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.
