VINTAGE V100 MIDGE URE ~ GOLD TOP
"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." – Midge Ure
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.
The V100MU™ is an original Vintage® ReIssued Series guitar, designed and created by Trev Wilkinson, Midge Ure and the UK Vintage design team.
