Vintage Guitars V6M24VG Vintura Green 24 Fret Guitar
Blemish: A few spots where the paint has run and a small pre paint chip in the wood at the neck pocket.
With an American alder body perfectly matched to a bolt-on maple neck and fingerboard, its 24 medium jumbo fretboard allows the player to comfortably access those high notes thanks to its contoured low-profile neck joint.
Like all Vintage electrics, it comes as standard with Trev Wilkinson designed hardware and pickup. The VS50IIK Vibrato system can take some serious abuse and yet still return to pitch time after time, thanks to the added inclusion of Wilkinson WJ07LH E-Z-Lok machine heads. Meanwhile, the Wilkinson WHHB double-coil pickups provide tight bottom end and crisp highs, perfect for a variety of genres.

A Brief History of VINTAGE Guitars
Back in the mid-60s, a desire for independence in business led to John Skewes forming a small musical instrument agency and wholesale business based at his home near Leeds, England. Over time, his new business steadily began to take off, and soon included throughput of some self-branded lines of musical merchandise. That effective early decision to carry self-branded merchandise continues to this day, with their signature Vintage acoustic and electric guitars and basses which were first produced and sold in 1985. Today, Skewes is the largest family-owned independent musical merchandise distributor in the U.K. and the Vintage family includes Fret King electric guitars, Pilgrim Banjo and Mandolins, Laka Ukuleles, Encore electric and acoustic guitars, and Kinsman cases.
About the legendary designer, Trev Wilkinson
The central idea behind Vintage is to offer accessibly priced, vintage-looking guitars with great finishes, quality parts, and features that are typically found on guitars costing upward of a thousand dollars. So, to design an industry-leading line of professional but affordable guitars, Trev Wilkinson joined forces with JHS over a decade ago. These instruments now include class-leading Wilkinson-designed hardware.
Certain features make Vintage guitars a â€œbigger bang for the buck. Subtle changes to traditional guitar designs have been made so they perform much better. For instance, on the spring block, the holes are staggered in a way that allows the strings to leave the block and pass over the saddles at a consistent angle that helps keep those strings in tune. Trev also developed tuning keys called EZ-LOK that work like a locking tuner, but actually don't require any mechanical manufacturing. There's nothing to unwind when you're slacking the strings using the vibrato, and they always come back to pitch. The same goes for our pickups. Trev doesn't have a high-dollar pickup range to protect, so he can produce pickups that will sound as good as any company can wind anywhere in the world. Trev has been described as Britain's one-man think tank. Asserting that there's always more work to be done when it comes to improving guitar playability! We're here to attest to the fact that's just who Trev is.
