The highly skilled luthiers in the Vintage workshop have picked another beauty from the Vintage® ReIssued™ Series, the single cutaway V62 which, for many years has been one of the favourites for serious electric guitar players around the world.Re sprayed in a beautiful Metallic Blue with a cellulose top coat and hand applied lacquer cracking, the V62 now wears a coat that has been subtly aged with meticulously authentic accuracy, appealing to connoisseurs who want a professionally built guitar as close as they can get to a gig-worn, well looked after guitar from the 1950’s and early 60’s.
Aged hardware also includes the bridge cover which, for many owners of early models has so often become lost or abandoned over the decades. Originally designed as protection for the strumming hand and to help shield the bridge pickup from feedback issues, like the models of yesteryear, the bridge cover completes the gorgeous worn nickel chrome picture.
These cool aesthetics are now offset with a single-ply satin black Bakelite scratchplate, enhancing the 50’s/60’s vibe and a perfect match to the worn hardware.
Fitted with a pair of Wilkinson single coils the Vintage ProShop V62 with a hard rock maple neck and 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, effortlessly delivers all the classic tones associated with this iconic designed guitar, ideal for country, jazz, blues and rock styles. A Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge, Wilkinson Deluxe WJ55S machine heads and a friction free graphite nut, ensure tuning is rock solid and intonation is pin-point accurate.

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!
