Flying Vs are on fire these days, and these unique Designer Series models follow suit.  This particular V has a couple changes that make it more affordable than a fully stock, original example while remaining a really playable guitar.

Frets show some wear, but not as much as the overall condition of the guitar might imply.  The slim neck is straight and there is room for adjustment in the truss rod.

The pickups are changed to a set of 1980s Bill Lawrence rail humbuckers.  One of the pots is changed.  The control cavity cover is replaced with a clear plexi plate.  

There is a route on the front of the body to accommodate the Kahler tremolo, which is partly mounted on the original bridge stud holes.  

The original case is included.  It has seen better days!
