I did see Randy Rhoads with Ozzy about 30 days before he was killed.. tremendous player - crazy great live..

Yeah, V's are a pain in the keyster to sit and play.. As you probably know, my ONLY stage guitars are Jackson Randy Rhoads models, but they also suck to sit down and play.. not as bad as a V because the bottom leg is shorter, but still a pain.. That's why I ended up also buying about 6 Jackson Soloists, which are Strat body guitars.. I also use those to record with..

I DO love that Gibson V.. I had a chance to buy one in Dallas for $900.. if you noticed, that model is a specific model Gibson released.. no pickguard, and some other differences in regular V's.. Anyways, coulda bought one for $900 at Guitar Center in Dallas and didn't do it.. Now those models are rare because they were limited edition.. Used they are going for $2K, which is on par with the Jacksons, but more than I wanna spend right now..

However, if I find one for $900 all bets are off lol.. You sound like you have quite the collection, yourself.. I need to document all mine.. I've wanted to shoot a pic of all 17 for years, but that's a nightmare to work out lol

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
