The Vintage V501 Acoustic Dreadnought is a typical example of the Vintage design team’s relentless quest for innovation, authentic tone and outstanding playability. They are all well aware that there’s a lot more to a dreadnought acoustic guitar than just sounding big, there’s also an air of projection volume and authority.
Crafted with a satin-finished mahogany back and sides and solid sitka spruce soundboard, the output is indeed big, but has all the sonic merits that add up to an outstanding big bodied acoustic guitar. From soft arpeggio to vibrant percussive strumming, the V501 retains detailed, touch-sensitive harmonics and dynamics, with impressive volume and projection.
Features that make the Vintage V501 a best seller include a mahogany headstock bedecked with smooth-geared closed back, chrome tuners and an Eastern Mahogany neck and profile that’s a pleasure to cradle. Fret dressings are a Vintage speciality and combined with a silky smooth, bound fingerboard, offer excellent action and playability.
Stylish touches continue with maple body binding, herringbone/abalone soundhole rosette design, inlaid Vintage ‘V’ motif at the 12th fret, NuBone saddle and transparent pickguard.
With a huge amount of understated class, the Vintage V501 is unreservedly recommended as a scarily good dreadnought acoustic.
