Aptly named ‘The Boss’, this beautiful Vintage ProShop guitar featuring an incredibly authentic distressing process, certainly looks like it's spent decades being ‘Worn In The USA’.
This exquisite guitar is yet another classic from the totally unique line of Vintage ProShop electric guitars, showcasing the incredible talents of the Vintage team of highly skilled luthiers.
Starting life as a distressed V52MRBS, a classic model in its own right, this gorgeous guitar maintains all the essential bullet points that have made this iconic model, the archetypal workhorse electric guitar, capable of providing a multitude of musical tones from its simple array of pickups and controls.
For an accurate representation, the team have spent many hours hand sanding the original distressed Butterscotch finish, following the grain and revealing areas of the eastern poplar body, then adding a final amber top coat, offset with a black Bakelite pickguard and authentically aged bolt-on maple neck, fingerboard, headstock and hardware.
For that massively inspirational, fat, powerful chiming tone, this beautiful guitar features a set of balanced Bare Knuckle, high output ‘The Boss’ pickups in the neck and bridge positions, both with extended bass and treble response, delivering compressed dynamics and excellent sustain, whilst exceptionally rich in harmonic detail.
Additional hardware changes also include, a set of super smooth Wilkinson WJO7CR E-Z Lok machine heads, ensuring accurate tuning stability, whilst a chrome, six-saddle Gotoh GTC201 bridge offers player comfort, and superior intonation with an enhanced low-end response.
From high profile gigs to just ‘Dancing in the Park’, this beautiful instrument effortlessly delivers exceptional tonal versatility, covering all music styles, from county to jazz, blues to rock.
The Vintage ‘The Boss’ is another hand created one-off, ultra-realistic, heavily distressed guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
