Vintage®SYNERGY
Are you one of those guitarists whose main instrument is electric?

Are you worried that an acoustic guitar wouldn’t somehow be ‘you’, that it would just be too different for you contemplate trying?

The new ‘Synergy Series’ of electro-acoustics from Vintage might change your mind. With a truly distinctive look that’s an attractive hybrid of both electric and acoustic intruments, this new guitar range is designed to please players of both instrument categories.

Check the distinctive 6-in-line tuner arrangement on the asymmetrical headstock, mated to a cutaway-style body offering good upper fret access. We think you’ll be familiar with how that looks.

Pick the guitar up and feel the smooth universal C-section neck profile, and the fine gauge fretwire on the gently-cambered fingerboard. If you’re an electric player, this is starting to feel like home.

The Synergy’s pretty easy to hold on to while you’re playing it, with its lightweight slim, textured finish partial bowl back design. And you can plug it in, because Synergy Series instrumenst are equipped with a Fishman Sonicore pickup system, mated to an easy-to-operate Fishamn Isys T preamp system, mounted in the top rim of the guitar body.

Vintage Synergy. Electric players, be prepared to feel right at home.

Acoustic players, you’re already there.

A compact metal construction – it measures 8.5cm x 3.7cm x 1.2cm – with a sliding lid and a rather eye-catching Vintage design , loaded with 12 Vintage-branded plectrums.

The picks are made by guitar accessory titans Dunlop, to the specifications of the monumental Tortex Standard line. You'll get six each of the .73 and the .88mm gauge plectrums, and they'll all come in black with that tidy Vintage logo.
