That's killer. Me likey.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!
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.View attachment 136297View attachment 136300View attachment 136309View attachment 136306View attachment 136312View attachment 136315View attachment 136318View attachment 136321
No clue, I could guess but that's all it would be. I need build data and would have to try to track it down. I still might do that. My guess is neck through eastern hard rock maple with poplar or alder sides, no scarf joint? Another guess is it was and more likely a custom shop and that wouldn't suck, it effin kills
