For its visual concept, construction, exceptional tone and playability alone, the solid bodied Vintage V62 electric guitar has, without doubt, become a firm favourite with guitar players around the world.
Now, like many models from the very popular Vintage Icon and ReIssued Series of guitars and basses, this beautiful guitar has also been hijacked by the Vintage team of highly skilled luthiers, emerging as yet another one-off, a masterpiece of stunning individuality.
Resprayed with a gorgeous, pristine high gloss Metallic Burgundy finish, this striking looking single cutaway model, will please guitar enthusiasts with its 1950’s style Bakelite scratchplate and the addition of the ‘ashtray’ bridge cover which, for many owners of early models has so often become lost or abandoned over the decades.
Needless to say, fitted with a pair of Wilkinson single coils the Vintage Metallic Burgundy ProShop V62 with a hard rock maple neck and 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, effortlessly delivers all the classic tones associated with this iconic designed guitar, ideal for country, jazz, blues and rock styles.
A Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge, Wilkinson Deluxe WJ55S machine heads and a friction free graphite nut, ensure tuning is rock solid and intonation is pin-point accurate.
