Vintage V100MRPGM Lemon Drop Icon
VINTAGE V100MRPGM ICON
This guitar is less of a copy, and more of a homage to one of the greatest British guitar players ever to strum a string - Peter Green.
The Vintage V100 Peter Green Icon replicates not only the look of that famous Gibson Les Paul Lemon-drop, but also the unique sound.
Ever wonder how Peter Green created that haunting 'Albatross' sound - or the attack on 'Oh Well' - or the syrupy weep on 'Black Magic Woman? The answer is, because the Lemon Drop wasn't set up correctly. The neck pick-up was fitted upside down, and the guitar was out of phase in the middle setting. Whether by a stroke of creative genius or a happy mistake, the result was one of the truly iconic guitar tones.
The V100 Icon replicates these 'errors' to produce a tone which is so close to Green's, it will make your jaw drop. The guitar has been professionally pre-aged with an astounding attention to detail. Even the unmatched control knobs are included to add some genuine authenticity.
Despite the V100 Icon looking great, the real thrill comes when you play it. It has a wonderful familiarity about it, like a favourite old sweater. Work your way some of your favourite Fleetwood Mac riffs and feel it come to life in your hands. Even at twice the price, this guitar would still be a steal.
