The Vintage Design team are lucky enough to have spent many hours with guitars from the 1950’s to create the incredible V6 ProShop Unique, Jungmeister Original Classic Burst.
The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique Jungmeister Original Classic Burst, has been crafted by hand to replicate a guitar from 1957. The attention to detail throughout this beautiful instrument really is a work of art and science. Many hours have been spent with hand tools to produce the most stunning aged effect that replicates a guitar that’s been played within an inch of its life and back again.
The satin finish on the body, neck and fingerboard has a lustre that reflects an incredibly authentic, cracked lacquered effect, while the neck itself, along with the headstock and classic cigarette burns is given a cellulose amber coating.
The vintage charm is enhanced further with typical grey areas of string wear on the fingerboard, while the pickup covers, 3-ply scratchplate and controls also receive subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture…..note the dirt build-up on the volume and tone controls.
The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Jungmeister Original Classic Burst, is another hand-created one-off, ultra-realistic, ‘well loved, well played’ guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
Vintage ProShop Set-Up includes:
- Fret-level, crown and polish.
- Fingerboard dress and comfort treatment.
- Truss rod adjustment and set.
- Action height, radius, intonation and pickup height adjustment.
- Nut slot regulation.
