I've always wanted to have a flying V in this style:



The problem is that I want decent access to the 24th fret, and due to the shape of the guitar, this isn't always the case. This V has enough access, but I hate how it looks: Carvin V (Ehh link doesn't work, it's the Ultra V Reissue guitar)

Do you guys know of any alternatives?

Oh wow, and look at all those extra frets. Yeah, not looking at uber expensive (this is >£2000 haha) tbh. Really nice fret access though, veeeeeeeeery nice. Shape isn't bad either! biggrin.gif

Check out the Jackson RR24 aswell, it's a Rhoads V with 24 frets and 25.5 scale, very much like the ESP SV but cheaper and only one pickup. Otherwise I would also recomennd the ESP SV or Alexi guitars, they're great. I'm thinking about buying the RR24 next, tried it at the music store and it was awesome. The Jackson KV5FR is also very nice, but I don't know about the access on them.
