The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Sunset Sunburst started out as a popular V6SSB. After a painstaking number of hours with the Vintage design team, it now overruns with all the emotional charm and elegance of a ‘well used, well loved guitar’ from the 1950’s…with a twist.
It follows the reversed headstock trend, where players want to be part of this timeless, heritage design, but desire to be a little different. Classic vintage appointments for this era include the 8 hole, single-ply scratchplate with oversize screw heads, while the aged charm is enhanced further where the pickup covers and controls receive subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture.
The body and neck now have a satin matt acrylic lacquer finish, polished out to enhance the accurately applied wear and tear effect. The neck itself is a thing of beauty, sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look and, along with the headstock is given a cellulose amber coating.
The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Sunset Sunburst is another hand-created one-off, ultra-realistic, ‘well loved, well played’ 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.

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!
