First let me thank SBlue for his efforts, I am very grateful my friend thank you very much. Asa I saw this I knew I may not see another. From '86 all original serial# J2XXX play is fast as it looks. Typical speed neck w/no trem similar to a mustaine spec but with 22 frets that I like better for a few reasons. When I pulled her out of the case it was noticeably heavy and speaks to the old school quality of tone woods. There may be a few that reflect how much better the ebony was back then, very dense. 20220921_163519.jpg20220921_163455.jpg20220921_162842.jpg20220921_162912.jpg

Love it, absolutely kills. The layout for me is simple perfection. Like the inside rf shielding? They definitely went the extra mile back then. I can seriously feel/hear the quality. I bet the vibe at the factory was unreal back in the day.

I love the V so much in the looks Department I never got along with playing one, I play sitting down a lot and it just didn't work for me. It was frustrating because I just love them. Congratulations that's a badass looking guitar!
