Just got my new custom V!!!

  1. Earlier in the year I ordered a custom Flying V guitar from Gibson, well my order just came in today and its a bad ass guitar, not only does it look awesome , it sounds great. Though bass is my main love, I still enjoy the guitar. But dont worry fellow bassers, i ordered a custom EB3 from gibson also thats getting Lipstick pickups, and a psychedelic paint job, should be in by december!

    Here is my new baby!! This isnt a pic i took, i dont have a dig camera or a scanner, this is the one that the shop took against a white surface, but it is the same as mine, they sent it to me via email.

    Too bad it's not a bass.
     
  3. Whoa, you got them to make you an EB-3? That's a REAL custom job. Rockin!
     
  4. Yeah, but the EB3 was expensive- a good 4 grand, the v was only 2,500. But hell, i had money to blow, my granpa , who was a jazz man and amazing bassist died last year and left me a **** load of money- in his will he told me not to waste it on practical stuff and to only use it on music equipment! Cool guy he was.

    As a die-hard guitar fan, that "V" is really nice lookin'.

    A band I used to play drums in, the guitar player (RH) had a black "V". The bass player (LH) had a black "V" bass.
     

  7. Im not sure on the exact amount of my gramps money i have left, but its about enough that if i wanted to buy , say a uh.....a new Lexus and then turn around and buy one of those mazda 3 s if i wanted too.

    I didn't mean to get personal and ask what your G-pa left you, I meant the price of guitar. Sorry if that offended you.


    Anywhoo, that is awesome he said you could only spend the inheritence on musical gear. :D

    I would definitely oblige his wish though, Bad Juju not respecting the wishes of the passed. :D
     
  9. nah i wasnt offended, the guitar was 2k all together.
