    While there are the Gibson Flying V,, the Jackson Randy Rhoads V, the BC Rich Kerry King Tribal V, The Kramer V...

    The ESP Dave Mustaine DV8 rules above all else. Mustaine left Dean and I'm really hoping that he goes back to ESP and resurrects these beauties again.

    Wasn't really much of a signature. Just a standard V-II with a small inlay on the first fret.

    December of 2006 was when Mustaine announced that he was leaving ESP and going to Dean Guitars.

    Change it to reverse headstock and remove the 8-ball inlay = awesome.

    I know its just an epiphone but I am quite partial to the Richie Faulkner V....that I believe is the coolest and not overwhelming in being a personalized sig...very tasteful

    Dave should go back to Jackson since he still uses one of his old Jackson King V's for recording.

    Had the red yellow fade limited version in ltd
    Too big and too light for my taste.
    Had the kv pro mustaine ( but a kahler saddle even after set ups etc was bothering me under my palm), a dean korea amber and a kv2
    The dean is closer to his jackson.

    Those ESP Vs are huge, I found a Korean V-500 (the LTD DV8 after Dave left) at a pawn shop a while back and it looked massive compared to my KV. I wish they continued to offer the Michael Padget sig actually, those tick all my boxes for what I want in a V

    I once played the LTD DV8 in the sunset fade finish and it was a great guitar. Very solid, played and sounded great but nothing about it stood out as anything special.

    Best V though

    Stick a Bareknuckle Warpig in the bridge and it destroys. Sadly the one I had wouldn't intonate for shit.

    You gotta make up your mind guys.
    Either we only include actual Vs with wings of the same size, or else the RR is the GOAT and we can call it a day.
    No need to bring others into the mix.
