Excellent tone and playability

Vintage built an excellent instrument. Guitar is very well made, versatile and has great tone for jazz and blues. If you`re in doubt simply go for it, I was too and was blown away. I had tested many semi/hollow body models within the price range, till this date none compares, 5/5!

Excellent Service

Richards Guitars is the go to place for your next guitar from the staff Jake,Jon and tech Chris office staff and of course Richard himself who advised me to take a look at a YouTube video of a comparison from a well known brand to the VSA500 having done this I bought the guitar its absolutely stunning instrument from ordering to delivery Richards Guitars kept me well informed about the guitar the quality they supply is second to none each guitar sold is inspected to a high standard and if they are not happy it's rejected so that the customer will receive a guitar they don't have to worry about. Set up is amazing no stone unturned when it comes to the tech setting Guitars up they play straight out of the box ,which is packed well for delivery I could go on and on about this shop but deal with them and find out for yourselves just an amazing company to deal with.

My latest Guitar

As always, above and beyond customer service from the team at Richard's Guitars. They kept me fully up-to-date with the progress of my order, which was excellent. The quality control was brilliant and ensured that I ended up with the right guitar. Great service and I shall no doubt be buying from them again in the future.

Great guitar, great service.

This was my first semi hollow guitar and I am very impressed with it. Waited about a week for it , but , boy it was worth the wait. Beautifully set up by Chris, with my choice of strings. Low action, perfect intonation.
Very versatile guitar, fantastic value for money, feels like a much more expensive guitar.
Thanks to Sophie and the rest of the team, very helpful .
I have bought many guitars over last 40 years but this has been one of the best buying experiences I have had.
Very easy, no pressure approach.
Thank you guys !

Another satisfied customer…

Apologies for the delayed review…
I’d been wanting to try a semi-hollow for some time but was not really in position to pay mid- to high-end prices. Shopping around in this lower price bracket the Vintage looked to be a good quality and value for money option and, I have to say, I’m very happy with my purchase – for an instrument at this price point you actually get ‘a lot of guitar’! (Oh, and Richard’s online price was one of the best out there for this model.) The added set-up, courtesy of Richard and tech team, was great – neck, nut and fret ends feel super nice. It played nice straight out of the box.
Due to stockist resupply, completion and delivery was rather drawn out (nothing within Richard’s power, of course, and a global pandemic wouldn’t have helped either!) but communication with the folks at Richards Guitars was good throughout.
Final extra points for secure packing and the smart idea of recycling of old boxes to make packing material for added protection… green thinking!
Positive buying experience and, if I can ever afford an upgrade, I would certainly consider a return visit… hmmmm, those Eastman T486’s look rather nice!
Thanks for the customer care and service to Richard, Teresa, Sally, techs and all.
