Area59' Hasn't look and sound this good since 59'
First....both sounds fantastic! Maybe the best Vintage PAF covers ava. in this pricerange!
As the name says... the difference is the method those covers are polished to get the typical Vintage look... The modern ones polished by hand with a wheel...The Vintage LTD method Covers are polished with a "Belt"... both covers has the typical Vintage look. Also the platingtime on those covers is slightly different (sorry this is secret). This process needs a lot of experience and more time and its done by one staff member with lot of knowledge about the Vintage building and polishing technique (This guy doin this job for more then 30 years)...
The Vintage LTD -Nickname "RAPP" Cover-...real accurate and perfect plated! The Vintage LTD Covers has slightly more thinned out dimple holes in case of the method they are polished, but thats not the only difference...the Vintage covers has a shorter plating time with the thinnest possible plating available.
