SOLD ~ Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Laguna Blue

SKU: V6PU0236


When the Vintage ICON Series of electric guitars was launched with their battle-hardened road warrior uniforms, guitar players and collectors came out of the woodwork asking “Can these guitars really sound and play as good as they look?” Since then they’ve been a number one for thousands of guitarists and seen on stages all over the world.  

It’s the stunning V6MRBB ICON that the Vintage ProShop V6PU0236 is based on, now blessed with the magic touch of the highly skilled Vintage ProShop team of master craftsmen. The original distressed black body paint has been sanded back yet again, re sprayed a gorgeous sonic blue, given a final clear cellulose finish with many hours spent hand-aging in all the right places, and applying lacquer cracks… the only way these master craftsmen know how. 

The original aged white scratchplate is replaced with a beautiful 3 ply, 11-hole tortoise version, and, like all hardware, controls and pickup covers receive subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture. The amber stained, hard rock maple, skunk striped neck is also blessed with lacquer cracks, whilst new additions include a precision cut bone nut. 

Vintage Pro Shop V6PU0236 replicates the beautiful, worn-in look and feel of an instrument that has paid its dues, without investing the lifetime's worth of woodshedding, rehearsing, performing and travelling. This is a guitar that already looks like your lifetime companion; the best part is, your journey is just beginning. Play on. 

Aside from the attention to the fine details of the superb aesthetics, the ProShop V6PU0236 comes with a full ProShop in-house set-up.

  • 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.
