Vintage V100 Guitar Paradise Flamed Maple
The Vintage V100AFD Reissued in Flamed Amber is built to rock with its iconic single cutaway design and stand-out looks. Despite its highly accessible price-point, the Vintage V100AFD features quality tonewoods, stable and reliable Wilkinson hardware, and a modern playability for discerning players. The V100AFD features a warm and resonant mahogany body with a mahogany set-in neck for long sustain. A true maple cap provides additional bright overtones and top-end, while the maple veneer gives a classy aesthetic to help you stand out on stage. The tonewoods are enhanced by Wilkinson WVHZ humbuckers which provide a powerful grunt; perfect for 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, and smooth playability, the V100AFD is perfect for players looking to make a raucous tone on stage or in the studio; it is ideal for students and professionals alike.
Despite the Vintage V100AFD'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 V100AFD a classic tonality with excellent warmth, resonance and sustain - perfect for blues, rock, and more. The maple cap extends the guitar's top-end frequency response, while the flamed maple veneer provides a classy aesthetic - reminiscent of far more expensive guitars.
The V100AFD'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 V100AFD 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 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.
Should your performances get a little more active, the V100AFD is fitted with strap locks so you can be sure that your guitar will remain locked in place - no matter how wild your stage antics are.
The V100AFD is loaded with Wilkinson WVHZ humbuckers which provide a strong humbucking tone with excellent definition, nuance, and dynamic range, courtesy of their high-gain output. This style of pickup is perfect for modern blues and rock players who require a range of sounds from chunky rhythms to saturated leads. The WVHZ humbuckers enhance the warmth and resonance of the mahogany/maple body, giving you a fat tone with great sustain.
