NAMM 2018: Vintage Guitars

The UK’s very own JHS Vintage Guitars brand will be putting on a strong showing at Winter NAMM with its Reissued Series take centre stage.

The V100 ‘OC’ Open Cover Series gains the V100TBK, a Thru-Black version. Featuring a solid mahogany body and set in mahogany neck and a flamed maple top, pickups are a pair of Wilkinson open coils. Also joining the V100 series is the V100THB with a flamed maple honeyburst top and the V100TWRwith a Flamed Maple Thru Wine Red top.

There are also now three new colours for the V6 models:  Candy Apple Blue(V6CAB) Natural Ash with maple fingerboard (V6MNAT) and Vintage White (V6VW). Additionally, the Gloss BlackV6HMBBoffers a maple board with a bridge doublecoil pickup.

Joining the VS6 series is the new VS6M. In a Dark Mahogany finish, the VS6M has an easy upper fret access thanks to its heel design and cutaway, and a pair of Wilkinson double coil pickups. Meanwhile, the V6M24 will now be available in Gloss Black (V6M24BK) and Purple (V6M24PL).

New to the Vintage range, the V75 will sit alongside its sister guitars the V52 and V62 models. With an American alder body, and one piece maple neck and fingerboard, the V75 also features a Wilkinson WTB bridge. Due to its unique design, the three brass saddles and steel plate provide the traditional tonal response this guitar type is famed for, whilst the chamfer points for each string allow the player to accurately intonate the guitar. A pair of matched Wilkinson pickups complete the picture. The V75 will be available in Gloss Black (V75BK) and Laguna Blue (V75LB).

Bass looks like being a strong suit for Vintage this year and the range of colours on offer has been expanded with the V4 now to be available in Bayview Blue (V4BBL) and Firenza Red with one-piece maple neck and fingerboard (V4MFR). There are three new finishes on the VJ74 too.

Finally, brand new to the Vintage line up, the VJ75 offers a five-string option to the VJ74 with the same spec and hardware. Available in three finishes, Natural Ash (VJ75NAT), Gloss Black (VJ75BK) and Sunset Sunburst (VJ75SSB).
