The V62AB is the archetypal workhorse electric guitar, capable of providing a multitude of musical tones from its simple array of pickups and controls. However, in keeping with the Vintage ethos, this guitar features some deceptively future-proof design tweaks.
Fixed bridges with three saddles are notoriously prone to intonation problems; the inclusion of the Wilkinson WTB bridge remedies this, allowing your leadwork and chord play to ring true all over the neck. Likewise, a 'soft C' profile allows unparalleled playability up and down the fretboard.
The addition of a Wilkinson® WVTB bridge pickup also gives the 62 even more bite for hotter single coil tones!
Body:Eastern poplar body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with correctly radiused contoured body
Bridge: The Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge featured on the Vintage V52 is a masterpiece of design, eliminating age-old intonation problems often found in three saddle, fixed bridge designs
Pickups: Pair of Wilkinson Single Coils for traditional tones combined with contemporary power, courtesy of a WVTN Alnico pickup at the neck and a WVTB Alnico in the bridge position
