Vintage V6 ProShop Unique - Sunset Sunburst (Reverse Headstock) (SOLD)


 

V6PU3330
Vintage V6 ProShop Unique - Sunset Sunburst (Reverse Headstock)

Description

The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Sunset Sunburst started out as a popular V6SSB. After a painstaking number of hours with the Vintage design team, it now overruns with all the emotional charm and elegance of a ‘well used, well loved guitar’ from the 1950’s…with a twist.

It follows the reversed headstock trend, where players want to be part of this timeless, heritage design, but desire to be a little different. Classic vintage appointments for this era include the 8 hole, single-ply scratchplate with oversize screw heads, while the aged charm is enhanced further where the pickup covers and controls receive subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture.

The body and neck now have a satin matt acrylic lacquer finish, polished out to enhance the accurately applied wear and tear effect. The neck itself is a thing of beauty, sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look and, along with the headstock is given a cellulose amber coating.

The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Sunset Sunburst is another hand-created one-off, ultra-realistic, ‘well loved, well played’ guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.

Vintage ProShop Set-Up includes:

  • Fret-level, crown and polish.
  • Fingerboard dress and comfort treatment.
  • Truss rod adjustment and set.
  • Action height, radius, intonation and pickup height adjustment.
  • Nut slot regulation.
