Following on from years of success with its battered, distressed Lemon Drop ICON model, Vintage has released the V100PGM Reissued Lemon Drop, which depicts the guitar as it might have been, fresh and new off the shelf in the guitar store!

Shiny and new in a stunning Hi-Gloss Tobacco Burst finish, the V100PGM has all the features of its beaten-up older brother – like Wilkinson hardware, a mahogany body with maple cap and flame maple veneer, and a set mahogany neck with rosewood 'board – but it also showcases an ingenious new Trev Wilkinson improvement. Upper fret access has always been an issue on singlecut guitars, so Trev's equipped the V100PGM and ALL V100’s with a graceful descending bass-side shoulder and an ingeniously designed offset heel which provides improved access to the upper frets and opens up your playing.

Sounds simple, and it is – but it looks great stands out as different from the crowd, and gives you easy access to the dusty end of the 'board'.

On the bass front, the all-new VJ74MRBK ICON bass features a distinctive black distressed body, with no scratchplate, and a maple neck and maple finger-board with chunky black block inlays. Set off with Wilkinson hardware, including two of his full toned, crisp and clear bass pickups, it's hugely versatile rhythm machine.


Meanwhile, the Reissued VJ74MSSB and ash-bodied VJ74NAT will give players all of the the VJ74MRBK's wonderful tonal variations and awesome playability, but in a beautifully glossy Sunset Sunburst or Natural Ash finish respectively.
