Vintage Icon Series V100MRTSB Distressed Tobacco Sunburst
The Vintage V100MR Icon in Distressed Tobacco Sunburst is built for rock and blues with its classic design and vintage-inspired tones. 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 maple veneer and distressed finish gives a classy, vintage-cool look. The tonewoods are enhanced by Wilkinson MWVC humbuckers which provide vintage-style nuance; perfect for classic rock and blues. 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.
Despite the Vintage V100MR's accessible price, the guitar is constructed with a high-quality mahogany body, 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. A maple veneer top gives a wonderful classic aesthetic, while the distressed finish gives you an instant vintage-cool look, reminiscent of a guitar that has survived a full lifetime with a musician and is ready to keep on rocking.
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 bend them. 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 WJ44 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 V100MR is loaded with Wilkinson MWVC humbuckers which provide a vintage-inspired tone that is perfect for the nuances of blues and classic rock. The MWVC humbuckers enhance the warmth and resonance of the mahogany/maple body, giving you a fat tone with great sustain.
