Vintage instruments have a long experience building high quality affordable instruments. This brand covers everything from folk and classic instruments to aggressive modern designs. One of the reasons why these instruments perform so well is that the great instrument designer Trev Wilkinson is a part of the Vintage team.
When we decided to start offering these instruments, we chose to start with the amazing Icon range. This is a series of classic design instruments and come with a nice Relic finish. This just shows how popular Relic finishes are, and Vintage have hit the nail in the head by offering the first affordable relic series instruments.
The bass that you see here is the Precision version inside the Icon series, and has been given the Relic treatment really well, assuring great stage looks.
The good news is that this bass is not just about cosmetics: playability is superb, and the range of sounds is quite amazing for the price. Actually, this is one of the few basses that come with a Tone control that actually does something. The single coil split Wilkinson pickup is very able, and rolling down the Tone control will take you from punk-rock aggressiveness to deep sub tones in a second. Could you ask for more?
