Vintage V100MR Icon, Worn Finish, Distressed Lemon Drop
The reverse-fitted neck humbucker and out of phase centre position wiring created one of the most recognisable guitar sounds of the genre – real “Black Magic”. Differential bell type control knobs and sealed gear replacement tuners all add to the mojo.... Still got the blues?
Trev's V100 “Lemon Drop” is a real tribute – "When I was young and in a band, we supported the original Fleetwood Mac to play at a gig we'd organised. Fleetwood Mac let us use their PA, and Peter Green even let me use his amp! He wouldn’t let me use his guitar but he was always my favourite guitarist....”
Nothing gives off that unique, so-cool vibe like a guitar that’s obviously seen some serious use. Like a battle-scarred warrior that always gives its best, the instrument’s character shines through the worn finish, saying 'this guitar has paid its dues’. Its sound has the heart and soul of a thousand gigs in it and you can feel it when you play it. It feels special to hold, and special to play. But how many people can afford the vintage instrument of their dreams? That special instrument which displays a unique level of wear from decades of playing – at home, numerous rehearsal sessions, smoky pubs to working mens’ clubs, gigs and tours at home and abroad? Or how many guitarists can wait 20 years before their own guitar starts to show that kind of time-related character? Now you don’t have to wait! You don’t even have to re-mortgage the house to make the payment. Renowned guitar specialists Vintage®, in conjunction with acknowledged guitar guru, Trev Wilkinson, have a new specially-aged electric guitar range that ticks all the boxes – the Vintage ICON™ Series! These fantastic guitars, fully equipped with equally aged Wilkinson tuners, hardware and pickups look like they've been played for decades with all the marks, wear and tear to prove it. They've been through the mill but they’re cool and ready for the next gig.
