The original single-cutaway V100MRTSB is indeed a stylish work horse, rock machine in itself and now, after many hours with the Vintage ProShop design team, emerges as the V100 ProShop Unique, with a heavily distressed Tobacco Sunburt finish.
You have to admire how these master artisans pay close attention to detail within accurately worn areas of the two-piece carved maple top, body bindings, aged trapezoid fingerboard inlays, severe buckle abrasion on the back of the mahogany body and ongoing wear on the back of the neck.
All hardware including upgraded Grover 102C machine heads, saddles, bridge, tailpiece and pickup covers also emulate serious corrosion from a player who sweats ruthlessly night after night on stage.
There’s nothing subtle about the theme of the Vintage V100 ProShop Unique ~ Tobacco Sunburt, it’s an all out beast, a brutal beauty with killer looks offering superb playability with classic double coil output and tone.

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!
