Be one of only 100 guitarists worldwide to own one of these limited edition Vintage V75 celebratory masterpieces.
The Vintage 25th Anniversary Series limited edition V75SVB celebrates a milestone in the company’s history and is in honour of their 25th anniversary of guitar craftsmanship.
Based on the Vintage® V75™, the V75SVB 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 V75SVB, one of three models within the Vintage® 25th Anniversary Series, looks stunning with a contrasting 5-hole, single ply black scratchplate, off-set with chrome hardware.
A Wilkinson WVTN alnico pickup at the neck and an alnico WVTB in the bridge position, delivers the V75SVB with a wide range of traditional tonewood enhanced sonics from the highly resonate, 2-piece American alder body and hard rock maple neck, with sensational note separation and clarity throughout its wide frequency range.
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 3-saddle WTB bridge is a prime example and, without doubt the most versatile bridge of its kind available.
Based on a design that has been around for well over 60 years, the outstanding Wilkinson WTB bridge is a tonal tour de force.
The magic combination of cold rolled steel base plate, which provides a cocoon of steel mass, focussing the magnetic field of the bridge pickup for massive, incisive tone, the four screw thru body stringing configuration which anchors the bridge solidly to the body for maximum string energy transfer and sustain, plus the truly intuitive innovation of three ‘360 half hard brass’ rod individually machined height adjustable intonatable saddles for perfect set-up and spot on tuning, all combine to make what on the face of it is a simple part of the guitar into a “whole” which is intrinsic and fundamental to the tonal signature and capabilities of the overall guitar.
For the non tech heads amongst us that means the V75SVB is the ultimate tone machine, perfect for a host of musical styles, from fingerpicking country, blues and jazz to full-on rock.
The sleek, fast neck has a gorgeous amber tan and matching headstock with 25th Anniversary headstock decal, while a super-smooth maple fingerboard with 22 polished frets, is straight off the ‘plays itself’ shelf.
A set of Deluxe Wilkinson WJ55 machine heads are simple and effective for increased tuning stability and fast string changing, while a precision-cut, friction-free GraphTech NuBone nut, tenders smooth string bending and accurate tuning.
Built by highly skilled Vintage craftsmen, the gorgeous 25th Anniversary Series V75SVB guitar unites all the innovative incarnations that have made the V75 a Vintage classic, a best-seller and the number one choice for countless guitar players around the world, favoured for its consistency, superb playability and exceptional tone
The appointments and hardware selection for the V75SVB 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 V75SVB comes complete with a Vintage 25th Anniversary embroidered canvas gig bag and individually numbered certificate of authentication.
