    V's are definitely cool and I would like to pick up another gibson V but gibson just seems to be getting over priced for my pocket book. I'm 58, haven't toured in years and only do occational studio work every so often so I don't see me buying a V anytime soon. I mostly sit in on studio sessions with some of my old metal head buddies. It's a blast and my grand kids think it's cool that their grandpa is covered in tats and plays metal lol.

    I am 60, one of my grandsons jams with me (when he has time) all my old buddies don’t come by any more, so I play for myself, one day soon the logistics of distance will be overcome, and some good times will ensue! Cheers Mitch

    I think V's look amazing. I've wanted a V for SO long now, but chicken out every time. I took a small step in the right direction and picked up an Explorer a few years back - I think I may be ready to give it another try.

    Some VERY nice looking V's in this thread gentlemen!

    Why not have both? Would recommend a V. I love mine, and my Explorer equally. I like the way they hang, pretty comfy to play

    You make a great point! :D I love the way the Explorer rests when I play (sitting or standing). I do a lot of recording (sitting), do you need to shorten the strap in a seated position? Or do you mostly stand when you play the V?

    I tend to stand all the time when I play so I'm not really sure about sitting with it. Can't even say I've tried to, actually

    I mostly stand with the V but you can play it sitting, when I do sit with it I have tall barstools and still use the strap! Cheers Mitch

    I learned to play guitar on a Jackson Kelly. I got my first V a few years later and I was hooked. After my hand was paralyzed and I gained movement back it became easier for me to hold a V shaped guitar since they rest against my knee. Then when I was in the market for a new Jackson I had to go with the King V. I think the Rhoads shape is awesome too but I like the extra stability the full sized V offers. The necks on the new Jackson Pro series are phenomenal. I found that when i don't have a shit neck I can play a lot better than I originally though..lol
