It’s very difficult to find good stands for those. Everything that locks at the headstock doesn’t work, because the stand needs to be tall enough as well as allowing the body to rest against it.
Good deals: OsbornKT, Phantasmagorovich, UglyCasanova, DarkAxel, Skip, D.o.S, ColdBrightSunlight, Eivind August, Goroth

Also you should be able to lower the action, the nice thing about tune-o-mastic bridges is it's easy to mess with that, just keep track of how many turns you make and you can get it back if you don't like it.


I "feared" that this would be the best solution. But I don't want to ruin it... I know a guy who builds guitars, maybe I'll ask him for help.

I have the action as low as it gets without buzzing. The Fender Mustang went far lower. But it's not *strikingly* high, just a bit higher than my go-to "benchmark low action" guitar.

Funny how the v evolved to become a metal/hard rock guitar even though, in the 50s, that was never the intention.

I always thought the Lonnie Mack sig Flying V looked pretty dope. I think I saw it for the first time in a music video for The The.

I don't like bursts or blue guitars.
But I love that.
