Story about Karl Sandoval Polka Dot Flying V


A lot of individuals think Jackson or Wayne built the Polka Dot Flying V, but the truth is it was manufactured by Karl Sandoval. It was requested on Jul three, 1979 and accomplished on Sept 22, 1979.


Randy put in much time to design this specific electric guitar and he wanted a guitar that combined of both Gibson's tone and Fender's play style, so the parameters of this particular electric guitar, for example string size and nut width, are based on his Gibson LP instrument, particularly the size of the neck. Randy and Sandoval talked over a long time and finally decided on the crocodile headstock style, which turned out to be a icon in the Polka Dot V. The dots had been asked to be aligned frequently rather than randomly, which could make it appear more 3-dimensional. Those dots had been absolutely Polka dot that acquired the name from a specific East Europe music referred to as Polka. It doesn't mean the dot looks like leaping notes, but you will find a good deal of polka music album covers ornamented with polka dot pattern inside a certain period of time. This means that, this graph was originally derived from the cover for music records. Probably the most popular period of polka pattern is in 50's when women preferred wearing fluffy extended skirts, ornamented with white spots on black color background. The famous Japanese avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama can be a super follower of polka dot, who, suffered from psychiatric problems, ever praised the polka dot pattern with one well-known phrase "Earth is one among millions of dots!" We checked a lot data and materials concerning the iconic features of this particular electric guitar, taking in the knowledge of discussing with our customers, now we are able to make not merely those smaller dots in the original electric guitar but also relatively larger sized dots for our customers, simply because a great many customers really feel a little dizzy when they have a replica of the original dot pattern, which might be triggered by the smaller sized diameter and high density of the dots.

Karl Sandoval Polka Dot Flying V Hardware


The authentic electric guitar used chrome hardware, and Randy Rhoads altered the frame of the nuts, pickups and bridge into dark colored ones. So we offer you two possibilities, one is black colored, another is chrome.


Karl Sandoval Polka Dot Flying V Truss Rod


There is no truss rod upon the genuine electric guitar, so it really is inconvenient to alter the neck, as Randy regarded as. Therefore our instruments all have truss rods on them. Needless to say, if you would like a totally original structure, we can also make it for you.
