Starting life as a V6MRSSB with a Sunburst finish, the body has been sprayed with a white acrylic undercoat with an acrylic Ventura Green lacquered topcoat, then professionally aged to reveal areas of the original Sunburst and natural wood on the body front and back. The neck itself is a thing of beauty, sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look, along with the headstock and classic cigarette burn, is given a acrylic amber coating.
The vintage charm is enhanced further with pickup covers, scratchplate and controls also receiving subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture.
The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Ventura Green/Tobacco is another hand created one-off, ultra-realistic, heavily distressed guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
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.
