The V52 guitar offers a playing experience in this style of guitar that nudges the enjoyment factor well up to the upper end of the scale. The Vintage V52 gives the guitarist a taste of the early days of this guitar style's 1950's beginnings in country, rockabilly and fledgling rock and roll with its mellow butterscotch finish over an alder body along with a one-piece bolt-on maple neck. As always with the Vintage range, guitar design ubermeister Trev Wilkinson has overseen production, ensuring that the performance of the pickups on these guitars is more than capable of matching the good looks. As such, all V52 pickups are alnico-powered for maximum tone 'n' twang, alongside the conventional T-type horizontal 3-way pickup selector on the control plate.
Many guitarists have become huge fans of the the Vintage Icon range of pre-distressed electric guitars, now available in many of the best-known guitar styles. Undoubtedly you'll be more than eager to snap up the competitively-priced Icon versions of these exciting new guitars, the V52MRBS with its cool-looking wear-worn body, neck and fretboard, plus the age-distressed hardware...feels good! One more thing – being the detail freak that he is, Trev Wilkinson can't quite leave it at that. So there's the period-correct single ply distressed black scratchplate on the V52 and V52 Icon, but even better is the up-specced Wilkinson WVOB bridge pickup with its flat-level alnico polepieces surrounded by Trev's custom wound construction, giving even more of that lovely dry trademark 50's 'bite' in the V52 Icon's dynamic twang!
