There are some serious upgrades within the V100 ProShop Boulevard Black over the original V100MRJBM it started life as. By default, and thanks to the Vintage ProShop Unique design team, it certainly looks like this killer guitar has indeed, had a hard life.
The original Gold Top finish has been over sprayed with a black acrylic lacquer and taken back in all the friction worn areas on the solid mahogany body, to replicate, bracelet, belt buckle and heavy plectrum wear. This accurate and highly professional approach to guitar aging extends to the fast, one-piece mahogany neck, yellowed fingerboard, body bindings and pickup surrounds.
Initially, the original V100MRJBM was an outstanding rock machine in itself, and now upgraded as the V100 ProShop Unique, is loaded with an over-wound Supro Super Alnico pickup in the bridge position and Supro Vistatone in the neck position, for immense power and outstanding tonal abilities, both looking well worn with distressed chrome covers.
The added installation of the licensed Bigsby vibrato is no doubt one of the visual and sonic highlights of the V100 ProShop guitar.
With its heavily distressed Boulevard Black finish, this powerhouse electric guitar is yet another hand created one off, ultra realistic, heavily distressed guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
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.
