«I chose my Vintage guitar because it was an award-winning guitar in its price range and it came highly recommended by my guitar teacher who knows a lot about guitars!
I was looking for quality craftsmanship and quality sound at a good price. But most importantly I chose it because I fitted me.
I used to have a dreadnaught… but it was just too big for me, I could barely get my arms around it. My Vintage V300 which I have affectionately named Gracie (Oh come on?! Who doesn’t name their guitar??) and I are the perfect fit. When you get a guitar that fits you, it’s suddenly so much easier to play well.
When I am gigging people often comment on my guitar, they like the size and they like the sound.. I’m quick to tell them they will like the price too! :0)» – Nikki
