Vintage Deadpool ‘Wrexham Bob’ Custom ProShop guitar created to celebrate Wrexham AFC’s promotion, raises £1000, with all money raised donated to the Wrexham Miners Project.


The Vintage Deadpool ‘Wrexham Bob’ Custom ProShop guitar, was presented to Wrexham AFC manager Phil Parkinson and features the Club crest as well as paying homage to both Ryan Reynolds’s role in the award winning 20th Century Fox, American Superhero Deadpool movies and, his acquisition with American actor Rob McElhenney who together, purchased Wrexham AFC, one of the oldest football clubs in the UK.

This unique one-off electric guitar, constructed by the highly skilled team of Vintage UK luthiers raised £1,000, after going under the hammer at Wingetts Auction House in the city.

With Wingetts kindly waiving fees from the sale, all money raised has been donated to the Wrexham Miners Project dedicated to preserving and stewarding Wrexham’s mining history, whilst providing a dedicated building for all ages and disabilities.

Based on the popular single cutaway V100 from the popular Vintage® ReIssued™ Series of electric guitars and basses, this exquisite instrument encompasses the world of entertainment, style and beauty, where the skilled luthiers in the Vintage Custom ProShop have created the Deadpool ‘Wrexham Bob’ featuring the colourful Wrexham AFC club logo and ‘Rob/Ryan’ graphic artwork.

The auction created serious interest from both Wrexham supporters and fans of the blockbuster Deadpool movies with Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, a role which earned the Canadian born actor a host of nominations.

The actual name ‘Wrexham Bob’ was inspired from the famous 2016 Deadpool scrap yard fight scene with Wade Wilson and ‘Bob’ Agent of Hydra played by actor Bob Hayter.

Whilst all Vintage ProShop models are indeed, classic one offs, and when they’re gone they’re gone, the UK Vintage® ProShop® Custom-Build™ programme, enables individual musicians, collectors or companies to work with the luthiers at Vintage to design and build to their own specifications or based upon a wide selection of previous Vintage® ProShop® models.

JHS Managing Director, Paul Smith commented, “We are delighted to have presented the Vintage ProShop Custom guitar to raise funds for a very worthy charity. At Vintage we build dreams… just like Wrexham AFC has done for their fans!”

It’s the finest details within the incredibly authentic and expertly applied designs that have established the Vintage ProShop Series guitars with high esteem throughout the music industry.

Vintage guitars are distributed worldwide by JHS.
