The Vintage V100 solid bodied guitar, is one of many from the popular ReIssued Series, adored by musicians literally around the world.
It’s also from this classic series that the V100MRGT has had the privilege of passing through the hands of the Vintage ProShop team of highly skilled craftsman, emerging with a new identity as the exquisite V100PU1270.
Now, after a new black gloss overspray on the solid mahogany body and neck, many hours have been spent hand sanding in friction wear areas to replicate, bracelet and belt buckle abrasions and heavy plectrum use. Like the overspray, the final lacquered coating is also meticulously aged by hand to evoke time-honoured cracking and then finally polished.
The team’s accurate and highly professional approach to guitar aging applies to all hardware, which now includes brass back plates, smooth-geared Grover 502C machine heads, chrome Guitar Tech strap locks, Licensed Bigsby vibrato and, both neck and bridge, Bare Knuckle Old Guard pickup covers.
Wired with vintage CTS logarithmic pots, the Bare Knuckle Old Guard pickups feature alnico 2 magnets, delivering a warm, bright tone with superb dynamics and extended harmonics. Looking the part within black surrounds, they are perfect for all styles from blues to rock, country or pop, whilst enhance the sonic versatility of this beautiful guitar’s natural tone.
It’s these fine details that make this stunning model another hand-created one-off, ultra-realistic distressed guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
