Vintage V100MR Icon, Distressed Lemon Drop

Details
The Vintage V100MR Icon in Distressed Lemon Drop pays tribute to a legendary blues guitarist, with its reverse-mounted neck humbucker, vintage-inspired tones, and retro look. Despite its highly accessible price-point, the Vintage V100MR features quality tonewoods, stable and reliable Wilkinson hardware, and a smooth playability for discerning players. The V100MR features a warm and resonant mahogany body with a mahogany set-in neck for long sustain. A true maple cap provides additional bright overtones and top-end, while the maple veneer gives a classy aesthetic to help you stand out on stage. The tonewoods are enhanced by Wilkinson WVVZ humbuckers which provide vintage-style nuance; perfect for classic rock and blues. The reverse-mounted neck pickup lets you achieve an 'out of phase' middle-position tone which pays tribute to an iconic guitarist from blues guitar history. The Tune-o-matic tailpiece is also a Wilkinson design, as are the tuning machineheads, so you'll be guaranteed stable tuning. A graphite nut also assists with the tuning stability, while the 3-way pickup selector and dual volume/tone arrangement provides access to a wide range of sounds. The neck features a modern 12''-radius fingerboard and 22 medium frets, providing easy string bends and great balance across the strings, while the contoured heel enhances the top-fret access to enable easy high-range soloing. With its iconic single-cutaway design, twin humbucking pickups, distressed finish, and smooth playability, the V100MR is perfect for players looking to create a classic blues tone on stage or in the studio; it is ideal for students and professionals alike.

Quality Tonewoods

Despite the Vintage V100MR's accessible price, the guitar is constructed with a high-quality mahogany body, maple cap, mahogany neck, and a rosewood fingerboard. This tonewood combination lends the V100MR a classic tonality with excellent warmth, resonance and sustain - perfect for blues, classic rock, and more. The maple cap extends the guitar's top-end frequency response, while the flamed maple veneer provides a classy aesthetic. The distressed finish gives you an instant vintage-cool look, reminiscent of a classic guitar that has survived a lifetime with a musician.

Smooth Playability

The V100MR'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 V100MR 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 Deluxe WJ01 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.

The mis-matched volume and tone controls are reminiscent of a vintage guitar that has had its parts lost and replaced, helping to enhance the classic guitar aesthetic.

Wilkinson Humbucking Pickups

The V100MR is loaded with Wilkinson WVVZ humbuckers which provide a vintage-inspired tone that is perfect for the nuances of blues and classic rock. The neck pickup is reverse-mounted in the same way that one iconic blues guitarist has his guitar set up; this gives you an out-of-phase middle-position pickup selection to create a completely unique tone. The WVVZ humbuckers enhance the warmth and resonance of the mahogany/maple body, giving you a fat tone with great sustain.

Reviews

Guitar Tricks Insider Magazine

" At last one of the most underrated blues guitarists of all time is getting some respect. Thanks to Vintage guitars, a long overdue tribute to Peter Green’s guitar wizardry has finally manifested. V100 is one of the most diverse… guitars on the market today and when it comes to tribute guitars, this is the real deal. With a smoking hot basement price that’ll have envious Peter Green fans drooling until they get their hands on this prize, I’m sure the music stores won’t be able to keep them in stock. "
