Has anybody got or played a Vintage V300 guitar, any comments?
Does anybody know the neck width at the nut? The Vintage catalogue does not state this measurement

I've got a mahogany Vintage v300mh...I'm guessing the one you're talking about is the spruce version which I've never tried.

I'm very happy with mine...a friend had bought one for about £120 a few years back after it won some guitar magazine accolade (best guitar under £1000 or something). I was very impressed with the mellow tone and kept my eyes open. Last year I managed to snag one on ebay for about £60 (which I admit was a complete steal).

I think they do a larger version of the same thing (v400) but I prefer the size of this one. It makes it ideal for playing where space is tight (eg pub sessions). I think it's great value for money and plays more like an instrument in the £300 price range. The finishing is good...only slight downside for me is the frets seem quite chunky but that's probably just personal preference (I'm more aware of them under my fingers as I slide up and down the neck)

I have a V400MH and am well pleased with it as are some of my chums one of whom always says it gives his all mahogany Dread Martin "a run for it's money" I paid £149 two years ago - every home should have one!

it does seem to be the mahogany versions that have had all the rave reviews, rather than the spruce.

I was going to get one myself, until I decided to go for one of Recording King's all-solid mahogany (rather than laminate) guitars.

I once played Vintage's cheapest Jumbo size guitar - I forget the model number - and thoroughly enjoyed playing it. Not sure why - the tone wasn't amazing or anything - think it was just a guitar that happened to suit my hands and fingers and arms really well. Almost regret not buying it, but Ive got too many guitars as it is.
