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.

About Vintage Proshop
For years now, our Vintage® technicians and designers have been listening to suggestions from players all around the world.
We've taken those ideas, blended them with our own concepts and visions and in January 2019, Vintage® guitars launched the Vintage® ProShop® UNIQUE concept in the UK and the US, with the talented luthiers and builders in the Vintage® UK and US workshops producing a handful of Vintage® ProShop® UNIQUE guitars, one off master-built instruments created with love, care, and the traditional Vintage® values of super high specification and astonishing ‘bang for the buck’, as workshop concept guitars, flights of fancy and the wild imaginations of our ProShop® teams let loose, using exclusive combinations of finishes, parts, hardware, pickups and accessories to create wonderful one-offs, some of which may make their way into future Vintage® series production guitars and basses.
Aside from the attention to the fine details of the superb aesthetics, Vintage® ProShop® ‘Unique’ guitars, have hardware and electronics from a host of amazing British made and Internationally famous brands, selected to suit the style, vibe and finish of each guitar, with wear patterns and ‘patina’ accurately crafted and applied to emulate the look and feel of a guitar owned and played for decades. All work is by hand and every finish is an individual one-off, with various weathered distressing processes that gives new guitars a killer vintage look, to deliver guitars that exceed the expectations of today's discerning guitarists.
Keep a close eye on the Vintage® ProShop® pages at collections/proshop as the ProShop teams will continue to produce a very limited number of ProShop® UNIQUES, which will post to the Vintage and JHS websites when completed and will be sold on a first come first served basis!
