Due to worldwide overwhelming response and demand, Vintage has added three new models to the 25th Anniversary Series of solid bodied electric guitars.
Due to the overwhelming response and demand from music stores and guitarists around the world, Vintage has releases three new models to its 25th Anniversary Series of solid bodied electric guitars and basses launched earlier in late 2020.
Vintage had originally planned only 3 models, each with a limited run of just 100 units to celebrate a milestone in the company’s history and, to honour their 25th anniversary, a testimony to their success within guitar craftsmanship.
Looking stunning, with a striking two-tone Silver Burst finish, 25th Anniversary headstock decals and contrasting aesthetics, all 3 new models are once again based on highly successful and popular guitars from the Vintage ReIssued Series, the V6, VS6 electric guitars and the VJ74 bass guitar.
These beautiful celebratory masterpieces are built on a solid foundation of classic Vintage designs, featuring time-tested Wilkinson and Grover hardware and hand-picked tonewoods, uniting all the innovative appointments that have made these guitars Vintage classics in their own right.
The 25th Anniversary V6HMSVB with US alder body and one-piece maple neck and fingerboard carries the Wilkinson 6 screw WVC problem-solving vibrato, featuring a stagger drilled, cast block and high-grade steel saddles that enhance classic vintage tones, whilst assuring precise intonation, tuning and accurate return to pitch.
With a pair of Wilkinson WOVaS pickups in the neck and middle positions, the V6HMSVB delivers a full range of traditional single coil tones in abundance, whilst a WOHZBb Double Coil with a push-pull control for split coil facilities, adds increased power in the bridge position. Six in-a-line Wilkinson WJ55 E-Z-Lok machine heads provide simple, effective locking action for maximum tuning stability. This gorgeous new addition to the Vintage 25th Anniversary Series also looks super cool in its Silver Burst finish.
Grover Original Rotomatic machine heads and a pair of Wilkinson WOHZBb Double Coil pickups, are the perfect choice for the new 25th Anniversary VS6SVG, again, with a flawless Silver Burst finish over the mahogany body and neck.
The Vintage VS6SVB also includes a unique, evolutionary double-cut body shape with an offset heel and enhanced treble side cutaway, providing improved access to the upper reaches of the fretboard, one of many ingenious Vintage designs that have earned respect from guitar players around the world.
With a bound headstock and bound rosewood fingerboard, the VS6SVB is visually striking, offset with black controls, black 3-ply scratch plate and chrome hardware.
It’s joy of joys for bass players who will also have to be quick off the mark, to get their hands on a 25th Anniversary limited edition VJ74SVB, based on the much loved VJ74, which has a reputation as a workhorse bass guitar with professional, semi-professional and bass players around the world who just love its defined sound and playability.
This gorgeous looking bass also shares the high gloss Silver Burst finish, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, precision cut Graphtech Nubone nut, Wilkinson open-geared machine heads, 25th Anniversary headstock decals and contrasting aesthetics.
Stunning looks aside, the VJ74SVB includes the Wilkinson four-saddle, compensated brass bridge, increasing sustain and improving string intonation, whilst a pair of Wilkinson WOJB single coil pickups enhance the tight, natural piano-like tone from the US alder body, with a fine balance of high, mid and low frequencies.
The appointments and hardware selection for the Vintage 25th Anniversary Series, represent that of an experienced design team who, after a quarter of a century of loyal support, wanted to give something back to Vintage guitar fans and collectors who have waited anxiously for the launch of the new and exciting, Vintage 25th Anniversary Series.
Each Limited Edition model in the exquisite Vintage 25th Anniversary Series, comes complete with a Vintage 25th Anniversary embroidered canvas gig bag and certificate of authenticity.
