The original VVB4SB Vintage ReIssued Violin Bass, has been through the Vintage ProShop for upgrades and slight aging effect to emerge as the handsome VVB4 ProShop Unique.
With a slight thumb-rest abrasion and subtle wear and tear on the body edges, all the vintage emotions of this popular bass from the 1960’s is reflected within the body, neck and hardware. The complete guitar including vintage style volume and tone controls, control plate, mini slide switches, scratch plate and tuner buttons, have all been given a fine spray of yellow lacquer to enhance the aged appearance.
A pair of balanced Wilkinson WDB pickups further augment the unmistakable, deep penetrating violin bass sonics while the super slim, sleek neck offers superb and effortless playability. With its violin shaped, flamed maple hollow body and spruce top, the VVB4 ProShop Unique ~ Antique Sunburst mirrors one of the most recognised bass guitars in the history of pop music……. another hand created one off, ultra realistic, well loved, well played powerhouse electric bass guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.

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!
