"These Vintage guitars are amazing...
I play and own various guitars that are three or
four times the price, but I really can't tell
the difference."

Paul Guerin
The Quireboys/ Joe Elliott's Down 'N' Outz
“I haven't stopped playing the guitars, since
I received them!”... “The range of sounds
from the pick-ups is astounding but most
importantly, they all ring loud & true before
you even plug them in!

Dave 'Bucket' Colwell
Bucket & Co./Bad Company
"My Vintage V52 is one of the best electric
guitars I've played, and I can't put it down
– a friend of mine had one, and after I had
a quick play on it I just knew I had to get one!"

THOMAS BLUGSignatureSeries
Vintage® V6MRHDX ICON Electric Guitar

Over recent years, many guitar enthusiasts have admired the virtuosic electric guitar style of Thomas Blug, one of Europe’s most respected players.

In addition, Thomas’ work as a product development consultant and product demonstrator for Hughes & Kettner guitar amplification means he is a regular must-see feature at music expos and shows worldwide, alongside his own sought-after CD releases and tuition DVDs, as well as performances with the Thomas Blug Band which includes keyboardist Thijs Van Leer, erstwhile mainstay of Dutch rock legends, Focus.

Thomas has one of the most recognisable guitar sounds in the world, playing with a fluid, melodic and powerful style, and has over the years, become synonymous with his much-loved and instantly recognisable electric guitar, a well-used faded Olympic White ‘61.

As a player who has been the inspiration to thousands of players, Thomas chose Trev Wilkinson, and UK guitar brand Vintage®, to prove the point that it is possible to create in a signature guitar an instrument which faithfully recreates the unique attributes of his beloved white ‘61.
With its battle-scarred body, custom electronics and personalised switching all added to the already exceptionally well-specc’d Vintage® ReIssued Series™ V6 guitar, players looking for an edge with this iconic design, and who also perhaps aspire to emulate Thomas’ spine- tingling sound, can now buy exactly the same instrument which he uses in his day-to-day work.

“Outstanding”, comments Thomas on his Vintage V6 Signature Model, which we’ve all come to refer to as the “ElastaPlastaBlugaCasta” in reference to the first ever sample the Vintage team showed me 4 years ago, with the brand name covered by a Band-Aid®. “To achieve all this, in an instrument which literally anyone can afford, even a first time buyer, is an unbelievable achievement. Working closely with Trev Wilkinson to translate every subtle part of my guitar has been a labour of love.”

“Working with the Vintage® team has proven that there are still people in the commercial side of our business who are total ‘guitar heads’ and who really do care about producing honest instruments without compromise,” continues Thomas. “Getting the best guitars into players’ hands without emptying their wallets and bank accounts! Quite amazing.”

Vintage® V6MRHDX ICON Electric Guitar

The V6MRHDX's body is alder, and it features a hard maple, bolt-on neck with a 71/⁄2” radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 frets. All the hardware is genuine Wilkinson, including the three vintage-voiced single coil pickups with aged ivory covers and Thomas's beloved Bukka switch, which is operated by a push/push pot on the back tone control and provides a hum-cancelling, subtly tone-altering extra dummy coil when needed. And it's all wrapped up in the beautiful Vintage Icon package, with the guitar's body and parts all meticulously aged to simulate years of onstage use. Topped off with stunning original artwork, this is a must-have guitar.

“I wanted a guitar that looks cool – like Hendrix's, but with all the features of my signature Vintage Icon V6 guitar,” he says. “And it had to play like all the guitars I usually play: pickups in the same position and not a reversed body.” True to Thomas' requests, the guitar features the same top quality specs as his treasured '61 and his original Vintage signature, but comes with a reversed headstock and hand-applied graphics created by German artist Daniel Hahn especially for the Summer Of Love.

Vintage® V6MRBK ICON Electric Guitar

Guitarists may very well recognise the heavy wear ‘n’ tear pattern scarring on the glossless Boulevard Black body, with the guitar’s stripped maple neck and fingerboard also emulating the ageing process of countless hours of use in rehearsals, recordings, in and out of flightcases and onstage on numerous international tours.

Nothing gives off that unique, so-cool vibe like a guitar that’s obviously seen some serious use. Like a battle-scarred warrior that always gives its best, the instrument’s character shines through the worn finish, saying ‘this guitar has paid its dues’.
Its sound has the heart and soul of a thousand gigs in it and you can feel it when you play it.
It feels special to hold, and special to play.

V100MRPGM Distressed Lemon Drop – £459.00

The reverse-fitted neck humbucker and out of phase centre position wiring created one of the most recognisable guitar sounds of the genre
– real “Black Magic”. Differential bell type control knobs and sealed gear replacement tuners all add to the mojo.... Still got the blues?

Trev's V100 “Lemon Drop” is a real tribute.
"When I was young and in a band, we supported the original Fleetwood Mac to play at a gig we'd organised. Fleetwood Mac let us use their PA, and Peter Green even let me use his amp! He wouldn’t let me use his guitar but he was always my favourite guitarist....”

"I've owned most of the classic electric guitars over my 40 year career and the 'Lemon Drop' has got them all beat".
Jim Cregan (Rod Stewart/Steve Harley)


"These Vintage guitars are amazing... I play and own various guitars that are three or four times the price, but I really can't tell the difference ".
Paul Guerin (The Quireboys)


"I had to get hold of one of these Vintage® 'Lemon Drops' for myself".

Vintage Guitar Review
Nothing gives off that unique, so-cool vibe like a guitar that’s obviously seen some serious use. Like a battle-scarred warrior that always gives its best, the instrument’s character shines through the worn finish, saying ‘this guitar has paid its dues’. Its sound has the heart and soul of a thousand gigs in it and you can feel it when you play it. It feels special to hold, and special to play.

But how many people can afford the vintage instrument of their dreams? That special instrument which displays a unique level of wear from decades of playing – at home, numerous rehearsal sessions, smokey pubs to working mens’ clubs, gigs and tours at home and abroad? Or how many guitarists can wait 20 years before their own guitar starts to show that kind of time-related character?

Now you don’t have to wait! You don’t even have to re-mortgage the house to make the payment. Renowned guitar specialists Vintage®, in conjunction with acknowledged guitar guru, Trevor Wilkinson, have a new specially-aged electric guitar range that ticks all the boxes – the Vintage ICON™ Series!

These fantastic guitars, fully equipped with equally aged Wilkinson tuners, hardware and pickups look like they’ve been played for decades with all the marks, wear and tear to prove it. They’ve been through the mill but they’re cool and ready for the next gig.

Get one of the new Vintage ICON™ Series guitars and save 20 years of your life! Best of all, you won’t believe the price...
