Originally a Vintage Semi-Hollow V72, a well respected guitar in its own right from the Vintage ReIssued series, this stunning ProShop Blue Over Tobacco V72, aside from its incredible looks, is yet another classic Vintage guitar that’s been through the hands of the Vintage ProShop team of skilled luthiers.
Custom aging is without doubt an area where the ProShop team excel with an unrivalled inheritance, right down to the Laguna Blue over spray that’s received wear and tear scuffs and abrasions by hand, revealing areas of the original Tobacco Burst finish. Fine details also include subtle aging of the body binding and 3 ply scratchplate.
Not only an instrument with one-off custom individuality, like the original Vintage ReIssued V72, this gorgeous ProShop model is also one of many Vintage guitars that’s number one in the rack of the professionals, right there when there’s a need for powerful, beefy chords or soaring solos in the studio or live on stage.
With a hard rock maple neck and 22 fret rosewood fingerboard and chamfered heel, the ProShop V72 is a delight to perform with, whilst the chambered alder body alone provides a huge increase in resonance adding an acoustic property to the guitar's amplified tone.
Couple this, with a Wilkinson WDG Ceramic Mini Double Coil pickup in the neck position and a Wilkinson WTB Alnico Single Coil at the bridge for that unmistakable classic chime and twang associated with this iconic design, with unsurpassed sonic versatility in abundance…or should we just say this ProShop guitar ‘kicks you…know what’
It’s the finest details within the incredibly authentic and expertly applied worn concept that have earned the Vintage ProShop Series guitars, respect from players around the world.
It’s been said many times: Do the Vintage ProShop Series of instruments really sound as cool as they look?…you bet!
