Vintage VSA500-12 ProShop Unique ~ Aged Red over Sunburst

Description

The Vintage 12 string VSA500 semi-acoustic has been a firm favourite with singer songwriters, semi professional and professional guitarists and studios session musicians for many years.


Now, blessed with the magic touch of the highly skilled Vintage ProShop team, the VSA500-12 has been professionally aged by hand the only way these master craftsmen know how.

The original Sunburst finish on the body, neck and headstock has been painstakingly sanded back to provide a key for this stunning red cellulose lacquer finish. Then, taken back to reveal the original finish in friction-worn areas for a stunning visual effect of a guitar that’s played just about every festival and pub gig for decades.

All hardware, including Wilkinson machine heads and ivory buttons, Wilkinson Vintage WOCHB Double coil pickup covers and Wilkinson Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece have been expertly ‘freeze aged’ to again, receive subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture.

Aside from the stunning looks and effortless playability, the Vintage VSA500PU0001 electro-acoustic coupled with an airy woodiness from the hollow, maple body construction, produces all the classic 12 string jangle and crystal clear chime in abundance, along with power, warmth and the hum-cancelling properties from the popular Wilkinson® WOCHB pickups.

With meticulous attention paid to the fine details of the superb aesthetics, the Vintage VSA500PU0001 electro-acoustic ProShop comes with a Vintage ProShop Set-Up:

  • 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.
