View Full Description
Despite the Vintage V100AFD's accessible price, the guitar is constructed with a high-quality mahogany body, maple cap, mahogany neck, and a lignum rosa fingerboard. This tonewood combination lends the V100AFD a classic tonality with excellent warmth, resonance and sustain - perfect for blues, rock, and more. The maple cap extends the guitar's top-end frequency response, while the flamed maple veneer provides a classy aesthetic - reminiscent of far more expensive guitars.
The V100AFD's neck features a modern 12'' fingerboard radius which provides excellent balance across the strings, along with the ability to set up a low string action with no risk of the strings "choking" when you play string bends. The neck sits easily in the left hand, while the specially-contoured neck joint and single cutaway assists with top-fret access for high range solos. This playability gives you the smooth feel of a more modern instrument with the looks and sounds of a classic rock guitar - perfect for both rhythm and lead work.
Trev Wilkinson Hardware
Like all Vintage guitars, the V100AFD features Trev Wilkinson-designed hardware, built on years of industry experience. The tune-o-matic bridge provides a stable platform for your strings to sit, along with optimum string vibration transfer to the body.
The bridge is complemented with Wilkinson WJ44 tuners, providing a smooth action for quick and stable tuning. A graphite nut assists with tuning by providing a friction-free platform for the strings to pass over when bending strings and tuning.
Should your performances get a little more active, the V100AFD is fitted with strap locks so you can be sure that your guitar will remain locked in place - no matter how wild your stage antics are.
Wilkinson Humbucking Pickups
The V100AFD is loaded with Wilkinson WVHZ humbuckers which provide a strong humbucking tone with excellent definition, nuance, and dynamic range, courtesy of their high-gain output. This style of pickup is perfect for modern blues and rock players who require a range of sounds from chunky rhythms to saturated leads. The WVHZ humbuckers enhance the warmth and resonance of the mahogany/maple body, giving you a fat tone with great sustain.
Guitar Interactive Magazine loved their test guitar: "This is the best value for money instrument iGuitar has yet seen. It's simply stunning."
"I have to say that this guitar really surprised me and that I was pretty blown away that an instrument in this price bracket could look so stunning, feel so comfortable, and sound so authentic. If I didn't know any better, if [sic] were to see and hear the guitar without a price ticket hanging from a tuner, I would honestly think it would cost four figures."
