Look closely, and you’ll see the 2 tone sunburst of the Vintage ICON Series V6 beneath this beautiful, aged Vintage ProShop V6 Ventura Green over Sunburst
Already a classic Vintage V6 model in itself, this stunning guitar, like all models in the Vintage ProShop Series, now evokes stunning individuality, as a one-off custom guitar that’s been through the hands of the Vintage ProShop team of skilled luthiers.
The original finish has now been over sprayed with a white undercoat, the Ventura green top coat applied, then lacquered, after which, many hours have been spent meticulously hand-sanding to accurately create authentic aging and wear and tear in all the right places.
This striking body finish is complimented with a 3 ply pearloid scratchplate again, with highly affective aging focused around the controls and pickup covers, a process that’s also featured within the hard rock maple neck and headstock, whilst the smooth rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets, lets you reach extra high notes not often associated with this guitar design.
A balanced set of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups, with staggered, chamfered edged pole pieces, deliver for flagship single coil tones with contemporary power, while the centre unit is reverse wound with reverse polarity for hum cancelling duties in switch position 2 and 4.
Time-tested hardware that’s also been through the subtle distressing process, includes Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok machine heads and a Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge which is a masterpiece of detail in itself.
The amiss of the vibrato back plate reveals the classic 3 spring vibrato set up, assuring spring and string tension are equal, whilst the precision cut GraphTech nut also ensures perfect return to pitch, from the shaking of chords or solo notes with a gentle tease or aggressive vibrato attack.
It’s the finest details within the incredibly authentic and expertly applied worn concept that have earned the Vintage ProShop Series guitars, respect from players around the world.
It’s been said many times: Do the Vintage ProShop Series of instruments really sound as cool as they look?…you bet!
