    Here's some cool pics of Randy Rhoads' flying V on display on loan from his mom (Delores Rhoads). I thought you guys might enjoy these pics (courtesy of David Schramms website).

    Isn't that a Floyd Rose in the picture? It looks like it although I don't know for sure.

    Could be one of Floyd's early prototypes. I've always heard he gave his first prototype to EVH, the second one to Randy and the third one went to Brad Gillis.

    Some early Floyd's didn't have fine tuners.

    That is awesome. Do you have more pics?

    Is that Velcro on the side of the guitar?

    R.I.P. Randy, and thanks for the music you left us. You are the reason I started playing.

    That Jackson had the old school brass tremolo like the early Charvels-never had a Floyd.
