Just saw this over at the vinettoguitars.com site... Pretty cool, IMO...!
Very cool! I love that fretboard with the other colors. Glad he didn't put P90s in it or I might be in trouble!
Yeah, some P90s would KILL in that one...! LOL!
I have a Vinetto on order, cant decide on a color.
If I didnt already have a sonic blue Suhr, this would be a serious contender.
P-90 instead of the mini's? Hmmmmm
Shoreline Gold would be cool...
Just FYI: Daves guitars has a nice used one for sale. Exactly like that but Red for $1499. Sweet.........
Sherwood Green is where it's at!
Collect them all..!!!
The Daphne Blue one is on the way to the Mesa Boogie Hollywood store along with a smokin' mahogany core/ash top Deuce TC in two tone sunburst for all you SoCal guys.
Yeah, Shoreline and Sherwood are a couple of my faves as well. Unfortunately, DuPont stopped production of Lucite lacquer, which is sad. I've still got a couple of cans around, but when that's gone...
Get a magic marker, and write my name on the Shoreline, Vince...! LOL!
Dave, PM sent.
What do you guys think of Shell Pink?
I like it on a Strat. Hard to visualize it on one of Vince's guitars, though...
I just picked up a used Vinetto recently after lusting for one for a while. Three pickup teles are my favorite. I was a bit leary of the switching arrangement but after using it, it works great and every position is very usable. The Lollar minis are a perfect match for the noiseless DiMarzio tele pickup. The 25" scale works really well on this guitar too. You can use 10's and they bend kind of like 9.5's or 9's which is great for big bends near the nut.
This one has a one piece swamp ash body and a big neck. Great shape (except for a strangely buggered up pickguard ) and really nice playability and tone. Highly recommended!
I'd replace the middle mini-h w/a P90.
OK, before anybody thinks were doing aged guitars, let me assure you it didn't leave here looking like that!
Looks like the lacquered bakolite pickguard could use a nice buffing!
Looks like Im going to go with an aged olympic white with tortoise guard.
Non-relic option.. LOL!
Going to be saweeet!:AOK
LOL! You know, funny you should mention the aging Vince.....before I found this used Vinetto (which was pretty much exactly what I would have ordered), I actually considered asking if you would relic a new Vinetto. I have a couple of your Fender relics, so it would be kind of like a "ten years after" thing...... But on second thought, I figured it might be too strange.
BTW, yes I'm sure the guard was in a non-relic'ed state when it left your shop!
I've been holding off talking about my Vinetto for fear of being accused of spamming, but I just can't hold back any longer. This guitar plain rocks!!! As his website says the guitar is instantly familiar and at the same time very fresh. It is so good that I immediately started looking at Vince's site contemplating a custom order in the near future. The 50's neck is perfection, no better T-style neck anywhere. The Lollar in the neck position is so smooth and round sounding, really makes it an extremely versatile axe. Love it for slide work. I had reservations about the Dimarzio in the bridge but upon plugging in and rocking out I have found it to match perfectly. Kinda killed all my preconceived notions about Dimarzio's. The fit and finish is stellar, burst finish is a thing of beauty. I really can't imagine how Vince could make these guitars any better, other than basic body/pickguard combinations and different flavors of pickups. I'm really hurting for a blackguard over butterscotch ash body, Lollar P-90 in the neck, Dimarzio in the bridge. That would be pure heaven with serious balls! Again, please don't just take this as spam or a backhanded salepitch, seriously, I hope no one buys this guitar anytime soon. If they did I would immediatley start looking for another or call Vince up for an order. Try one, you'll like it! :AOK
P.S. One other thing worth mentioning is how well done the pickguard shape is, blends right in with the instrument. I really like the T-to-S style, looks really classy!
Vince has kindly offered to swap out the pickguard for me.:AOK
.....and I think he's gonna use it on Dave Orban's guitar
Also to the credit of the GP seller, he had already offered to cover any replacement cost as soon as I mentioned it. Good folks all around!
