The Vintage V6 Thomas Blug Signature Electric Guitar with it's 'Summer of Love' finish is a psychedelic tone machine that evokes the spirit of rock and roll in the late Sixties. Thomas Blug explains; “I wanted a guitar that looked cool, like Hendrix's, but with all the features of my modern-day signature guitar.” In keeping with Thomas' requests, the V6MRHDX is equipped with the same top-quality specs as both his treasured '61 and his original Vintage signature V6 guitar; meticulously aged parts simulate years of wear and tear, while the 7.5-inch fingerboard radius, sophisticated switching and hum-cancelling wiring of Blug's Vintage signature are replicated. Authentic 60s style aluminium shielding under scratchplate reduces him and static noise, while Thomas' 'Bukka' switch provides access to extra tones via a push-push tone control.
Summer of Love
Imbued with the sense of freedom for creative expression that embodied the age by which it was inspired, the V6MRHDX 'Summer of Love' also features a reversed headstock and eye-catching, hand-applied graphics specially created by German artist Daniel Hahn. American alder body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with correctly radiused contoured body.
Hard Rock Maple
A Hard rock Maple with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile delivers instant comfort, speed, accuracy and great feel with a 7.5-inch radius fingerboard for a positive feel and superior playability. 21 Medium profile frets increase comfort, accuracy and the overall positive feel of the Vintage V6 with a 43mm Graphite nut that facilitates smooth string bending and friction-free vibrato use.
A balanced set of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups, with staggered, chamfered edge pole pieces, for authentic tone and contemporary power. The reverse-wound, reverse polarity centre pickup provides hum-cancelling in switch position 2 and 4. To control your tone you get a single Master Volume control, with Tone controls for the bridge and neck pickup, and five-way selector switch.
The Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge featured on the Vintage V6 is a masterpiece of detail. Positive location, 6 screw design provides a return to pitch accuracy; perpendicular bend, high-grade steel saddles enhance tonality and ‘snap’. Ground base plate corner provides authentic looks. Stagger drilled cast block significantly enhances return to pitch accuracy and classic vintage tone. The ‘push-in’ Delrin-bushed arm with variable tension provides the arm feel that suits your style. The Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok tuners offer 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 Thomas Blug Signature Electric Guitar in Summer of Love is an original Vintage® ICON Series™ guitar created by Trev Wilkinson, Thomas Blug and the UK Vintage design team.
