Information about Vintage® Icon V6 Electric Guitar : THOMAS BLUG Summer of Love
Over recent years, many guitar enthusiasts have admired the virtuosic electric guitar style of Thomas Blug, one of Europes most respected players.
In addition, Thomas work as a product development consultant and product demonstrator for Hughes & Kettner guitar amplification means he is a regular must-see feature at music expos and shows worldwide, alongside his own sought-after CD releases and tuition DVDs, as well as performances with the Thomas Blug Band which includes keyboardist Thijs Van Leer, erstwhile mainstay of Dutch rock legends, Focus.
Thomas has one of the most recognisable guitar sounds in the world, playing with a fluid, melodic and powerful style, and has over the years, become synonymous with his much-loved and instantly recognisable electric guitar, a well-used faded Olympic White 61.
The V6MRHDX's body is alder, and it features a hard maple, bolt-on neck with a 71/?2 radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 frets. All the hardware is genuine Wilkinson, including the three vintage-voiced single coil pickups with aged ivory covers and Thomas's beloved Bukka switch, 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. And it's all wrapped up in the beautiful Vintage Icon package, with the guitar's body and parts all meticulously aged to simulate years of onstage use. Topped off with stunning original artwork, this is a must-have guitar.
I wanted a guitar that looks cool like Hendrix's, but with all the features of my signature Vintage Icon V6 guitar, he says. And it had to play like all the guitars I usually play: pickups in the same position and not a reversed body. True to Thomas' requests, the guitar features the same top quality specs as his treasured '61 and his original Vintage signature, but comes with a reversed headstock and hand-applied graphics created by German artist Daniel Hahn especially for the Summer Of Love.
