As the name suggests, the Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Boulevard Black Fire, is a scorched testament to a rescued guitar before it suffered a complete meltdown in a fire. A vision of smoke and minor heat damage is evident within the black re spayed body and acrylic lacquer runs, crackled glazing and bubbling effects all as a result of high temperatures.
This unusual and yet unique effect has then been sealed with a final coat of clear lacquer, while the ‘I’ve been on fire theme’ extends to the singed effect within the black pearloid scratchplate, pickup covers and pitted hardware.
The fire damage effect extends from the rear of the body to the heel of the neck area, where the actual 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.
Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Boulevard Black Fire is another hand created one-off, ultra-realistic guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
Vintage ProShop Set-Up includes:
- Fret-level, crown and polish.
- Fingerboard dress and comfort treatment.
