A stalwart of the independent rock scene, the offset electric has established itself as the quintessential, iconic alternative guitar. Angular and chaotic, just like the sounds it contains, the brand new Vintage V65VVW is the perfect instrument for those players who operate on the fringes of guitar society; the six string of choice for the anti-traditionalist.
Combining a pair of soapbar single coil pickups via a three way selector switch, the V65VBK is capable of shifting between jangly cleans and raking highs to drop tuned distorted riffs and pedal-powered walls of sound; what's more, the inclusion of a traditional, long-arm vibrato system allows for hypnotic pitch manipulation and mesmeric glides between chords. For the guitarist who flies in the face of convention, the Vintage V65VVW is here to help you make beautiful noise.
Whether you're searching for your first guitar or your last, every member of the Vintage ReIssued Series is a keeper. Play on.
Maple body with maple top provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort. The guitar also features Vintage's unique offset heel to improve upper fret access and playability.
Vintage offset vibrato provides pitch manipulation, superb tuning stability and adjustable intonation for each string.
Two Wilkinson Soapbar single coil pickups provide fat and articulate cleans and cutting, punchy overdriven tones.
Independent master Volume and Tone pots with three position pickup selector switch.
Wilkinson WJ44 machine heads provide simple, effective action for superb tuning stability.
One piece Mahogany with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile for instant comfort, speed, accuracy and great feel.
Lignum Rosa™ for outstanding tonal transfer, responsiveness and durability with a traditional 10” radius for superb playability and feel.
22 Medium Jumbo profile frets add to comfort, accuracy and overall positive feel of the Vintage V65VVW.
43mm Graphtech NuBone for smooth and friction-free string bending and tuning.

Wow - can it really be 25 years since I began selling Vintage guitars?
I have a strong feeling this brand was available when I first opened my business and it has remained my "go to" recommendation for affordable & extreme value instruments ever since.
The range over the years has expanded massively to cater for most genres and it has continued to improve in quality as well as range available.
Sadly, my Achilles heel shall we say are the "over expectant" minority (AKA Budget guitar police) who want PERFECTION at the cheapest possible price. Whilst a minority they are quite a militant bunch and tend to take the guitar out the box, run their hands down the frets to find the fret end we didn't manage to find or the 16th fret on the D that isn't as flat as it should be - or the little cosmetic blemish on the reer of the guitar that if you put the guitar to the light and look at it as 23 degrees on a sunny afternoon.... you get the idea....
Look - I am telling you as it is.... Either I NEVER sell guitars at this price - or you accept the INCREDIBLE positives of this brand at this price. The positives are MANY and I love them and you will too if your desire is to enjoy your guitar - not treat it as some kind of study for a physics project.
They contain what I call the building blocks of a great guitar.
Our meticulous quality control and setup service ensures you receive the very best example of the guitar. No stone is left unturned but PLEASE bear in mind this is a "relatively" budget brand and if you have OCD and the first thing you do is inspect every aspect of the guitar with a magnifying glass then I suggest you save up some money and go up to the next level of instrument.
If however you want a guitar that GENUINELY contains all the immense character of the original designs - the sound - the feel (and lets face it one of the brands they are mirroring have APPALLING standards that I would never allow out the door! yet cost 5x the price!) you will be blown away by Vintage.
Rest assured our meticulous quality control and preparation gets you the best. The very best - and a unique added value that NO other shop in the country can match. That I promise you!
Here are few videos I have done over the past couple of years which hopefully demonstrate why I love Vintage guitars so much and are my #1 recommendation for electric guitars under £400
