The Vintage ReIssued Series V6MFR combines the very best of time-served aesthetics and forward-thinking design ingenuity. A trio of Wilkinson WVS Alnico V pickups give the guitar the perfect balance between scorching highs, rich mids and plummy low end, just what you’d expect from a guitar of this nature. 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.
