Vintage V62MR Icon, Distressed Ash Blonde

With many of the same features as the V52, the V62 comes with a higher output ‘overwound’ Wilkinson bridge pickup for extra bite, and with its highly resonant Eastern Poplar body providing excellent tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, the V62MR looks and feels like a familiar and favourite old guitar. This "impossible to put down" playability is further enhanced with an instantly comfortable ‘soft C’ profile on a great playing Hard Maple neck; a traditional 14" radius fingerboard with 22 Medium profile frets makes the comfort, speed, and accuracy of the V62 feel like a much higher priced guitar.

This is no cheaply made "bargain basement" instrument, and the tones produced by the pair of Wilkinson Single Coils may initially be traditional in nature, but with a few minutes playing, and some tweaks to the volume, the contemporary power and class of the Alnico begins to take hold - especially with the glorious "overwound" bridge position.

Controls are the standard Single master Volume and Tone with a three-way pickup selector switch, but this is where the standard features end; the Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge may look usual, but is a masterpiece of design which eliminates the age-old intonation problems often found in three saddle, fixed bridge designs. Likewise the Wilkinson WJ55S patented E-Z-Lok machine heads add to this contemporary specification despite their traditional appearance, and the excellent tuning stability they provide is further enhanced by the use of a well cut, smooth, and friction free Graphite nut.

    What Vintage say:

    The V62MRAB is the archetypal workhorse electric guitar, capable of providing a multitude of musical tones from its simple array of pickups and controls. However, in keeping with the Vintage ethos, the ICON Series features some deceptively future-proof design tweaks. Fixed bridges with three saddles are notoriously prone to intonation problems; the inclusion of the Wilkinson WTB bridge remedies this, allowing your leadwork and chord play to ring true all over the neck. Likewise, a 'soft C' profile allows unparalleled playability up and down the fretboard.

    Good things come to those who wait – but who has the time for that? The Vintage ICON Series replicates the beautiful, worn-in look and feel of an instrument that has paid its dues, without investing the lifetime's worth of woodshedding, rehearsing, performing and travel. This is a guitar that already looks like your lifetime companion; the best part is your journey is just beginning. Play on.
