The Vintage V6 offers an extraordinarily high level of specification, with many built-in custom shop level features. These include the revered Wilkinson WVC original specification vibrato featuring authentic bent steel saddles for that classic sparkle and tone; precision machined pivot points for total ‘return to pitch’ accuracy and a stagger-drilled sustain block to prevent string hang-up. An adjustable, ‘vintage bend’ push-in arm completes this definitive vibrato system.
Attention to authentic tone continues with the use of a matched and calibrated set of Wilkinson Alnico V single coil pickups, using a reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup for clarity and dynamics and feature true vintage-style chamfered edge polepieces. With one volume and two tone controls, the 5-way lever switch and control circuitry are configured for maximum tone, evenness of response and output for supreme versatility.

‘One really impressive aspect of the V6 is that all five selector settings have their own distinct character and they all deliver the goods whether clean, overdriven or distorted.’
Guitar & Bass Magazine
‘Wilkinson re-designed every component to his exhausting specs... it was a stunning success.’
Australian Guitar magazine
‘It’s rare for a guitar to feel truly effortless (especially when you pick it up for the first time) but the V6 is a joy to play.
Tuning is easy, with the guitar holding pitch well thanks to the E-Z-Lok string-locking system, and the classy-looking vibrato also features highly in our good books.’
