Vintage V100 Gold Top

13.09.2016
Received the guitar in good time and well packed from Thomann. Out of the packaging the guitar virtually played in tune albeit a semitone down (makes sense for shipping).

Looks and quality.

The guitar appeared to be a one piece body but on much closer inspection is actually a very well done book matched two piece. The neck is well made from mahogany with centre strip over the truss rod. ( no scarf or heal joints ) The gold paint finish is nice and very even although it does encroach onto the mahogany neck on the treble side of the neck join and the binding on the bass side. There is also a small amout of sparkle from the gold on one area of the neck, not gold paint, just the sparkle.

The tuners ( Chinese green, which I will change purely out of personal preference ) seem so far to hold tuning well and the neck setup is pretty good and ideal for me as far as relief, action and fret level. A couple of the frets have sharp ends on the treble side but not drastically so and easy enough to cure. The bass side neck binding is a bit chewed just before it comes to the neck pickup. Like the other things mentioned, cosmetic and not a deal breaker.

Playability

Acoustcally, the guitar is warm and has loads of sustain as you would expect. The guitar is a typical heavy chunk of wood as you would also expect, weighing in at 4.6Kg, not for the everyone but if you want the tone and feel without paying boutique prices, you need to live with it. Plugged in it is a real eye opener as the stacked P90 style pickups really deliver the goods and stand up well against a Les Paul Standard with boutique PAF style pickups fitted. I wish Vintage would fit their varicoil control to this model or coil splits on the pots as it would really show just how good this guitar is. I have been looking for a source for their varicoil control option with no luck so, might fit coil split pots. I can't wait to hear the split coil addition to this guitar's arsenal.

Overall, I have dropped a star rating from the quality because of the various cosmetic flaws but only because the review pages don't allow you to aportion parts of a star. If so, at this price point, I would have awarded four and three quarter stars not four. My comment on the splitting of the coils cannot take away from the features star award as I knew in advance that the pickups were wired as humbuckers, so an overall total of 5 stars for a smile inducing instrument! Thanks again to Thomann.

Difficult ... all right

Finally a gold top with P90ern. No hollow chambers turning the sound, but traditionally made of solid wood. The strings are heavy, but the sound is just great. Pearly singel coils, fat body, setup was great from the beginning. Even the strings are fine. Even if I prefer light guitars, in this case, sustain and pressure, the vintage remains with me.
