Wilkinson Split-Coil Pickup

The Vintage V4 is equipped with a single Wilkinson WBP split-coil pickup, delivering a classic bass tone many fans will appreciate. Designed with Alnico V magnets and featuring original spec dimensions, this pickup infuses the V4 Icon with a warm tone and an authentic vintage character. Its medium output and hum-cancelling performance provides players with a beautifully versatile sound that’s saturated in rich harmonics, perfect for a wide variety of playing styles and musical genres.

High-Quality Construction

To ensure players receive a high-quality instrument, a comfortable playing experience, and stunning soundscapes, the Vintage V4 Icon is crafted from a lightweight eastern poplar body, hard maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. This combination of tonewoods provides the V4 bass with a beautifully broad dynamic range, perfect for a variety of playing styles. The relationship between the maple neck and rosewood fingerboard adds a bright, mellow character to the overall tone, while the rosewood helps to smooth out the maple's rough edges to create sparkling highs and thick, creamy lows. To create that iconic look of an instrument that’s seen decades of playing, the Vintage V4 is finished with a distressed sunset sunburst to mimic an extensive life on the road.

Excellent String Stability

The heart of a good bass sound lies with the string anchoring, and the addition of an adjustable bridge, graphite nut, and Wilkinson machine heads make sure that’s the way it stays. The V4’s bridge features a face mounted and fully adjustable design, with the rear loaded strings passing over the chunky bridge saddles for maximum bottom end tone. The Wilkinson WJBL200 machine heads provide an incredibly smooth action for quick and easy tunings, while the elephant ear style tuning keys add to the V4 Icon’s classic appearance.
