    Image result for vintage v 72


    I've never even seen one let alone play one ,but I'm liking it. Not quite sure about the Strat headstock but it's not a deal breaker either

    Try it, if you can find one.

    I believe they are made in China, or Vietnam. UK imported by

        There ya go.
        If you have the ability to do so, I would. Then you got a lifetime keeper with something you made.

          Very tasty looking. And I thought my GAS was in remission. Seems Thai shop I frequent now and then has them on their list (don't know if actually in stock). If you find and get one, we want a full report, please.
          [Weloveshopping.com] Vintage V72FTB Vintage Reissued V72 With a wonderful blend of ‘old’ and ‘new era’ the Vintage V72FTB features a neck mounted Wilkinson WDG mini double coil pickup, which produces a focussed broad spectrum tone, allied to the classic voice of a Wilkinson Alnico V WVTB housed in a Wilkinson WTB bridge, with its cold rolled steel ‘ashtray’ base and intonated brass saddles.

            No more guitar GAS for me. I bought 4 solid-body electric guitars in 2017.
            3 Gibsons & 1 Fender. (1 was for a son.)

            So I'm pretty-well set now.

              why is it, that my guitar G.A.S. is always above $900 or way beyond? why is there never something in the $500 or below range?
              and why do my actual needs (realistic view of my self how much play time the potential purchase would get), not justifiing the high price nor the low price purchase?

                anything left handed? not in colors of black, white or sunburst? anything better what i already own?

                being left handed is also some form of controlling you g.a.s.

                things i have a little g.a.s. for:
                a 12string
                some of the eastwood airline guitars, but the ones above $900 and not the cheaper models *shrugs*
                would love if freeman could make me an accoustic guitar

                but none if it is justifiable, as none would get much play time and use and i will not sell any of what i own, as it is hard to find a buyer, specially if you want a fair price...

                only a danelectro dc59 would fit, but it is already so lond on my g.a.s. list, that maybe it is really not the droid i'm looking for

                I'd only build you an acoustic if I could deliver it in person.

                ^problem is, i don't really need another accoustic, though i do not have a 12string.

                i'd love to have a martin d41 with lots of bling but not as much as a d45-bling, but $5k for a guitar is crazy

                but my two accoustics that i have are most of the time in their stands and not used, i don't need another one standing around in a stand or in a case

                Intriguing . I may take early retirement this year so it's a possibility.

                  You could make the head any shape you want and install any kind of pickups your little heart desires. Choice of wood, finish, binding.......

                  I'm still considering the possibilities The option to retire is months away so there's plenty of time to research the project.
