Vintage V58JD ReIssued Jerry Donahue, Ash Blonde

Hailed by Danny Gatton as 'the string bending King of the Planet' Jerry Donahue's intimidating guitar technique requires an instrument capable of accommodating his herculean fretboard heroics. The V58JD is the result of Vintage's extensive work with Jerry to produce an instrument to his specifications; single coil pickups custom wound to Jerry’s exact recipe, and custom wired five-way switch circuitry being just two of the features unique to this highly versatile guitar.

The classically shaped American Alder body feels tight and comfortable whilst also providing excellent resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, which is further enhanced by the incredibly positive feeling one piece Hard Maple neck. A traditional 7.25" radius Maple fingerboard with 22 Medium profile frets further adds to the guitar's speed, accuracy and excellent playability.

Pickups are two Custom Designed Wilkinson® WJTD Single Coils; wound to Jerry's specifications, these pickups feature Alnico II magnets for a smooth tone with just a touch of warmth. The Single master Volume and Tone controls are as standard for this classic design, but with the addition of the Donohue type custom wired five-way switch circuitry, this guitar becomes capable of far more sonic flavours and tones than those we've come to love and expect from such a guitar.

The simple but highly effective Wilkinson WJ55S patented E-Z-Lok machine heads adorn the classic Vintage headstock, which when combined with a 43mm Graphite nut, and Wilkinson's excellent WTB intonatable bridge, creates a smooth, stable, and friction free tuning and playing experience - perfect for those Donahue inspired two and three string bends.

    What Vintage say:

    Using unique Wilkinson single coil pickups custom wound to Jerry’s exact recipe and his custom wired five-way switch and circuitry, Trev has created an instrument which achieves Jerry’s vision – one single guitar which can emulate a huge number of the most instantly recognizable solid-body and semi-acoustic tones out there.

    Working closely with Jerry, the Vintage V58JDAB has been designed to ensure that every inch of the instrument is built to the exact specifications of the man himself. As you might expect, two and three string bends are made slightly more accessible to mere mortals thanks to the V58JDAB's uniquely flatter fingerboard, while the guitar's five-way selector switch proffers up new and exciting tones in the two pickup/single cutaway configuration, making this instrument an ideal choice for country, blues, jazz and all styles in between.
