New Flying V Day. Well, Used New Flying V Day. 1980 Dean Flying V, all stock, in decent shape. Bought it off a friend. A GOOD friend, great price. Sound great clean and distorted. I am in V heaven.

That's 2 V's for me. This one, and my all korina Precision Guitar Kit V. Nice!

Cool!

I've wanted a V ever since I first got into electric and a friend of a friend had a Burnside Lance (by Guild) with a genuine Floyd Rose. Purple with black hardware, great player.

He wanted either a hundred bucks of some of my homegrown "vegetables".

Should have traded him the veggies, since I couldn't come up with the cash.

Later found out he traded it for some store bought.

Been looking on the sites ('Verb and 'Bay) for one ever since.

Thinking I'm going to try one of those Precision Guitar kits.

The only thing that tempers my jealousy is I can't stand those headstocks.

Nice, Kurt! Is everything stock on it? Curious about the pickups of those old Dean Guitars. Are they low or high output?

Rock on!

as far as I know is stock. funny, the tuners are nickel/chrome, so is the bridge. but the v tailpiece and jack cover are gold. I thought they were replacements. but I've looked at pics of vintage deans from that era, same thing. here's a 79' Dean ML, same gold tailpiece jack cover, nickel/chrome bridge.



I haven't taken the pu's off to see if they are DiMarzio super distortions, which is what the guitar came stock with. The only other guitar I have with buckers is my Korina V. S. Duncan 59's. The Dean V's pu's are a little hotter, crunch at a lover volume than the Korina V. I like the Dean as is. although I though about swapping them out for some Duncan 59's.
Laughing but I won't.
