First off, the guitar is great, perfect in every respect, got it as a present for my daughter.
There was one problem, the guitar I received was not the one pictured, it had no Lemon Drop Truss Rod Cover and the Relicing was not as random as the new version. I contacted Vintage direct, who informed me, I got an older stock guitar, the guitar as since been Improved on according to Vintage.
I contacted Thomann, and all I got was a Customer Service Rep telling me to "calm down" ....Calm down? Thomann just recently put up the prices on these guitars, a price hike on stock that has been sitting in their Warehouse for years? I am sick at the level of customer service. All I asked for was to be sent the Leomon Drop Truss rod cover, my daughter is a big Peter Green fan and was really upset by this whole string of events.
I spend a lot of money with Thomann, and their Customer Service Staff treated me like a Dog, and spoke to me like a Dog.
Thomann - Horrible Service. Vintage - These guys make good guitars.
The guitar I received has been slightly updated for 2014 from the pictures on the Thomann website. The guitar now has an offset heel to allow improved access to the upper frets. It also has 'Lemon Drop' written on the truss rod cover. The guitar, I believe, is based on an old Peter Green LP model. I love the attention to detail Vintage has gone to, such as the drilled holes where the old tuners were supposed to be fitted to the headstock and where the scratchplate has been removed. The guitar is also fitted with mismatched control knobs. My guitar is a little more 'orange' than the pictures suggest and the cosmetic ageing is definitely very subtle. However the guitar plays and sounds great. Best of all - the price; fantastic value for money. Get one!
Also excellent service from Thomann. I ordered the on Sunday night (from Germany) and received it in the UK on Wednesday.
