With an awesome Surf Green finish, the Vintage VJ74 ProShop Unique, looks like it’s been providing the thunderous low end of a band’s rhythm section for decades. There’s a solid punchy feel and look about the VJ74, with a definite workhorse aura that says it’s also been well played and well loved over the years.
Formerly a VJ74MRSSB from the ever-popular Vintage ICON series of high quality bass guitars, VJ74 ProShop Unique has also had the ‘magical wear and tear treatment’ from the Vintage ProShop design team. The original Sunset Sunburst finish has been over spayed with a blue cellulose finish, yellowed with an additional amber cellulose, then heated and cooled with freezer spray to create an incredibly authentic soft-relic appearance.
The neck is sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look, along with the headstock, is also sealed with a cellulose amber coating.
It’s the fine details like the rusty hue and dirt build up on the machine heads, control panel, bridge and saddles that qualify the Vintage VJ74 ProShop Unique ~ Surf Green, as another hand-created one-off, ultra-realistic, ‘well loved, well played’ 4 string bass guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
The guitar has received a full Proshop set-up.
Vintage ProShop Set-Up 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.
