Over recent years, many guitar enthusiasts have admired the virtuosic electric guitar style of Thomas Blug, one of Europe’s most respected players. Thomas has one of the most recognisable guitar sounds in the world, playing with a fluid, melodic and powerful style, and has over the years, become synonymous with his much-loved and instantly recognisable electric guitar, a well-used faded Olympic White ’61. As a player who has been the inspiration to thousands of players, Thomas chose Trev Wilkinson, and UK guitar brand Vintage®, to prove the point that it is possible to create in a signature guitar an instrument which faithfully recreates the unique attributes of his beloved white ’61. With its battle-scarred body, custom electronics and personalised switching all added to the already exceptionally well-specc’d Vintage® ReIssued SeriesTM V6 guitar, players looking for an edge with this iconic design, and who also perhaps aspire to emulate Thomas’ spine- tingling sound, can now buy exactly the same instrument which he uses in his day-to-day work.
