With an underlying ‘ultra-cool custom’ theme, the Pro Shop V6PU0449 features accurate authenticity of a well used, well loved guitar that’s been played for decades. An evenly applied 3-tone Sunset Sunburst finish, with a lacquered coating, has been painstakingly worked by hand by the Vintage Pro Shop team, to represent aged cracking, before being taken back to a gorgeous, polished matt finish.
The visual concept is indeed, stunning, with a 3-ply white mother of pearl effect scratchplate offset with a trio of balanced Wilkinson WVS Alnico V pickups with aged cream covers.
Based on the classic Vintage ReIssued SeriesV6SSB, the Pro Shop V6PU0449 is built on a solid foundation of timeless Vintage designs, time-tested Wilkinson hardware and hand-picked tonewoods that have made these guitars themselves, Vintage classics.
Aside from the attention to the fine details of the superb aesthetics, each guitar undergoes a full ProShop® setup, fret level, crown and polish, fingerboard dress and comfort treatment, truss rod adjustment and set, action height, radius, intonation and pickup height adjustment and nut slot regulation and comes with a Vintage® branded luxury gig bag, exclusive ProShop leather strap, pick tin, and tee-shirt, data sheet, and Individually numbered and signed ProShop® certificate of authenticity.

American alder is the perfect tonewood choice for the contoured body, specifically chosen for its resonance, sustain, tone, looking stunning with a 3-tone Sunset Sunburst finish, that’s been subtlety pre worn, by hand in all the right places, in the time honoured way, by the Vintage Pro Shop team.

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.
