When I first joined Shinedown, I had a definitive vision of what I wanted to have on-stage and what I wanted to present. That vision was to have all Gibsons, all in black. I have an ES-335, Les Paul Custom, a ’57 reissue, a ’67 reissue Flying V, an Elvis Presley Signature Dove, the black SG GT, an Explorer and a black Firebird. When you see all those guitars together in a rack, it just has such a presence.more
"También la Flying V me ha conmovido y sorprendido la vez que la probé. Quedé enamorado por su comodidad, fácil acceso a las notas, gran imagen, y por sobre todo su tono, que va de lo más clásico a lo más moderno. Es una guitarra que en ahora he comenzado a utilizar mucho en vivo." He mentions that he's been using the Gibson Flying V to play live.more
This is another of my least played guitars. It feels different strapped on, but it sure is a looker. I'm not sure I'll ever get used to the shape or I'll play it a lot more, but I'm glad to have it in the collection.
This guitar has so much guts right out of the box. You definitely won't need to upgrade a single thing if you simply want a kickass rock n roll guitar. This guitar has grit and can sound dirty or clean and stays in tune forever. I bought a V cos I saw Bob Mould use one in Husker Du on the Joan Rivers show. That performance blew me away. He made a V look super cool and sound awesome. This is my main stage guitar and it's never failed me in 12 years of live shows.
