The “Flying V” is a string instrument, like a guitar, made out of wood, glue, guitar strings and metal fasteners.

It is a member of the string family because plucking the strings causes them to vibrate producing its sound.

This homemade guitar is tuned just like a real guitar with strings pitched E, A, D, G, B, E. It is tuned using a special wrench to tighten or loosed the strings attached to the metal fasteners until they reach the desired pitch.
