The Vintage ProShop 'The Brick' is yet another fine example of the inspiration, imagination and the incredible amount of talent within the Vintage Guitar ProShop Team of highly skilled luthiers.
What better way than to customise an electric guitar that’s already recognised by guitar players around the world, for its all-mahogany construction, playability and exceptional tone…than the stunning Vintage ReIssued Series V100BB.
The flawless, high gloss black finished remains on the body’s back and sides, one-piece neck and headstock, whilst the carved top looks stunning and totally unique, now with a custom ‘running bond’ brick pattern over a subtle blue/purple/green metallic tri-colour blend.
As with all Vintage ProShop guitars, it’s the fine details that personalise these exquisite electric guitars, the high quality gold plated hardware for example, that includes Grover® tulip machine heads, pickup covers, Wilkinson T.O.M. bridge and tailpiece, offset with black scratchplate and abalone capped volume and tone controls.
Needless to say, with an evolutionary body shape that includes a graceful descending bass side shoulder and an ingeniously-designed offset heel, access to the upper reaches of the 22 fret fingerboard is indeed, effortless.
The rosewood fingerboard itself, provides outstanding tonal transfer to a pair of gold plated Wilkinson MWVC Double Coil pickups, the Vintage ProShop 'The Brick' is a statement instrument that's capable of handling any style of music.
Aside from the attention to the fine details of the superb aesthetics, 'The Brick' comes with a Vintage ProShop Set-Up:
- Fret-level, crown and polish.
- Fingerboard dress and comfort treatment.
- Truss rod adjustment and set.
- Action height, radius, intonation and pickup height adjustment.

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!
