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.
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.
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.
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.
