Be one of only 100 guitarists worldwide to own one of these limited edition Vintage V6H celebratory masterpieces.
The Vintage 25th Anniversary Series limited edition V6HSVB celebrates a milestone in the company’s history and is in honour of their 25th anniversary of guitar craftsmanship.
Based on the Vintage® V6™, the V6HSVB is built on a solid foundation of classic Vintage craftsmanship and aesthetics, time-tested Wilkinson hardware and hand-picked tonewoods.
With a striking and rare two-tone Silver Burst finish, the V6HSVB, one of three models within the Vintage 25th Anniversary Series, looks stunning with a contrasting 3-ply black-white-black scratchplate, off-set with cream/black pickup covers, cream coloured controls and chrome hardware.
A pair of Wilkinson WOVaS Single Coil pickups in the neck and middle positions provide a wide range of traditional tonewood enhanced sonics from the highly resonate, double cutaway 2-piece American alder body and hard rock maple neck, delivering sensational note separation and clarity throughout its wide frequency range.
As a matched pair, they deliver single coil chime and clarity in abundance with power and punch that’s perfect for crunch, mild gain and full-on overdrive, with fat note solos rolling off beautifully. A hum cancelling Wilkinson WOHZBb Double Coil at the bridge increases volume, harmonics and extra bite for soaring solos and, when coil-tapped, has been expertly voiced to deliver authentically accurate single coil tones.
With a single master Volume control with tone control 1 for the neck pickup, and ‘Custom Mod' Tone control 2 for both the middle and bridge pickup and five-way selector switch, there’s no doubt why the V6H is one of the most versatile, stylish work horse rock machines around.
The sleek, fast neck has a gorgeous amber tan and matching headstock with 25th Anniversary headstock decal, while a super-smooth Rosewood fingerboard with 22 polished frets, is straight off the ‘plays itself’ shelf.
The theme behind Wilkinson hardware has always been innovative, problem solving designs, the last thing a guitarist needs to worry about on stage is the guitar’s hardware. The Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok machine heads are a prime example and, fitted to the V6HSVB offer simple, effective locking action for increased tuning stability and fast string changing.
The strings themselves pass through a precision-cut, friction-free GraphTech NuBone nut for smooth string bending and onward to the Wilkinson 6 screw design WVC vibrato with a stagger drilled, cast block, where six high grade steel saddles enhance classic vintage tones assuring precise intonation, tuning and accurate return to pitch.
Built by highly skilled Vintage craftsmen, the gorgeous 25th Anniversary Series V6HSVB guitar, unites all the innovative incarnations that have made the V6 a Vintage classic, a best-seller, and the number one choice for a countless guitar players around the world, favoured for its consistency, superb playability and exceptional tone.
The appointments and hardware selection for the V6HSVB 25th Anniversary model, represent that of an experienced design team who, after a quarter of a century of loyal support wanted to give something back to Vintage guitar fans and collectors, who have waited anxiously for the launch of the new and exciting Vintage 25th Anniversary Series.
Like all three Limited Edition models in the exquisite Vintage 25th Anniversary Series, the V6HSVB comes complete with a Vintage 25th Anniversary embroidered canvas gig bag and individually numbered certificate of authentication.
From the heart of the Vintage Team:
