Members V-man Posted October 20, 2009 Members Share Posted October 20, 2009 Mine is the Gibson Flying V in Ebony. It is iconic, plain and simple. The one thing that kills me though, is the fact that it is only available with a rosewood fretboard. Brown on black is rough, but brown on black AND white is just awful. What makes it even worse is that they make/made the white Vs with ebony fretboards right beside it. As such, I simply won't give Gibson my money for one... it just bothers me that much. With the disposable income, I'd certainly consider some far-costlier limited affair with block inlays and and a bound ebony fb, and yes, I'd prob suffer through the OCD on a $600 clearance or a $450 craigslist, but no way would I consider parting with $800+ for something that's wrong in my mind. That's the hangup that sticks out clearest in my mind. How about you? Is there some feature or hangup that spoils an otherwise great guitar for you?
