The Vintage ReIssued Series V72FTB features a chambered body, providing a huge increase in resonance and adding an acoustic property to the guitar's amplified tone. The V72HFTB is outfitted with a Wilkinson Ceramic Double Coil pickups in the neck and an alnico Single Coil in the bridge, making it a perfect companion for a number of musical styles.
Featuring the Wilkinson WTB bridge this classic 3-saddle design has been around for over 50 years and is still regarded as the ultimate tone machine. Staggered brass saddles offer individual string intonation, never before available in a design of this type. The baseplate itself is a faithful reproduction of the original, made from steel, very important in a bridge of this style due to the tonal effect it has on the magnetic field of the pickup mounted in it.
