    I believe it's from the "vintage modified" series

    Yes, vintage modified before they rebranded the model as classic vibe a couple of years ago.

    I prefer the VM of this model, but that's me.

    Yes, Vintage Modified '70s and you got it for a great price. I feel they're equal or better in quality to a Classic Vibe. Quality tuners, same pickups as the CV.

    £230 for that + an amp?
    Why don't I ever find bargains like that.
    It looks good, and if it sounds as good as it looks, what does it matter if it's a CV or VM. You dropped lucky either way. Enjoy.

    I have always wished I have gotten one of those in the SS before they quit making them.

    Thinlines are great guitars, light weight and great sounding. Your guitar and amp setup is solid for gigs and can more than keep up with a spirited drummer & bass player...... that is, as soon as things open up again. Enjoy
