Vintage V100PGM Lemon Drop
The V100 “Lemon Drop” is a real tribute."
With its reverse-fitted neck humbucker and out of phase center position wiring created one of the most recognizable guitar sounds of the genre – real “Black Magic”. Differential bell type control knobs and sealed gear replacement tuners all add to the mojo.... Still got the blues?
"When I was young and, in a band”, Trev explains,” we supported the original Fleetwood Mac to play at a gig we'd organized. Fleetwood Mac let us use their PA, and Peter Green even let me use his amp! He wouldn't let me use his guitar, but he was always my favorite guitarist....”
The Vintage “Lemon Drop” is a perfect example of Trev ‘s fascination with tone. Whilst working in California, Trev’s development work in the guitar industry led him to a meeting with the father of the humbucking pickup, Seth Lover. Recognizing a kindred enquiring and inventive guitar spirit, Seth Lover imparted to Trev the exact specification of the mythical pickup units he designed, and that same authentic vintage voiced recipe is what Trev uses in the V100’s humbuckers to ensure you can get that elusive iconic tone from the Vintage “Lemon Drop”
For enhanced playability, the Vintage V100 features a unique evolutionary body shape with a graceful descending bass side shoulder and an ingeniously designed offset heel providing improved access to the ‘dusty-end’ of the guitar's upper frets and opening up your playing.
