Ollie's Flying V (aka The Goblin)

Commission build, 2019

Ollie wanted a V, not just any old V - It had to have a skull on it and the neck had to had feel like his PRS. So we built a V with the Custom 24 scale, neck shape and wiring. I used a bit of creative license with the skull inlay and made the guitar with a laminated walnut neck through and a carved maple top.
