In a previous life the Vintage V100 ProShop Unique ~ Arctic White was, (and still is) a cool, balanced high output tone machine, that can rock the house all night long.
Now, after a unique ageing process from the Vintage ProShop design team, the V100 ProShop Unique retains the original Arctic White finish over the solid, carved mahogany body, bindings and one-piece mahogany neck, with expertly applied scuffs and abrasions, then re lacquered to replicate a guitar that’s certainly paid its dues.
Fine touches for an alternative visual approach, include the Vintage tulip machine head buttons, pickup surrounds, pickup selector switch and volume and tone controls sprayed red, then meticulously aged by hand and offset with chrome hardware.
The V100 ProShop Unique is a delight to perform with, the neck itself is super fast, with a palm friendly, comfy Vintage ‘soft C’ profile and with a naturally low action, this guitar can rock out with the best of them. There’s also a cool twist within the electrics, where the 2nd tone control now operates as a kill switch with a non-latching push pot.
With its soft-touch aging and relic treatment, Vintage V100 ProShop Unique is a super fab looker and another hand created one off, ultra realistic, well loved, well played powerhouse electric guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
