Originally a best-selling V52, from the very popular Vintage® ReIssued™ Series this superb model has been through the hands of the highly skilled team of Vintage ProShop luthiers.
Now, with an impeccable Surf Green nitro cellulose finish over the solid alder, single-cutaway body, the V52624PU0102 with a colour matched reversed headstock and 24 fret, double-octave hard rock maple fingerboard and neck with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile, this exquisite model, with Wilkinson WJ55S machine heads and Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge with staggered brass saddles, is a delight to perform with.
A pair of Wilkinson single coil pickups deliver a powerful punch, with an abundance of traditional tones...and that mind-blowing mirrored scratchplate and truss cover...just speaks for itself.
The guitar has also 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.
Alder 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.

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!
