Vintage Icon Series V96 reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the November issue of the magazine features a review of the Icon Series V96 bass guitar from Vintage. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“If you want a modern approach to a fretless bass sound, if you love a metallic string tone and at the same time feel strong affection towards upright bass-like glisses, than the Icon Series V96 will satisfy your needs.”

“This fretless Vintage stringed with roundwound strings does not sound like a few decades old bass. It has a precise, bright attack followed by clear sustain.”

“Thanks to the fact that this instrument is well crafted and comfortable to play, you can instantly sit down and begin your intonation practice which is key to success with playing fretless guitars.”
