With an underlying ‘ultra-cool custom’ theme, the Pro Shop V6PU0449 features accurate authenticity of a well used, well loved guitar that’s been played for decades. An evenly applied 3-tone Sunset Sunburst finish, with a lacquered coating, has been painstakingly worked by hand by the Vintage Pro Shop team, to represent aged cracking, before being taken back to a gorgeous, polished matt finish.   

The visual concept is indeed, stunning, with a 3-ply white mother of pearl effect scratchplate offset with a trio of balanced Wilkinson WVS Alnico V pickups with aged cream covers.  

Based on the classic Vintage ReIssued SeriesV6SSB, the Pro Shop V6PU0449 is built on a solid foundation of timeless Vintage designs, time-tested Wilkinson hardware and hand-picked tonewoods that have made these guitars themselves, Vintage classics.  

With meticulous attention paid to the fine details of the superb aesthetics, the V6PU0449 comes with a Vintage ProShop Set-Up: 

  • Fret-level, crown and polish.
  • Fingerboard dress and comfort treatment.
  • Truss rod adjustment and set.
  • Action height, radius, intonation and pickup height adjustment.
  • Nut slot regulation.
