The V6H ICON Electric Guitar in Distressed Tobacco Sunburst is instantly identifiable to fans of Texas blues but comes with the added benefit of some modern embellishments. A Wilkinson Double Coil pickup in the bridge position gives the guitar more bite and thickness for gain-laden lead lines, whilst eliminating hum. The Wilkinson vibrato bridge, meanwhile, features a stagger-drilled block which radically improves the guitar's intonation, whilst maintaining incredible return-to-pitch accuracy.
The V6M has an Eastern Poplar body that provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with a correctly radiused contoured body. Poplar provides a balanced tone that's great for a wide variety of musical styles whether it's clean picking or distorted riffing.
Hard Rock Maple
A Hard Rock Maple neck with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile gives instant comfort, speed, accuracy and great feel with a distressed look for added authenticity. A Traditional 10-inch radius fingerboard provides positive feel and superior playability. 22 Medium profile frets add to comfort, accuracy and overall positive feel of the Vintage V6M with a 43mm Graphite nut to ensure smooth and friction-free string bending.
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.
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’. The ground base plate corner provides authentic looks whilst the 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. Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok machine heads 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 V6H ICON Electric Guitar in Distressed Tobacco Sunburst is an original Vintage® ICON Series guitar, designed and created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Vintage design team. Whether you're searching for your first guitar or your last, every member of the Vintage ICON Series is a keeper.
