The Vintage V100MU is a signature electric guitar, built to the express specifications of Midge Ure. A multi-million-selling artist with Ultravox, Midge’s remit for his signature model was as unique as his music. As a result, the V100MU combines classic single cutaway looks with some intuitive modern advances.
Utilising a pair of stacked WP90SK soap bar pickups, the instrument employs a Varicoil circuit, allowing you to shift effortlessly between single and double coil tones, as well as blending the sounds found in between. In addition, a Wilkinson Roller Bridge and Vibrola system provides the perfect mix of pitch manipulation with dependable tuning stability.
As well as satisfying the demands of the man himself, the V100MU has been designed to find its way into the hands of anyone seeking an adaptable and agile guitar that’s ready for the studio and the stage.
Whether you’re searching for your first guitar or your last, every member of the Vintage ReIssued Series is a keeper. Play on.
