[NAMM] Vintage Summer Of Love V6MRHDX
Thomas Blug has joined forces with Vintage guitars to produce a new signature model influenced by the man many people think of as the greatest guitarist of all time.
The Vintage Summer Of Love V6MRHDX is a nod to an iconic guitar played by Jimi Hendrix. The newest model in the Vintage ICON range of distressed, or reliced, instruments, the Summer Of Love's body and parts have all been aged to simulate years of onstage use.
The guitar features the same specs as Thomas's '61 and his original Vintage signature, the V6MRTBG – the only differences being the reverse headstock and the hand-applied graphics created by German artist Daniel Hahn.
The V6MRHDX's body is alder, and it features a hard maple, bolt-on neck with a 7 ½” radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 frets. The hardware is genuine Wilkinson, including the three vintage-voiced single coil pickups, with aged ivory covers and Thomas's Bukkaswitch, which is operated by a push/push pot on the back tone control, and provides a hum-cancelling, subtly tone-altering extra dummy coil when needed.
