The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Sunset Sunburst started out as a popular V6SSB. After a painstaking number of hours with the Vintage design team, it now overruns with all the emotional charm and elegance of a ‘well used, well loved guitar’ from the 1950’s…with a twist.
It follows the reversed headstock trend, where players want to be part of this timeless, heritage design, but desire to be a little different. Classic vintage appointments for this era include the 8 hole, single-ply scratchplate with oversize screw heads, while the aged charm is enhanced further where the pickup covers and controls receive subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture.
The body and neck now have a satin matt acrylic lacquer finish, polished out to enhance the accurately applied wear and tear effect. The neck itself is a thing of beauty, sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look and, along with the headstock is given a cellulose amber coating.
The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Sunset Sunburst 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.
