Vintage V6HMR Icon, Distressed Sunburst

Instantly indentifiable to Texas blues fans, the V6HMR Icon in Distressed Sunburst features a traditionally styled Eastern Poplar body, a pair of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups, and a Wilkinson double coil pickup in the bridge position; every bit a masterpiece of detail, classic style, and pure playability.

The WVS pickups feature staggered, chamfered edge pole pieces for classic tone and power, while the bridge position double coil provides high output and a hum cancelling operation. A positive location, 6 screw trem/bridge design, with ‘push-in’ variable tension delrin-bushed arm, provides an accurate return to pitch; perpendicular bend, high grade steel saddles enhance tonality and ‘snap’, and a ground base plate corner provides authentic looks.

Speed, comfort, and ultimate playability are provided by a Classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile Maple neck, and a traditional 10" radius fingerboard. 22 Medium Profile frets add to the comfort, accuracy and classic feel of the V6HMR, while the addition of a Graphite top nut, and Wilkinson WJ55 E-Z-Lok locking tuners ensure that tuning remains both constant and stable; staggered string posts, a feature usually only seen on higher priced instruments, provide the ideal string rake angle for smooth vibrato action and correct playing tension.


What Vintage say:

The V6H is instantly identifiable to fans of Texas blues, but comes with the added benefit of some modern embellishments. A Wilkinson Double Coil pickup in the bridge position gives the guitar more bite and thickness for gain-laden lead lines, whilst eliminating hum. The Wilkinson vibrato bridge, meanwhile, features a stagger-drilled block which radically improves the guitar's intonation, whilst maintaining incredible return-to-pitch accuracy.

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.
