Time to review the latest guitar to grace the LeftyFretz guitar rack – the Vintage V100 Icon Lemon Drop. I’ve had this guitar for exactly one month now so I have had plenty of time to get suitably acquainted with it.
For those who have never heard of them, Vintage is a UK brand which is rapidly gaining respect within the guitar playing community. Vintage worked with acknowledged guitar industry guru Trevor Wilkinson to produce their current range and this really comes across in the quality of the instruments.
The guitar was purchased from Reidy’s online store for the bargain price of £265 ($400ish) including next day shipping so it’s really verging into beginner guitar money. You’ll also be glad to learn that Vintage does not charge extra for their left handed guitars.
I’ll give you a quick sum up of the main features, but head over to the Vintage website for the complete low-down.

- Flame Maple Top

The reverse-fitted neck humbucker and out of phase centre position wiring creates one of the most recognisable guitar sounds of the genre – real “Black Magic”. The guitar is also extensively reliced to give it that authentic ‘used’ look which so many players are lusting after these days.
