Randy Rhoads Polka Dot


Story about Karl Sandoval Flying v


Many individuals feel Wayne Charvel or Grover Jackson built the Polka Dot Flying V, but actually it was produced by Karl Sandoval. It was requested on Jul three, 1979 and accomplished on September 22, 1979.


Rhoads used a lot time to design this instrument and he wanted a guitar that combined of both Gibson's tone and Fender's play style, therefore, the details of this instrument, such as string length and nut width, are depending on his Gibson Les Paul guitar, especially the thickness from the neck. Randy and Karl talked about a extended time and lastly decided on the crocodile headstock structure, which became a symbol in the Polka Dot V. The dots were asked to be aligned on a regular basis rather than randomly, which could make it look a lot more 3-dimensional. Those dots were certainly Polka dot that obtained the name from a particular east European music called Polka. It does not mean the dot looks like jumping notes, but you can find a good deal of polka music album covers ornamented with polka dot pattern in a particular time period. Quite simply, this graph was actually derived from the cover for music records. One of the most popular times of polka pattern is in 50's when women preferred wearing fluffy lengthy skirts, decorated with white spots on black colored background. The famous Japanese avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama is a extremely fans of polka dot, who, suffered with psychological troubles, ever praised the polka dot pattern with one well-known sentence "Earth is 1 amongst countless dots!" We explored a lot information and materials regarding the iconic attributes of this specific electric guitar, taking in the experience of discussing with our clients, now we are able to make not just those smaller dots from the original instrument but also reasonably larger dots for our clients, since lots of buyers experience a little dizzy once they carry a duplicate of the original dot pattern, which may be triggered by the smaller sized diameter and high density of the dots.

The original instrument was set-in structured; therefore, the instrument was quite stable, when compared with the bolt-on style. We provide two style alternatives of both set-in and neck-through structure. The set-in structure is right precisely the same as the genuine guitar; however the neck-through structure raises the stableness of the instrument.

Karl Sandoval Flying v Hardware


The authentic instrument used chrome hardware, and Rhoads changed the frame of the bridge, pickups and nuts into dark colored ones. Therefore we offer 2 options, one is dark colored, yet another is chrome.


Karl Sandoval Flying v Truss Rod


There is no truss rod upon the authentic electric guitar, therefore it is inconvenient to regulate the neck, as Randy considered. Therefore our instruments all possess truss rods on them. Needless to say, if you want a completely original style, we can also build it for you.
