Vintage Add New Left-Handed Electric Options

With their electric guitar lines proving to be winners worldwide, Vintage now provide left-handed options of three of their most popular solid-body models, all featuring classic tone woods and the usual complement of high quality Trev Wilkinson designed hardware.

The Vintage LV6MSSB (£289 UK rrp) is a double cutaway style electric guitar, made from American alder with a one-piece maple neck and fingerboard. A set of three matched and calibrated Wilkinson WVS single coil pickups provide all the classic tones you would expect, with the positions two and three on the traditional 5 way switching also accessing hum cancelling mode to eliminate any unwanted interference. Additionally, the Wilkinson WVC vibrato system provides trouble free, return-to-zero performance every time thanks to the Wilkinson WJ55 E-Z-LOK machine heads.

Meanwhile the Vintage LV52BS (£289 UK rrp) is a left handed version of one of the ranges worldwide favourites, with a host of Nashville session aces proud to have one in their guitar arsenal. Featuring a solid American alder body matched to a one-piece maple neck and fingerboard, the LV52’s Wilkinson WVTN and WVTB pickups effortlessly capture all those authentic, iconic tones, whilst the WTB bridge provides all the tonal transfer of a traditional 3 saddle bridge with the additional benefit of self-intonation.

Finally, fairly new to the Vintage stable but already a firm favourite the LV72FTB (£309 UK rrp) matches traditional looks and boutique styling with modern performance and playability. Its American alder, acoustic chambered body comes with a beautiful bound, book-matched flame maple veneer, all joined to an extremely comfortable hard maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Two Wilkinson WHHB pickups ooze tone and sustain, thanks in part to the modern design of the Wilkinson WVFS bridge.

Available from Vintage dealers everywhere, these new left-handed electrics are sure to raise a few eyebrows with their tonality and play-ability.
