Hi, it's been some time I'm looking at V's, definitively on the short list, but they are quite rare and I would appreciate inputs about them Early Schenker-UFO kind of tone is a big thing I have in mind, but playing some more bluesy stuff would be nice too.. I seemed to look mainly at 2 kind of Vs: on one hand old 70's era ones, and on the other hand Korina Reissues. First of all, are they some differences (year,..) within each of these 2 categories? early 70's any better than late 70's one for instance? For the Korina model, I've seen mainly 2 types, the Gibson Reissues, quite pricey, and the Hamer Vector. I don't want to turn these thread into a Gison/Hamer argument, but I would be interested in some comparaison of the 2 if someone has been able to play both I'd prefer a "not too big" neck, little slimer than my early 2000 R9 LP, somewhere around my early '60 LP Special and '73 LP Deluxe would be great. Would there be important differences for the neck between the different models? would you recomment one as far as this criteria is concerned? In general which model of V between an good old 70's one and a Korina model would you choose? or maybe even another model? why? The most important for me is the playing vibe, having great feeling while playing it, big resonance... and the tone. I'm not looking for a collector piece. any advice in general will be greatly appreciated Thanks!
