    '13 '67 Flying V reissue.

    I'm loving it! The neck is quite a bit fatter than I was expecting, in a good way. Lots of shoulder. Sounds great, the pickups are probably a bit hot for me (BB2 & BB3) but I will no doubt change them out for some bareknuckles. I'll change the saddles to nylon eventually to help with the maestro which works great.

    Very cool. You don't see too many Vee's on a NGD thread.

    Cheers guys!

    Yeah I waited a long to find a white one in the UK. I like the bursts and black too, but already have 2 guitars in each of those colours and fancied something a bit different.

    I'm really pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it is to play sitting down in "classical" position. It's helping me approach the instrument differently and try alternative fingerings.

    I use a Wilkinson roller bridge with the Maestro on my Explorer. Cheap and effective. Can easily be put back to stock too.
