    Cool. Congratulations and Happy (Pending) New Guitar Day. V's aren't for me but I hope you love yours to death.

      Thanks. The biggest complaint I hear from people is that they're hard to play sitting down. Just about every V enthusiast say you get used to it, and they can even become their favorite guitar to play sitting down. You have to rest your leg between the two back horns which puts the neck at about a 40 degree angle. It is a little awkward but I imagine I'll get used to it and I don't mind standing up while I jam, especially in front of a mirror.

    Two of my favorite guitar tones, though miles apart sylistically, are played on a V. Albert King's MAJOR Blues tone, and Michael Schenker's beautiful Rock tone.

    Real nice! I believe it's ebony color. http://www.zzounds.com/item--GIBDSVR
    It really looks like it has the specs of the ''old ones''. I got a 97 V!

      Thanks. Yes its ebony. That was the only color they had left in stock and the color I wanted anyway. Free ground shipping but its only coming from Nevada so it should be here fast. Ill post plenty of pics when I get it. I really hope theres nothing wrong with it. " id="man" src="https://guitarcenter.i.lithium.com/i/smilies/16x16_man-.png" alt=":man:" title="Man Very Happy" />

    Awesome! Pics when you get it!

    Don't some Vs have a rubber strip on the bottom edge that makes it rest normally when you play it sitting? Also, you can always use a strap set really high.
