Vintage guitars used by Nashville stars
Electric guitars manufactured by Vintage are popular with a number of notable Nashville musicians.
Among the groups that hail from the city that use the instruments are The Don Kelley Band, with Kelley himself playing a Vintage V100MRPGM Lemon Drop model, reports MI-Pro.
Both bassist Dave Roe and guitarist JD Simo also perform with Vintage models when working with the rest of the group.
Other acts to make use of the company's instruments include Matt Lee, who currently plays in the Travis Mann band, and Michael Spriggs.
The latter musician spent a number of years as the lead guitarist for Eddie Rabbitt, playing on his first four albums and earning the 1979 Naras Super Picker Award for his work.
According to Vintage, the company has built itself a well-earned reputation for manufacturing "great guitars".
A statement from the firm explained it has recently been working with industry expert Trevor Wilkinson on a host of new designs that have helped it to further improve its range of products.
It was added that it believes its musical instruments are "great looking, great sounding, great to play - and all at unbelievably competitive prices".
