Notice anything different???????? No??????? Are you sure???????



Are they dots on the fingerboard??? No binding on the fingerboard????

So then, the dot neck WAS played live after all! The NFT Floyd looks gold to me and with them being out of production (at the time), I wonder when it was removed, was it used on the Carvin? Just guessing of course. Wonder if it had the quick release lock nut at the time too?

Of course, that guitar became this one, after some well applied white electrical tape was added!

Good pickup. I saw it on my phone but didn't notice the dot inlays.

In the second pic it has the stock JT6 trem as well. Interesting.

The distance between the Floyd and the "V point" is also very short : see how the Floyd masks that place. Is the dot VVV smaller than the others ?

If this is true and it appears to be true these are not the same guitars as the first picture shows the Floyd not so close to the V Cut Away.

Perhaps there is two dot inlayed Double V Guitars?

The gold trem is much smaller than the Floyd, so I think it's the same guitar.

Because the black trem has fine tuners - I missed that as Vinnie seldom used a Floyd with fine tuners
