Hi Borna,
I've seen photo shots at Nellcote with the flying V in the basement room but I don't know if it was used during these sessions. I guess it was then stolen ...

That guitar was around for a few years so it might have been used in the studio maybe someone knows for sure.

I think J. Geils stole it.

Maybe, but not very likely, as the only pictures of the Flying V in a studio are from Nellcote, and there are hardly any guitars on Exile recorded at Nellcote except for some open G rythm tracks, mainly played on Tele's. About all guitars were recorded at Sunset Sound in L.A.

I would like to hear clean sound of flying v, not the sound with overdrives, effect pedals processors... Just clean guitar sound, for example plugged in fender twin amp or fender bassman. What recording (in all music) do you reccomend?

Mathijs-Interesting comments about recording at Nelcote. I thought a lot of recording was done there ..overdubs later in LA. Were the sessions in Nelcote just for the demos?

I can't imagine anyone choosing to use a Flying V to record! They are a pain in the arse, don't sound particularly good in any way. IMO are used for visual reasons, i.e. Live. And even there are debatable. Flying V, Firebird, Fender Jaguar...some of the weaker models out there IMO.

There is another thread discussing what was recorded at Nellcote. But basically, Exile was recorded 50% in LA, spring 1970, 30% is from Stargroves and Olympic, and the remaining 20% is Nellcote. In general, there's about 5 or 6 songs that have the very basics (drums, maybe a rythm guitar) recorded at Nellcote.

About the Flying V: they don't sound all that good actually. The problem is: the most important spot on any guitar is the area behind the bridge -this is where the vibrating strings are amplified by the vibrating wood. With the Flying V, they chopped all this wood away, so there's nothing to vibrate. Flying V's are for visuals, and original V's are rare and expensive, so it's a nice show off method.
