RE:buying a v
(Date Posted:04-11-2008 17:39:03)
I've got an '81 in tobacco sunburst. As far as I know all "The V"s have a volute.
My luthier/repair friend that does all my work says that the body is maple.
Mine is a factory second. Is has a place on the back where the wood split just enough
to show its real color before getting stained.
Having a maple top and body, you might expect "the V" to have a bright tone,
but it really doesn't. It's very evenly toned. I'm sure you'll enjoy yours.
I really like mine. It's not my number one, but I don't think I'll ever
get rid of it.
There's also a variation of this model called the CMT for Curly Maple Top.
Basically it's constructed the same way but with a curly figured instead of flamed top.
If you'd like to see my "The V" you can visit my web site by clicking the little house icon
at the top right of my post.
ps If you visit my webpage, you'll know why "The V" is not my number one.
