It's true to say that the best guitars are built from the inside out, and Vintage enjoys a well-earned reputation for building great guitars. Now, the superb line-up of exciting Vintage electric guitars just got even better.
Over recent years, many guitar enthusiasts have admired the virtuosic electric guitar style of Thomas Blug, one of Europe's 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 Fender Stratocaster.
As a player who has been the inspiration to thousands of players, Thomas chose Trev Wilkinson, and UK guitar brand Vintage, to prove the point that it is possible to create in a signature guitar an instrument which faithfully recreates the unique attributes of his beloved white '61.
With its battle-scarred body, custom electronics and personalised switching all added to the already exceptionally well-specc'd Vintage ReIssued Series V6 guitar, players looking for an edge with this iconic design, and who also perhaps aspire to emulate Thomas' spine- tingling sound, can now buy exactly the same instrument which he uses in his day-to-day work.
"Outstanding", comments Thomas on his Vintage V6 Signature Model, which we've all come to refer to as the "ElastaPlastaBlugaCasta" in reference to the first ever sample the Vintage team showed me 4 years ago, with the brand name covered by a Band-Aid. "To achieve all this, in an instrument which literally anyone can afford, even a first time buyer, is an unbelievable achievement. Working closely with Trev Wilkinson to translate every subtle part of my guitar has been a labour of love."
"Working with the Vintage team has proven that there are still people in the commercial side of our business who are total 'guitar heads' and who really do care about producing honest instruments without compromise," continues Thomas. "Getting the best guitars into players' hands without emptying their wallets and bank accounts! Quite amazing."
