The Vintage V52 Reissued Electric Guitar in Butterscotch is the archetypal workhorse electric guitar, capable of providing a multitude of musical tones from its simple array of pickups and controls. However, in keeping with the Vintage ethos, the ICON Series features some deceptively future-proof design tweaks. Fixed bridges with three saddles are notoriously prone to intonation problems; the inclusion of the Wilkinson WTB bridge remedies this, allowing your leadwork and chord play to ring true all over the neck.
Easter Poplar Body
Eastern poplar body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with a correctly radiused contoured body. Poplar is a versatile tonewood that allows you to play a wide variety of styles.
Hard Rock Maple
A Hard rock Maple with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile for instant comfort, speed, accuracy and great feel allowing unparalleled playability up and down the fretboard. The traditional 14-inch radius fingerboard provides positive feel and superior playability whilst 22 Medium profile frets add to the comfort, accuracy and overall positive feel of the Vintage V52. A 43mm Graphite nut ensures smooth and friction-free string bending.
A Pair of Wilkinson Single Coils offer traditional tones combined with contemporary power, courtesy of a WVTN Alnico pickup at the neck and a WVOB Alnico in the bridge position. Single master Volume and Tone controls with three-way pickup selector switch allow for plenty of tone sculpting to taste.
The Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge featured on the Vintage V52 is a masterpiece of design, eliminating age-old intonation problems often found in three saddle, fixed bridge designs. Meanwhile, the Wilkinson WJ55S patented E-Z-Lok machine heads offer a simple, effective locking action for increased tuning stability.
The Vintage V52 Reissued Electric Guitar in Butterscotch is an original Vintage® ICON Series guitar, designed and created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Vintage design team.
