For decades the colour pink has been regarded as a fashion statement, a radiant colour that’s often chosen for designs with the highest esteem within clothes, cars… and guitars, seen here on this incredible Vintage ProShop V6 Custom.
Already a classic Vintage V6 model in itself, this stunning guitar, like all models in the Vintage ProShop Series, now evokes stunning individuality, as a one-off custom guitar that’s been through the hands of the Vintage ProShop team of skilled luthiers.
Pink guitar lovers of this world will adore this stunning double cutaway HSS solid bodied guitar, while guitar players alone, will be in awe of the incredibly detailed hand-distressing, undertaken by the skilled team of Vintage luthiers.
Originally a Tobacco Sunburst V6, from the popular Vintage ICON Series, a classic model in itself, now over sprayed with this exuberant, striking colour, which has been taken back in all the right places, to reveal areas of the Eastern poplar body, offset with a 3-ply pearloid scratchplate which also features highly effective aging, focusing around the controls and pickup covers.
This meticulously applied aging theme is also featured within the hard rock maple neck and headstock, whilst the smooth 22 fret rosewood fingerboard lets you reach extra high notes not often associated with this guitar design.
Needless to say, fully loaded with Wilkinson hardware, this beautiful Vintage ProShop V6 Distressed Pink model, delivers an unsurpassed performance and tone, featuring a balanced pair of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups, with staggered, chamfered edged pole pieces in the neck and middle positions producing flagship single coil tones with contemporary power.
The centre pickup is reverse wound with reverse polarity for hum cancelling duties in switch position 2 and 4, whilst the high output Wilkinson WVC Double Coil at the bridge, delivers soaring sonics in abundance.
Time-tested hardware that’s also been through the subtle distressing process, includes Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok machine heads and a Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge which is a masterpiece of detail in itself.
The missing vibrato back plate reveals the classic 3-spring vibrato set up, assuring spring and string tensions are equal, whilst the precision cut GraphTech nut also
ensures perfect return to pitch, from the shaking of chords or solo notes with a gentle tease or aggressive vibrato attack.
It’s the finest details within the incredibly authentic and expertly applied worn concept that have earned the Vintage ProShop Series guitars, respect from players around the world.
It’s been said many times: Do the Vintage ProShop Series of instruments really sound as cool as they look?…you bet!
