The original Vintage V6HMRSB is still one of the most popular models in the V6 Series. The Wilkinson neck and middle pickups deliver classic single coil sonic characteristics. The Wilkinson Double Coil pickup at the bridge for extra bite and output for soaring solos, has also been fitted with a push/pull coil tap at the rear tone control. This guitar has to be one of the most versatile instruments in the V6 Series of electric guitars.
The Vintage design team of master artisans decided, “If it works so well, why change the science of this beautiful instrument? Let’s just create a visually stunning aged patina to complement this gorgeous player.”
The body and neck now have a satin matt acrylic lacquer finish, polished out to enhance the accurately applied wear and tear effect of a guitar that’s really paid its dues. The neck is sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look, along with the headstock, is given a cellulose amber coating.
The vintage charm is enhanced further with a 3-ply tortoise shell scratchplate offset with the black Double Coil and aged cream single coil pickup covers, volume and tone controls to blend into the pre-worn picture.
