One thing in life is certain, let the Vintage ProShop team loose on a Vintage classic guitar and the results are simply stunning.
This time the afore mentioned classic was originally the popular V72FTB from the Vintage ReIssued Series. A beautiful guitar in itself, with a chambered alder body and book matched flamed maple veneer top and, like all Vintage guitars and basses, recognised by guitar players of all styles for its exceptional playability, superb tonal characteristics and high quality hardware.
After a format which the Vintage ProShop Team describe as their deconstruction-reconstruction process, the V72FTB emerges as the incredible Vintage V72 ProShop Unique ‘Flamed Pink Relic’.
The original Tobacco Sunburst body has been over-sprayed in black, while the top now features a shocking-pink burst. For the incredibly authentic distressed theme, this eye catching finish has then been expertly and professionally aged, again, by hand, to reveal areas of the original colour and natural wood on the body front and back, then lacquered and finally flattened and polished.
To offset this vibrant pink colour and enhance the relic’d theme, the scratchplate, control plate, controls knobs and bridge/pickup plate, have been over-sprayed in satin matt black and aged accordingly for a stunning cosmetic effect. The sleek, fast hard rock maple neck has also been carefully aged for that unmistakable killer look, along with the headstock and visually soiled machine heads.
The Vintage V72 ProShop Unique - Flamed Pink Relic is another hand created one-off, ultra-realistic, distressed guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team, happy to be tickled pink, whilst also born to rock and roll.
ProShop setup includes:
- 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.
