6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Details
The Vintage VS6 Reissued in Gloss Black is built to rock with its iconic twin-horn design and stand-out looks. Despite its highly accessible price-point, the Vintage VS6 features quality tonewoods, stable and reliable Wilkinson hardware, and a modern playability for discerning players. The VS6 features a warm and resonant mahogany body with a mahogany set-in neck for long sustain. The tonewoods are enhanced by Wilkinson MWVC humbuckers which are vintage-voiced and based on the classic PAF design; perfect for rock and blues with nuance and bite. The tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece is also a Wilkinson design, as are the tuning machineheads, so you'll be guaranteed stable tuning and a highly resonant voice. A graphite nut also assists with the tuning stability, while the 3-way pickup selector and dual volume/tone arrangement provides access to a wide range of sounds. The neck features a modern 12''-radius fingerboard and 22 medium frets, providing easy string bends and great balance across the strings, while the offset body design and angled heel enhance the top-fret access to enable easy high-range soloing. With its iconic double-cutaway design, twin humbucking pickups, and smooth playability, the VS6 is perfect for players looking make a raucous tone on stage or in the studio; it is ideal for students and professionals alike. If you love the sounds of classic rock and blues, you'll love the vintage-inspired feel and tones of the VS6.

Quality Tonewoods

Despite the Vintage VS6's accessible price, the guitar is constructed with a quality mahogany body and neck with a rosewood fingerboard. This tonewood combination lends the VS6 a classic tonality with excellent warmth, resonance and sustain - perfect for blues, rock, and more. The iconic double cutaway design is offset to provide easy access to the top frets, so you'll have no problem reaching the top notes during solos, while the smooth body contours give a comfortable playing feel whether stood up or sat down.

Smooth Playability

Compared with the VS6's vintage looks and tone, the neck features a modern 12'' fingerboard radius which provides excellent balance across the strings, along with the ability to set up a low string action with no risk of the strings "choking" when you play string bends. The slim neck sits easily in the left hand, while the low-profile neck joint and offset double cutaway assists with top-fret access for high range solos. This playability gives you the smooth feel of a more modern instrument with the looks and sounds of a classic guitar.

Trev Wilkinson Hardware

Like all Vintage guitars, the VS6 features Trev Wilkinson-designed hardware, built on years of industry experience. The Wilkinson tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece features a traditional fixed design that enables full string adjustability along with optimal transfer of string vibrations.

The bridge is complemented with Wilkinson WJ44 tuners, providing a smooth action for quick and stable tuning. A graphite nut assists with tuning by providing a friction-free platform for the strings to pass over when bending strings and tuning.

Wilkinson Humbucking Pickups

The VS6 is loaded with Wilkinson MWVC humbuckers which are vintage-voiced in the style of classic PAF pickups. These pickups provide a strong humbucking tone with excellent definition, nuance, and dynamic range, courtesy of their medium-gain output. This style of pickup is perfect for blues and rock players who require all the nuances of their playing to translate through the amplifier. The MWVC humbuckers enhance the warm and resonant tone of the mahogany body/neck, giving you a fat tone with great sustain.
