Built using genuine tone woods, with top quality Wilkinson hardware and authentic recipe pickups, the Vintage Re-Issued Series V6 guitar punches well above its modest price tag.
The Vintage V6 offers an extraordinarily high level of specification, with many built-in custom shop level features. These include the revered Wilkinson WVC original specification vibrato featuring authentic bent steel saddles for that classic sparkle and tone; precision machined pivot points for total 'return to pitch’ accuracy and a stagger-drilled sustain block to prevent string hang-up. An adjustable, 'vintage bend’ push-in arm completes this definitive vibrato system.
Attention to authentic tone continues with the use of a matched and calibrated set of Wilkinson Alnico V single coil pickups, using a reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup for clarity and dynamics and feature true vintage-style chamfered edge polepieces. With one volume and two tone controls, the 5-way lever switch and control circuitry are configured for maximum tone, evenness of response and output for supreme versatility.
The V6™ is an original Vintage® ReIssued Series guitar, designed and created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Vintage design team.
