The Vintage ProShop 'The Brick' is yet another fine example of the inspiration, imagination and the incredible amount of talent within the Vintage Guitar ProShop Team of highly skilled luthiers.
What better way than to customise an electric guitar that’s already recognised by guitar players around the world, for its all-mahogany construction, playability and exceptional tone…than the stunning Vintage ReIssued Series V100BB.
The flawless, high gloss black finished remains on the body’s back and sides, one-piece neck and headstock, whilst the carved top looks stunning and totally unique, now with a custom ‘running bond’ brick pattern over a subtle blue/purple/green metallic tri-colour blend.
As with all Vintage ProShop guitars, it’s the fine details that personalise these exquisite electric guitars, the high quality gold plated hardware for example, that includes Grover® tulip machine heads, pickup covers, Wilkinson T.O.M. bridge and tailpiece, offset with black scratchplate and abalone capped volume and tone controls.
Needless to say, with an evolutionary body shape that includes a graceful descending bass side shoulder and an ingeniously-designed offset heel, access to the upper reaches of the 22 fret fingerboard is indeed, effortless.
The rosewood fingerboard itself, provides outstanding tonal transfer to a pair of gold plated Wilkinson MWVC Double Coil pickups, the Vintage ProShop 'The Brick' is a statement instrument that's capable of handling any style of music.
Aside from the attention to the fine details of the superb aesthetics, 'The Brick' comes with a Vintage ProShop Set-Up:
