USED - Vintage V6 Icon Series
The V6MRSSB 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 give 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 ICON Series 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. This is a guitar that already looks like your lifetime companion; the best part is your journey is just beginning. Play on.
V6MRSSB Features: Body: Eastern poplar body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with correctly radiused contoured body.
Vibrato: The Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge featured on the Vintage V6 is a masterpiece of detail. Positive location, 6 screw design provides 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.
