The Vintage VS6 Reissued in Cherry Red is built to rock with its iconic twin-horn design and stand-out looks. Despite its highly accessible price-point, the Vintage VS6 features quality tonewoods, stable and reliable Wilkinson hardware, and a modern playability for discerning players. The VS6 features a warm and resonant mahogany body with a mahogany set-in neck for long sustain.
The tonewoods are enhanced by Wilkinson MWVC humbuckers which are vintage-voiced and based on the classic PAF design; perfect for rock and blues with nuance and bite. The tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece is also a Wilkinson design, as are the tuning machineheads, so you'll be guaranteed stable tuning and a highly resonant voice. A graphite nut also assists with the tuning stability, while the 3-way pickup selector and dual volume/tone arrangement provides access to a wide range of sounds.
The neck features a modern 12''-radius fingerboard and 22 medium frets, providing easy string bends and great balance across the strings, while the offset body design and angled heel enhance the top-fret access to enable easy high-range soloing.
With its iconic double-cutaway design, twin humbucking pickups, and smooth playability, the VS6 is perfect for players looking make a raucous tone on stage or in the studio; it is ideal for students and professionals alike. If you love the sounds of classic rock and blues, you'll love the vintage-inspired feel and tones of the VS6.
Despite the Vintage VS6's accessible price, the guitar is constructed with a quality mahogany body and neck with a lignum rosa fingerboard. This tonewood combination lends the VS6 a classic tonality with excellent warmth, resonance and sustain - perfect for blues, rock, and more. The iconic double cutaway design is offset to provide easy access to the top frets, so you'll have no problem reaching the top notes during solos, while the smooth body contours give a comfortable playing feel whether stood up or sat down.
Compared with the VS6's vintage looks and tone, the neck features a modern 12'' fingerboard radius which provides excellent balance across the strings, along with the ability to set up a low string action with no risk of the strings "choking" when you play string bends. The slim neck sits easily in the left hand, while the low-profile neck joint and offset double cutaway assists with top-fret access for high range solos. This playability gives you the smooth feel of a more modern instrument with the looks and sounds of a classic guitar.
Trev Wilkinson Hardware
Like all Vintage guitars, the VS6 features Trev Wilkinson-designed hardware, built on years of industry experience. The Wilkinson tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece features a traditional fixed design that enables full string adjustability along with optimal transfer of string vibrations.
The bridge is complemented with Wilkinson WJ44 tuners, providing a smooth action for quick and stable tuning. A graphite nut assists with tuning by providing a friction-free platform for the strings to pass over when bending strings and tuning.
Wilkinson Humbucking Pickups
The VS6 is loaded with Wilkinson MWVC humbuckers which are vintage-voiced in the style of classic PAF pickups. These pickups provide a strong humbucking tone with excellent definition, nuance, and dynamic range, courtesy of their medium-gain output.
This style of pickup is perfect for blues and rock players who require all the nuances of their playing to translate through the amplifier. The MWVC humbuckers enhance the warm and resonant tone of the mahogany body/neck, giving you a fat tone with great sustain.
