Revamping their classic 'western' guitar model across both acoustic and electro-acoustic ranges, with newly-designed construction and bracing patterns to give the bright, lively responsive sounds of much more expensive instruments, Vintage® are pleased to announce the release of the V501 and VEC501 Dreadnoughts. 

Vintage V501 Acoustic Dreadnoughts - Boasting solid sitka spruce tops complemented by a mahogany back and sides for a full, rich, sound matched to easy-to-play mahogany necks with maple bound rosewood fingerboards, faithfully recreating that classic western guitar style, with authentic, crisp, tonal properties and superb projection. 

The V501's also benefit from the addition of a rosewood bridge with a Graph Tech NuBone saddle, and die-cast chrome machine heads for perfect intonation and accurate, solid tuning. Available in three satin finishes, Natural, Tobacco Sunburst, and Burgundy Burst, with an elegant herringbone/abalone sound hole rosette, the range is completed by an ever- popular solid mahogany top model (V501MH), in satin Mahogany finish. 

Vintage VEC501 Electro-Acoustic Cutaway Dreadnoughts - Utilising the same tone woods and classic build as their acoustic counterparts, the VEC501 electro-acoustic models have a graceful lower bout cutaway to help reach the 'dusty end' of the fretboard and come loaded with a top-quality Fishman Sonicore undersaddle pickup and Isys + preamp with standard 1/4'
