    "Flying V" shape? :eyebrow: A 5 string is a "V" to some people. Just trying to understand what you are looking for.

    Never seen one. You'd definitely be talking custom.

    Mike Lull is already doing Thunderbirds, maybe he'd be interested.

    Neck dive and reach to the 1st position would be off the charts, FWIW...
