The V100PBB offers an appealing alternative to the other models in the V100 crop, producing new sonic variations thanks to its unique choice of pickups.
Whilst every bit as reassuringly weighty as its solid bodied stablemates, the V100PBB is equipped with a pair of Wilkinson® W90 SK Black pickups; the choice of ‘soapbar’ pickups enables the V100PBB to serve up a pleasant tonal twist, capturing the defined lows and throaty mids of a double coil, with the transparent top end of a single coil. This choice of pickup is ready-made for blues and classic rock tones and is an ideal complement to the natural sustain of the guitar.
As with all V100 models, the unique cutaway allows unlimited access to the guitar’s 22-fret neck. Elsewhere, the choice of gold Wilkinson® hardware for the tuners, bridge and tailpiece is the natural partner for the instrument’s elegant Black finish.
When you need a guitar to give you the edge, in both the appearance and tone departments, the V100PBB looks every bit as classy as it sounds.
