Is this 1979 Flying V legit?
Posted 14 March 2012 - 12:10 AM
I have the opportunity to buy this 1979 Flying V, but I am unsure about two issues I have noticed:
-The headstock looks to “round” compared to other ‘75-‘81 Vs. Shouldn’t it be more flat on the top?
-The serial number looks weird. I have never seen the S/N in a frame/box like you can see in the picture here. I have tried to google headstocks and none of the ones I have found have the frame around the S/N.
Anybody with some input? Is it V the real deal or is it a copy?
I know the blue color on a flying V is rare, but according to the seller the guitar have had a repaint, so that explains that.
