It’s a known fact, rock stars love expensive rare guitars and cars, many have their guitars refinished the same colour as the sleek bodies of their fave set of wheels, with stunning results.
Enter then, the ProShop Vintage V100 ‘Jeep Green’, a beautiful guitar that started life as the classic Vintage ReIssued V100GT, having now been through the hands of the world famous Vintage team of skilled luthiers.
With a beautiful ‘Jeep Green’ cellulose finish offset with cream body binding, black pickup covers, black switch ring poker chip, black control knobs and polished aluminium Bigsby B70 vibrato, this gorgeous single cutaway, does indeed evoke an enormous amount of individual style and class.
For that subtle ‘driven in’ theme the top lacquer coat and all hardware have been given a subtle aged hue, the way only the Vintage team know how, whilst under the hood, the construction, tonal characteristics and playability that have made the original V100GT a best-seller in itself, still remain.
These include a solid carved mahogany body, with a graceful descending bass side shoulder and an ingeniously-designed offset heel providing improved access to the upper reaches of the fretboard.
Guitar players the world over have commented on Vintage playability and tone, loving the V100 Series one-piece mahogany necks with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile and the power and clarity of the Wilkinson W90SK stacked ceramic pickups.
You, may or may not own a vehicle with the same shade of green, or have the ability to sweep pick, finger tap, play with your teeth or behind your head, but you have to agree, owning the Vintage ProShop Vintage V100 ‘Jeep Green’ guitar is indeed, one of life’s genuine pleasures.
