Vintage V6H ICON Electric Guitar ~ Distressed Tobacco Sunburst

£225.00

This guitar is listed pre owned but it is essentially brand new as the previous owner never used it! They sell for over £300 new so this really is a bargain.

The Vintage V6 Icon’s name says it all. It offers that iconic rock ‘n’ roll tone without sacrificing the reliability and playability of more contemporary models. Experience a sound that feels like it’s seen it all, whilst still playing with a stunning clarity that cuts through the mix. The Wilkinson WVS pickups present power and glistening definition across the whole frequency range, making for a superbly versatile instrument too.

With a hard maple neck and an Eastern poplar body, this guitar has been crafted from a delicious combination of tonewoods, promising a sound that is balanced in glistening highs and crushing lows. Better still, its comfortable shape, equipped with a classic tremolo bridge, offers the most amazing playability. It might be vintage, but it will never tire. The Vintage V6 Icon has an incredible amount of life in it ready and waiting for you.
