From the offset, the visual concept of the Vintage ReIssued Series V100 solid bodied guitar, is stunning and screams with attitude.
It’s from this classic series that the V100 has had the privilege of passing through the hands of the Vintage ProShop team of highly skilled craftsman, emerging as a beautiful looking instrument, the Vintage ProShop V100PU1003.
The original V100 has been re sprayed Inca Silver, which in turn has received an expertly applied purple stain and a final nitro cellulose finish, the results are simply stunning. This gorgeous finish is offset with cream body binding, chrome/matt black bridge and tailpiece, black/silver top-hat control knobs, black pickguard and black pickup surrounds.
Like all Vintage instruments, the playability of the ProShop V100PU1003 speaks for itself and sounds as good as it looks, loaded with a pair of wax-potted Seymour Duncan ‘Hottie’ humbuckers with alnico II magnets, renowned for creamy mids, looking extra cool with ‘flamed etched’ covers.
Both humbuckers offer a balanced coil configuration, specifically designed for their positions within the guitar. Played clean, the neck pickup, with an output of 7.3k delivers the warmest mellow jazz tones, whilst the bridge unit at 8.5k has the edge. The delivery is as sweet as honey and will more than please the hardest tone aficionado.
Need we say, add crunch or distortion and the Vintage ProShop V100PU1003 is perfect for overdriven chords and soaring solos, the ideal studio or stage guitar and the perfect choice for clean, mellow jazz, blues and hard rock…50’s style.
With meticulous attention paid to the fine details of this superb instrument, we salute the luthiery skills of the Vintage ProShop team who also give the V100PU1003 a full ProShop set up that 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.
