<img alt="img" src="/Portals/0/vintcopy2.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 501px; float: left; margin-right: 9px; margin-bottom: 9px;" />The Vintage Gordon Giltrap signature model has received nothing but praise since its release, and Vintage has now introduced a new acoustic-only version of the guitar in beautiful mahogany.<br /> &nbsp; <br /> The Vintage V2000MGG features the same distinctive slim-waisted Rob Armstrong-designed body shape as the original cedar-topped version, this time with a solid mahogany top (without binding &ndash; Gordon's preference), mahogany sides, gold-plated Grover tuners and a tusq graphite nut and saddle.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Priced at approximately $650 U.S., the V2000MGG includes a signature hardshell case and a stick-on scratchplate with a printed Gordon Giltrap signature (to be fitted if desired). The guitar has a punchy tone that covers the complete sonic spectrum with ease - it's at home whether you're strumming away on big open chords, or if you're more prone to delicate finger picking exercises.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Gordon said: &ldquo;My new mahogany model is an absolutely fantastic instrument. It's the same spec as my standard Vintage V2000GG signature model, but without the pickup system. It's an amazing guitar and represents incredible value for money. I'm absolutely thrilled with it &ndash; a wonderful guitar!&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Check out <strong><a target="_blank" href="http://www.jhs.co.uk/gordongiltrap.html">Gordon's exclusive video demo of the new guitar</a></strong>.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Vintage acoustic guitars are distributed worldwide by <strong><a target="_blank" href="http://www.jhs.co.uk/">John Hornby Skewes &amp; Co.
