The re-sprayed black body, matching black single-ply scratchplate and contrasting aged cream controls and pickup covers formulate a visually striking guitar.
Both the body and scratchplate, have been refinished with a black satin acrylic lacquer with subtle aging for that ‘well loved, well played’ natural vintage patina.
The neck itself is a thing of beauty, sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look, along with the headstock is given a cellulose amber coating.
The vintage charm is enhanced further with pickup covers and controls also receiving subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture, whilst the pickups for the Vintage V6 ProShop Unique Boulevard Black are upgraded to the Wilkinson WVS60 series single coils.
Hardware also receives the magic touch from the Vintage design team with gentle yet effective wear and the shortened vibrato arm is surely, one of the many appealing highlights of this stunning guitar
