Full Description

 

All-Mahogany Construction

 

The Vintage VEC501 comes equipped with a mahogany top that offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear, direct focus. The solid top is attached to rich-sounding mahogany back and sides which produce a resonant distinct warmth. Additionally, used as back and side panels, the mahogany delivers a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles. This sonically-pleasing mixture of tonewoods produces a rich, full-bodied acoustic sound, offering warmth, and resonance with a powerful response.

 

Dreadnought Cutaway

 

With a traditional dreadnought body and cutaway profile, the player is certain to benefit from its full-bodied, commanding voice and easy access to upper frets. The VEC501's dreadnought body offers great volume and projection whilst maintaining overall tonal balance, perfect for a wide range of genres and a loud acoustic performance. The tone produced is able to accommodate numerous genres and playing styles with ease, from rock, pop, indie, folk, roots music, and country, as well as flatpicking, western, and slide techniques. Furthermore, the big, bold dreadnought body offers a comfortable playing experience, although it is better-suited to the player more comfortable with bigger-bodied guitars, and those with a longer reach. For added comfort, the VEC501 also features a venetian cutaway profile that provides easy access to upper frets and more challenging chords with ease.
