We've dressed this Special Edition 870 up in true vintage style- Cool Vintage burst, white "1964' style guard- vintage style pickups and hardware, Quality components, Hand picked woods, hand dressed frets, hand cut GRAPHITE nut… Heck we’ve already upgraded the HELL out of this thing! The satin finished vintage tinted neck is now vintage-correct 21 frets!
The XV-870 takes the classic double cutaway guitar to a whole new level of quality and value. NEVER has there been a guitar at this price with this level of playability, hand craftsmanship and amplified tone.
We hand pick only the driest, lightest Poplar and Alder. No glue-hogs for us- only 3 piece bodies, finished in super hard, super thin, super light Catalyzed Urethane, hand buffed to a deafening gloss. PLEASE don’t compare these to other sub$200 guitars- compare them to the BEST out there.
We’ve installed only the best- Our own Vintage USA spaced tremolo with full sized sustain block, a FULL RETAIL SET of famous GFS “Vintage Alnico Staggers” for true vintage tone. The middle pickup is RW/RP so positions 2 and 4 are noise canceling.
We strongly recommend you ship this guitar in a hard case- and we're offering $10 off ANY case when ordered at the same time as the guitar.
