Hi there, I'm an adult guitar player who bought a Gibson Flying V "Maestro" for my daughter and I can't seem to bring this guitar into full alignment. Or at least not for an extended amount of time. Are there any recommendations above and beyond that which is provided to us via the manual that comes with the guitar? Like . . .

What type of strings might one recommend?

Any help would be appreciated, even if the reality of the matter is that the guitar simply wont stay in tune. =D>

Thanks.

Scott

G C F A# D G is the proper tuning. I found tuning down to give the best results in playability, but you are supposed to tune it 3 steps up.... so you may want to keep that in mind.

Good luck!

Hello,

I had the same problem with the flying V I bought for my son.
It was impossible to keep it in tune with the strings that came with the guitar.

My guitar teacher fixed it by installing some 0.13 strings and now it´s perfect!!

hope this helps,


thx,
