Information about Vintage® V100 Midge Ure Reissued Series Electric Guitar in Gold
The V100MU is a well built Les Paul style guitar designed by Trev Wilkinson. This signature model has a warm Gold finish and chrome hardware.
In terms of looks and attitude, few guitars can match the out and out appeal of the Vintage V100. Offering an extraordinarily high level of specification, the build quality and constructional detail of the Vintage V100 includes a solid mahogany body and neck mated in true set neck fashion for maximum tone-enhancing rigidity. An accurately-carved gently arched body top additionally adds to the V100s distinctive look. The mahogany and maple tonewoods are the ideal recipe for the kind of sounds that this style of guitar is renowned for smokey, sultry, sweet-toned bluesy licks with a warm jazzy feel from the neck pickup help soothe the soul with an emotional calm. Charging to the other extreme with a flick of the 3-way selector switch allows the back pickup to rage and rampage through high gain amplification like no other.
"The V100MU is everything I want in a guitar. The variety of tones from the Wilkinson W90SK pickups combined with the vari-coil enabling me to go from single coil to quasi double coil whilst the roller bridge and 'classic' vibrola is something I've never seen before on a contoured topped guitar. It really is a thing of beauty not just to look at but to play."
A multi-million selling artist who has been part of the rock establishment for more than thirty years, Midge Ure knows a thing or two about guitars and tone and has brought all his favourite features together to create the Vintage V100MU.
It's iconic styled mahogany body comes with some modern twists such as the ingeniously designed drop shoulder and offset heel to provide improved access to the upper fretboard and opens up your playing.
The twin Wilkinson WP90SK pickups are stacked double coils for a slightly hotter output, which can then be gradually backed off to a standard single coil pickups via the 'Vari-coil' located with the twin master volumes and tone controls.
The Wilkinson designed GBR roller bridge is complemented perfectly by the old-school vibrola system and Wilkinson E-Z Lok machine heads, eliminating a lot of the usual vibrato tuning issues for incredible return-to-zero performance every time.
All this combined with the classic gold finish, ivory effect pickup covers, three way switch and scratch plate means the V100MU not only looks great, sounds great and plays great as well.
