Whilst the Vintage ProShop Raw Knuckle Pink experience starts with the visuals, this gorgeous twin cutaway guitar, which started life as a V6M24BK and regarded as a Vintage classic in itself, has been through the hands of the UK’s Vintage ProShop Team and is now at the forefront of the metal guitar world.
