The Vintage Modern line combines the look of a vintage guitar with the feel and playability of a modern guitar for unique take on the classic design with added player comfort and access. This is the Classic JM shape taken to the next level. Built right here on the sunny California coast, where it all started!
The Vintage Modern Series guitars gives a nod to the past in aesthetics while taking playability and appointments into the future. Add double binding, block inlays or a custom two-tone paint job to take your Cardiff to the next level. The fast 10″ – 14″ radius and spoke wheel adjuster, for easy access and quick truss rod adjustment, makes this model one of our favorites!
