The Vintage V501 Acoustic Dreadnought Mahogany 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.
The theme throughout is indeed mahogany, with a satin finish for the back, sides and solid mahogany top. This all-mahogany uniform construction includes an Eastern Mahogany neck with a profile that’s a pleasure to cradle.
The output is indeed big, but the Vintage V501~ Mahogany 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. 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.
