I will tell you, I DO like the "modern flying v". But we know what inspired THAT design! Jackson Randy Rhoads "Roswell": Once upon a time I had a chance to buy one of these in a blue-green burst finish with a flamed maple top and it had the crop circle inlays on the neck. By "chance to buy" I mean it was available for purchase. Not that I had the money.... To me it has always been "the one that got away". I suppose I could build one.
