When we say “hand created, one-off designs, no two the same” we mean just that.
If it’s the heavily distressed look you are after, you’ll have to go a very long way to beat the incredibly authentic details of the Vintage V52 ProShop Unique, an outstanding instrument that pays homage to this beloved model of the past.
This is certainly a ‘player’s guitar’ right from the start, with the original Butterscotch finish taken back to the Eastern poplar body in all the correct friction-worn areas with hand tools, and like all hardware, has been re stained with a final clear acrylic coat.
We already know this guitar is constructed from the finest tonewoods, is loaded with time tested hardware and sounds stunning, and now with these killer ProShop looks, is visually arresting.
It’s the fine details like body lacquer checking, the rusty hue of the hardware and amber lacquered one-piece maple neck and fingerboard that make the Vintage V52 ProShop Unique Butterscotch, another hand-created one-off, ultra-realistic, heavily distressedguitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
The guitar has received a full Proshop set-up.
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.
Eastern poplar body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with correctly radiused contoured body.
The Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge featured on the Vintage V52 is a masterpiece of design, eliminating age-old intonation problems often found in three saddle, fixed bridge designs.
Pair of Wilkinson Single Coils for traditional tones combined with contemporary power, courtesy of a WVTN pickup at the neck and a WVOB in the bridge position.
Single master Volume and Tone controls with three-way pickup selector switch.
Wilkinson WJ55S patented E-Z-Lok machine heads. Simple, effective locking action for increased tuning stability.
Hard rock Maple with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile for instant comfort, speed, accuracy and great feel.
Traditional 10" radius fingerboard provides positive feel and superior playability.
22 Medium profile frets add to comfort, accuracy and overall positive feel of the Vintage V52.
