V Bass owners

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Reigninblood, Jan 18, 2012.

  1. Anyone else here a die hard flying V bass player? I own 2 dean flying V basses. One stock, one preparing for a new Badass bridge and new hi output pickup. Saving up for a Gibson Korina flying V bass. I started playing in 1997 on a sweet soundgear, n have went through about 10 basses since, even a couple American made Fenders. For some reason the most comfortable thing for me to play on is the V. Maybe the way its weighted? Or cuz it looks timeless. If your particular to the V please share your setup. Thanks!

    Flying Vs are probably the most polarizing shape of any standard production instrument.
  3. good or bad thing? In my experience its the best shape for playing the style I play. I can play on a.$3000. Warwick n while the sound is great, no other shape fits my style like a V, the classic V, not the spikey V.

    If it works for you and you like it, that is all that matters.
