    That's the old split explorer headstock. Not sure it goes with a reverse V, but it certainly looked good on an explorer (I've seen an original split headstock explorer valued at $1,000,000)

    I think thats the orignal futura headstock. It came out at the same time as the V and explorer but was much less popular. Today an original futura goes for alot more than 10 grand.

    Having played many V's they are not the most comfortable guitars around. The made that guitar 100 times uglier and harder to play, good job Gibson keep up the screwing customers.

    Ah, this explains why the explorer I saw was valued at $1M...

    It's not quite as ugly as the "Gibson" Thunderbolt
