The original single-cutaway V100MRTSB is indeed a stylish work horse, rock machine in itself and now, after many hours with the Vintage ProShop design team, emerges as the V100 ProShop Unique, with a heavily distressed Tobacco Sunburt finish.
You have to admire how these master artisans pay close attention to detail within accurately worn areas of the two-piece carved maple top, body bindings, aged trapezoid fingerboard inlays, severe buckle abrasion on the back of the mahogany body and ongoing wear on the back of the neck.
All hardware including upgraded Grover 102C machine heads, saddles, bridge, tailpiece and pickup covers also emulate serious corrosion from a player who sweats ruthlessly night after night on stage.
There’s nothing subtle about the theme of the Vintage V100 ProShop Unique ~ Tobacco Sunburt, it’s an all out beast, a brutal beauty with killer looks offering superb playability with classic double coil output and tone.
