Vintage V62 Reissued, Ash Blonde

Details
The Vintage V62 Reissued in Ash Blonde features an iconic single-cutaway design that is instantly recognisable as one of the classic guitar styles. Despite its highly accessible price-point, the Vintage V62 features quality tonewoods, stable and reliable Wilkinson hardware, and a modern playability for discerning players. The V62 features a bright and resonant alder body, enhanced by the Wilkinson single coil pickups which are voiced slightly hotter than vintage-style pickups for a wide range of traditional tones; perfect for blues, rock, country, and more. The traditional 3-saddle bridge is also a Wilkinson design, as are the tuners, so you'll be guaranteed stable tuning and a highly resonant voice. A graphite nut also assists with the tuning stability, while the traditional pickup configuration and vol/tone control arrangement provide simple yet direct access to a versatile range of sounds. The neck features a modern 14''-radius fingerboard and 22 medium frets, providing easy string bends and great balance across the strings. With its iconic single-cutaway design, vintage-hot tones, and modern playability, the V62 is the perfect traditional electric guitar for discerning students and professionals alike.

Quality Tonewoods

Despite the V62's accessible price, the guitar is constructed with a quality alder body and maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The alder body and maple neck lend the V62 a bright tonality with excellent resonance and sustain - perfect for blues, vintage rock, country and more. The iconic single cutaway design gives easy access to the top frets, so you'll have no problem reaching the top notes during solos. This fixed-bridge guitar design is renowned for its stability, making it an ideal workhorse instrument for those who traverse the genres of low-to-medium gain music.

Smooth Playability

Compared with the V62's vintage looks and tone, the neck features a strikingly modern 14'' 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 single cutaway assist with top-fret access for high range solos.

Trev Wilkinson Hardware

Like all Vintage guitars, the V62 features Trev Wilkinson-designed hardware, built on years of industry experience. The Wilkinson WTB bridge features a traditional 3-saddle design - the chunky saddles and fixed plate enable a bright tonality and excellent transfer of string vibrations. The bridge is complemented with Wilkinson Deluxe WJ55S tuners, providing quick and stable tuning. This fixed-bridge hardware design is renowned for its rock-solid stability, and makes the V62 ideal for long performances, touring, and practice sessions.

Wilkinson Vintage-Hot Pickups

The V62 is loaded with two Wilkinson alnico single-coil humbuckers and wired with single volume/tone controls for simple and direct tonal adjustments. The single coils feature a slightly-hotter-than-vintage voice, with a low/medium gain output; they can create a wide range of hot-rodded traditional tones - perfect for rock, blues, country, and more. The 3-way toggle switch provides a range of sounds, from biting bridge-position tones to mellow neck-position sounds. These pickups make the most of the tonal potential from the V62's open and resonant alder body, with a dynamic sound that brings out all the nuances of your playing.
