The Vintage ReIssued Series V6HMBB combines the very best of time-served aesthetics and forward-thinking design ingenuity.
A pair of Wilkinson WOVaS Single Coil pickups give the guitar the perfect balance between rich mids and detailed low end, just what you’d expect from a guitar of this nature. To complement the elegance of the single coils, the bridge pickup is a super-charged WOHZBb Double Coil, for high output volume and increased harmonics, ideal for high gain soloing.
The Wilkinson vibrato bridge, meanwhile, features an innovative stagger-drilled block which radically improves the guitar’s intonation, whilst maintaining incredible return-to-pitch accuracy.
Whether you’re searching for your first guitar or your last, every member of the Vintage ReIssued Series is a keeper. Play on.
