I am currently selling a couple of guitars and looking for a Flying V with mixed fortunes.

The Gibson current offering does not suit me, I like the looks of the 67RI and would like a white model with a dark fretboard which rules out pretty much all Gibsons since 2011.

The other matter is that I like my necks to have the 59 profile and Vs usually are a mix of slim taper and 59.

So I'm looking at importing a white FV-95 which would tick most boxes but I cannot get much info on the neck profile.

Have any of you played Tokai Vs (MIJ) and what was the neck like?

If the FV neck is thin are there any other makers offering a chunky neck? (Edwards, Bacchus...)

I have an 84 Tokai V (FV-70). Neck is wide like an SG and has a full profile. Very much a 59 feel but perhaps a little wider at the fretboard.
