Vanquish Classic #1

3,495.00

There's only ever one number 1! Introducing the first full serial number 'Classic'.

So what exactly is number one - it's our first Classic Model built from Adrian's private collection. Built using reclaimed Brazilian Mahogany from Manchester University which is hundreds of years old and gives this classic a little bit of magic.

As well as being a very special guitar it was also featured at the Winter NAMM show in January 2016 as part of the Orange stand as one of their demo guitars.

About the Classic Fusion

In 2013 Adrian started throwing around the concept of the 'Classic Fusion' with the idea of a player having one favourite guitar with the flexibility to meet any need.

The concept started with an old meets new philosophy, taking the best bits of vintage guitars and combining them with modern technologies and practises. A guitar that looks great and feels familiar but has the functionality and playability expected today.

What if you could swap your pickup choice without touching a soldering iron? Well the Classic Fusion features a 'Plug & Play' scratchplate system where you can swap from humbuckers to P90's to singlecoils in a matter of minuets, all designed around the classic so they sound at their absolute peak.

But what about the coil taps for the humbuckers? The Classic Fusion features two push/push pots that function regardless of the pickup selection, they either tap humbuckers or reduce the output of other pickups for a more vintage feel. 

Maybe you don't like tremolos... That's OK the reason the Classic Fusion uses a Bigsby is because it's mounted on a Vibramate so can easily be swapped to a stop tailpiece with no ugly holes left in the guitars body.
