Explain / discuss. I got my first V recently and have been very pleasantly surprised at the pick-up-and-play-ability of the shape which I had always assumed was a bit of a pain to play sitting down. After about a week I'm just as comfortable with my V as I am on a Strat or LP. The trick is to squeeze the treble side 'leg' of the V between your thighs and play in the classical position. They are unwieldy to carry around though, you need to be careful of doorways and light fittings! And when you put them down on a sofa or table they will do everything they can to fall off!
