    Happy birthday to me... When I saw it was backordered indefinitely on Black Friday, I was pretty bummed that I might not see it until next year. Much to my surprise it showed up today. My first V, it is a special edition built for Musician's Friend with a mirrored pick guard. Reminded me a lot of one of the V's Paul Stanley played around the Destroyer Era.

    Never bought a guitar from MD before but I must say, I got a very good specimen here. I don't see a flaw anywhere on it and after tuning it up, it plays AWESOME. I was worried about the Dirty Fingers pups (again, mostly after reading negative reviews about them). They are dark sounding if anything but they pair so nicely with my SV20H, which can be very bright.

    Other thing I was worried about, being my first V is how it would hang from my body while playing. Dare I say it feels more natural than my Les Paul, certainly more natural than my SG and 335. I have a show tomorrow night, was gonna hold off bringing this along but I just might have to bring it anyway to play. Should get a pretty good reaction from the crownld with that mirrored PG...

    Paul compensates for lack of knobs and zero neck binding with an overly hairy chest. I've seen toupees with less hair...

    yeah i meant to exclude these as a choice. ive just seen some real garbage out there tied to his name
    over the yrs. the iceman is a real gem of a player. always with a hefty price tag as you see in your link.
    this one is extra hefty due to the cracked mirror. ive read before on how that mirror was made. its no easy task
    and raises the price tag to reflect that too.
