Vintage Embraces the Past with New Vintage Historic Acoustic Series (1)

Vintage Embraces the Past with New Vintage Historic Acoustic Series -

The award-winning Vintage acoustic guitars stable has grown further, with the release of a trio of Vintage Historic Series electro-acoustic.

These three classy instruments may evoke aesthetic times past with their beautiful Vintage Burst satin open pore finishes and their gently curved body shapes, but they feel, play and sound like modern classics.

The range includes a guitar for every type of acoustic player, meaning there is a Vintage Historic Series for you if you gently fingerpick your melodies or if you prefer to strum with friends round a campfire at a festival.

Choose from the VE440VB orchestra model, the drop-shoulder dreadnought VE660VB, or the elegant VE880VB parlour.

All feature solid spruce tops with mahogany backs and sides, ivory white binding, mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard, a Nubone nut and saddle, and premium quality, USA-made Fishman Sonicore pickups and Acoustic Matrix VT soundhole-mounted preamps (with volume and tone controls) for when you need to plug in.

The Vintage Historic Series guitars are available now, all priced at an incredibly reasonable £299 UK RRP, so if you want to inject some sophistication into your acoustic playing, give them a try when you're next at your local music store.
