You can also be forgiven for thinking such amazing details were describing the gorgeous Vintage® V100™ ProShop® Custom ~ Emerald Green.
The very popular Vintage ReIssued Series V100 solid bodied, single cutaway guitar alone is a best seller in its own right, earning enormous respect from musicians around the world for its sonic versatility, exceptional build and outstanding playability.
Now, having been through the hands of the Vintage ProShop team of highly skilled luthiers, the V100 emerges looking stunning with a gorgeous emerald green metallic finish, offset with cream body binding, cream pickup covers, white scratchplate, gold hardware and amber control knobs.
Many hours have been spent taking back the original finish of the maple veneer top, then applying a new white undercoat followed by this vivid emerald green metallic finish, with a final cellulose top coat.
Subtle aging with authentic lacquer cracks have been all expertly undertaken by hand, the way only the Vintage team know how, as the V100 Emerald Green emerges as a beautiful looking instrument that’s been played and cherished by the owner for decades.
