The Vintage V6 ICON Electric Guitar in Distressed Laguna Blue has the appearance of a battle-hardened road warrior but comes equipped with the added benefit of some modern embellishments. A trio of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups gives the guitar the perfect balance between scorching highs, rich mids and plummy low end. The Wilkinson vibrato bridge, meanwhile, features a stagger-drilled block which radically improves the guitar's intonation, whilst maintaining incredible return-to-pitch accuracy.
Good things come to those who wait – but who has the time for that? The Vintage V6 ICON replicates the beautiful, worn-in look and feel of an instrument that has paid its dues, without investing the lifetime's worth of woodshedding, rehearsing, performing and travel. The Eastern poplar body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with a correctly radiused contoured body.
Hard Rock Maple
The Hard rock Maple with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile gives instant comfort, speed, accuracy and great feel. A traditional 10-inch radius fingerboard provides positive feel and superior playability with 22 Medium profile frets add to the comfort, accuracy and overall positive feel of the Vintage V6. A 43mm Graphite nut, ensures your string bends remain smooth and friction-free.
A balanced set of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups, with staggered, chamfered edge pole pieces, lend authentic tone and contemporary power. The Reverse wound, reverse polarity centre pickup provides hum cancelling in switch position 2 and 4. A Wilkinson double coil pickup in the bridge position provides high output and hum-cancelling operation with a single Master Volume control with Tone control 1 for the neck pickup, and ‘Custom Mod' Tone control 2 for both the middle and bridge pickup. A five-way selector switch lends you plenty of room for sonic sculpting.
The Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge featured on the Vintage V6 is a masterpiece of detail. The positive location, 6 screw design provides a return to pitch accuracy; perpendicular bend, high-grade steel saddles enhance tonality and ‘snap’. A ground base plate corner provides authentic looks. The stagger-drilled cast block significantly enhances return to pitch accuracy and classic vintage tone whilst a ‘push-in’ Delrin-bushed arm with variable tension provides the arm feel that suits your style. Alongside this, Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok machine heads give you a simple, effective locking action for increased tuning stability. Staggered string post heights provide correct string rake angle for smooth vibrato action and correct playing tension.
The Vintage V6 ICON Electric Guitar in Distressed Laguna Blue was designed and created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Vintage design team. The Vintage ICON Series replicates the beautiful, worn-in look and feel of an instrument that has paid its dues with the reliability and playability of a much younger instrument.
