Say 'hi' to the stunning Vintage VSA555 Semi Acoustic Guitar in a cool and vintage gloss Ebony finish. This guitar is lovely, not only does it look fantastic but it has a marvellous sound that faithfully recreates some of the most expensive versions. It plays well too, and it's very light thanks to it being hollow. A large, woody, resonant tone dominates your ears and it sounds perfect for Blues, Rock, Jazz or anything you want to play on it.

With an all Maple body the sound is mellow, smooth and creamy. A stunning tone. As this guitar is nice and light it's great for any players of ages 11 upwards. If you're into the semi acoustic guitar style and have a budget then this is a fantastic choice.

The neck is also Maple and is finished in gloss black. It's nice size neck, nice and easy to play. The fingerboard is Rosewood and hold 22 frets that are marked by stunning pearl / abalone block inlays. Playing this guitar is a joy.

The electronics are brilliant, it sounds extremely convincing and if you close your eyes no one could say this guitar only costs just over £300, they'd think it was much more! Great pickups by Wilkinson, they deliver a thick, creamy tone that's perfect for any playing scenario!

The hardware, again, is all quality Wilkinson parts and it really is built to last. You just cannot fault this instrument. If you need a semi acoustic guitar for a fantastic, and frankly, cheap price then this is your match!
