    I had two gibson v's long time ago. One I sold and the other was stolen. Liked them both but sold one for a les Paul. I do have a Dean Schenker customer flames V the he signed for me at a music store meet and greet. The neck is a little thicker than my gi son V but it still plays and sou ds great. Pic in my profile shows the v I am talking about.

    That head really fits that guitar but on the rest of the Dean's it's out of place and bulky. Ive considered looking into this V but haven't committed. What pup's are in it?

    It came stock with their own design I removed them . Right now it has a Duncan Distortion in the bridge. The guitar has a natural wood tone even when not plugged in. I don't know if all the imports sound that way , I never had a USA version. That would likely be a lot better I would assume .

    Michael has influence on people that most average guitar players don't know about. Mike Mccreedy , James Hetfield , Kirk Hammet , Ritchie Faulkner , Michael Ammot and probably a few that would not admit it.
