(PRESS RELEASE): Bringing a subtle blend of classic looks with modern specification to the Vintage electric range, the new V72 models set a new standard for playability and tone.
The REISSUED Series™ V72HFTB (RRP £299) features a American alder chambered body matched to a one piece hard maple neck. Its modern Wilkinson WFVS six-saddle bridge design, with through-body stringing, gives unparalleled sustain and superb tone, which is captured perfectly through the Wilkinson WHHB double coil pickups, with their tight low frequency response and crisp highs.
Utilising the same great woods and materials, the REISSUED Series™ V72FTB (RRP £279) is fitted with a Wilkinson WDG mini double coil pickup at the neck postion, which provides great sustain with increased highs, and is matched to a Wilkinson Alnico V WVTB single coil bridge pickup. The Wilkinson WTB bridge with its cold rolled steel ‘ashtray’ base interacts perfectly with both the pickup and the three intonated brass saddles, providing that all-important, authentic, classic tone.
Both guitars feature attractive, book matched flame maple veneer tops, Wilkinson WJ55 machine heads, 22 medium fret rosewood fingerboards and traditional volume, tone, and three way switching controls.
