    I'm on a V kick. I love the 70s V look with the short round headstock. This one even has the proper raised fretboard with no neck angle. It's a beater and I got a sweet deal. It's a great player. The fretboard is still smooth with some gloss. I can drop the action super shreddy low. It's nice and light. These were made by Fujigen along with the Ibanez, Electra (Hetfield's white V), Aria and I think one or two other names. The only differences being hardware and electronics. Well this one is the set neck version. There were also bolt on versions like Hetfield's.

    Yeah apparently my phone pics are too big to attach. I'll edit them on the laptop and post them.

    There's an app called image compressor I use to shrink the pics enough to upload onto SSO.

    I can't edit the OP for some reason. Anywho hear are some pics my wife took. I've got some EMGs on the way and I am going to order a Faber locking bridge setup. I usually replace the studs and everything because it really makes a huge difference with the metal Faber uses. However, this one could be a problem. It looks like they installed the studs for the tailpiece and then painted the factory finish over it so that it looks like the stud screws go straight into the body. So it could be a pain in the ass trying not to fuck up the finish getting the old studs out. You can't really see in the pics but someone chopped off the corners on the heal. This is mainly why I got such a good deal. At first I was thinking wtf but after playing it really makes a huge difference in comfort and makes it feel like a neck thru joint so I will probably just leave it as it is. Needless to say I am happier than a pig in shit.
