The Vintage V100BLK is a solid Mahogany bodied electric guitar, based on the classic LP design, with quality attributes including a set Mahogany neck, dual covered Chrome humbuckers and separate volume and tone controls for each. It has seriously good looks and a well-detailed finish including cream body and neck binding.
The most notable design feature of the V100BLK is that the Mahogany neck is set into the body (as opposed to a bolt on neck), making it a very genuine instrument to hear and play. The combination of this neck joint and the Mahogany body has long been used for top quality electric guitars that tend to fetch quite a price! From a distance the V100 would be indistinguishable from others worth 5 times as much! Even with a closer inspection you'd have to be nit picking to put it down.
This Gloss Black version is also complemented with Chrome hardware, having a solid coloured finish.
The V100BLK is equipped with Wilkinson hardware including the deluxe tuners and dual covered humbuckers. In combination with the separate volume and tone controls there is a powerful sound to be harnessed and a lot of scope for tone shaping.
Both rhythm and treble humbuckers are powerful and successfully deliver a thick tone. Used together they have a full-bodied sound that works great with clean and distorted amp settings alike. Separately the treble humbucker will cut through with precision and there's enough bluesy colour to the neck pickup to keep those solos sounding full of life.
Although the V100 obviously gets its inspiration from a Les Paul, it does a great job and delivers all of the style and playability that makes good guitars so much fun to play. If you've got your eye on this style of instrument then the V100 beats the competition in the way of price, build, components and style.
