The Vintage ICON V6 solid bodied electric guitar is now available in Distressed Gun Hill Blue and Distressed White over Sunburst, with a new left-handed model finished in Distressed Laguna Blue.
These incredibly authentic right-handed models have been expertly aged by the Vintage team of professional luthiers, revealing areas of the original Sunburst finish on the body front, sides and back, to replicate the beautiful, worn-in appearance and feel of a lifetime companion that’s certainly paid its dues.
Aside from these stunning body aesthetics offset with 3-ply scratchplates, the Vintage ICON V6 distressed, is equipped with the added benefit of modern embellishments that have proven this model a first choice for a host of professional musicians in the studio and on the live circuit.
Beneficial appointments include a Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge, featuring a stagger-drilled block which radically improves intonation, whilst maintaining incredible return-to-pitch accuracy. Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok machine heads with their innovative design, offer rapid string changing, whilst the highly effective locking action, increases tuning stability.
Needless to say, with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, hard rock maple neck with GraphTech top nut and classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile, the V6 almost plays itself.
A trio of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups, with staggered, chamfered edge pole pieces, are the ideal choice and, with the centre pickup also featuring reverse wound/reverse polarity, provides hum cancelling in switch positions 2 and 4.
Delivering exceptional tone and contemporary power, the Vintage V6M Distressed ICON looks stunning and is perfect for all styles of music.

This gorgeous model retains all the classic aesthetics, hardware appointments and playability of the right-hand model with the exception of a Wilkinson double coil WVC pickup in the bridge position, providing high output, hum cancelling and enormous tonal versatility.
