups I have a behringer Vampire 1x112 and a PODXT Live and a looping station and I love that combo I also have a Peavey XXX and a Peavy cab for gigging it sounds good pushing through that too. It is very quiet, no hiss, no crunch pure clean bright sound. It's more of a mid and high end sound but if you crank the tone down a little and swap to the neck pickup you can get a nice bassy crunchy sound outa it. I like it. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: The guitar from the factory was good except for minor intonation and sum neck adjustments it needed the pickups were set perfectly. I could only find one flaw in the finish where the lacquer dried in a small droplet like bump at the end of the one V. // 8

Overall Impression: This guitar is great for any style of music. I've messed around on jazzy blues sounds and gone up to metal with it and I love it for metal because it's a V and you can solo straight up to the 24th fret and not have to worry about getting caught up at a cutaway which is the main reason I love Flying V's and I'm looking to buy another one. Hopefully if it's anything like this one I can have another great guitar to talk about forever if it was lost I'd have to kill them 'cause they don't sell em anymore so I'd have to use the thiefs body like a guitar in the movie From Dusk Till Dawn and that would be justice. // 10
