The Vintage V6 Icon HSS is loaded with an eclectic mix of single coil and humbucking pickups. The Wilkinson WVS single coils positioned at the neck and in the middle offer a traditional tone that encompasses sizzling highs, pronounced mids, and solid lows. They're perfect for capturing the sound of rock 'n' roll whilst also offering enough versatility to make your own mark. The Wilkinson WHHB humbucker at the bridge, on the other hand, produces an exceptionally raucous rock and blues tone.
If a legendary tone isn't enough, the controls on this guitar allow for even more tonal creativity. Explore the possibilities of each pickup or combine them any way you please using the 5-way pickup selector. From the rounded tone of the neck pickup to the aggressive snappiness of the bridge, the choice is all yours.
If you’re going to show off unashamedly, you'll want a slick neck and fretboard that will do you justice. Crafted from maple, the neck is not only sturdy, but also improves tonal qualities with great effect. It is the ideal wood for gigging with thanks to its high density which lends itself to quick note decay, resulting in minimal feedback and glistening clarity. Even when you're strumming, every note will ring out separately and gloriously. Mounted onto such an exquisite fretboard is the lignum rosa fretboard, another enticing feature of this guitar. Its smooth finish accommodates anything from ferocious riffing to magnificent blues solos.
Reaching the upper frets is easy thanks to the double cutaway shape of the alder body. Play those high notes of your screaming solos effortlessly and deliver a flawless set.
Don’t hold back. The hardware of this guitar has been designed to provide you with the utmost stability, a much-needed attribute for any wild playing or tough usage. WJ55 E-Z-LOK machine heads allow for speedy string changes whilst offering reliable tuning stability. Perform with expressive vibrato or pitch bends using the Wilkinson WVC tremolo without worrying about slipping out of tune. It features a 6-saddle design, made with bent steel saddles and four screw pivots, providing full adjustability and smooth action. Prepare for a truly amazing performance.
