The Hailers

“I can’t praise my new Vintage Icon bass enough. It truly is my favorite bass to play. It has everything that I’ve been looking for in a bass, i.e., the feel, the weight, the rosewood fingerboard and most importantly, the sound! The p-bass pickups are great and far superior to any I have used in the past. Thanks to all of you, I am one happy camper.”

Louie and the Rockets; The Unholy Rollers

“I’ve been waiting a long time for a guitar like the Vintage V100 to come along.”

Midge Ure

Ultravox

“The V100MU is everything I want in a guitar. The variety of tones from the Wilkinson W90SK pickups combined with the vari-coil enabling me to go from single coil to quasi double coil whilst the roller bridge and ‘classic’ vibrola is something I’ve never seen before on a contoured topped guitar. It really is a thing of beauty not just to look at but to play.”

Mika Nuutinen

KAATO

“The crunchy tone and how easy it was to play was exactly what I was looking for in a good Rock n Roll bass.  I’d recommend Vintage to anyone looking for a quality guitar with a reasonable price tag..”

Guitar player

Richard Lloyd

Television; Matthew Sweet; Rocket From the Tombs

“The variety of tones available through this guitar is astonishing. To be able to go from a humbucker tone to a single coil sound in a single guitar built as well as this one has been is a revelation. I can’t praise the guitar highly enough. The Vintage has so many tones and varieties of sound from snarling to mellow that I hardly know what to do with it. It’s made quite a mark on me.”

Hailers

Rob Mills

The Hailers

The Greg Allman Band; Scott Sharrard and the Brickyard Band

“The V62 is one of the best T-style guitars I’ve ever played. These guys just get it, turning the clock back to the best of the 1950’s American build quality and at a fair price, an unbeatable combo. This guitar is a true gift to every working musician out there, bravo!”
