Vintage V6 Icon "Blackie" Strat Electric Guitar
The V6 Icon is based on the iconic "Blackie" Strat played by Eric Clapton
Vintage Icon Series V6 models are built using genuine tone woods, with top quality Wilkinson hardware and authentic recipe pickups that make them sound as cool as their distressed finishes!
Guitarists may very well recognise the heavy wear 'n’ tear pattern scarring on the glossless Boulevard Black body, with the guitar’s stripped maple neck and fingerboard also emulating the ageing process of countless hours of use in rehearsals, recordings, in and out of flightcases and onstage on numerous international tours.
Eastern poplar body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with correctly radiused contoured body.
The Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge featured on the Vintage V6 is a masterpiece of detail. Positive location, 6 screw design provides return to pitch accuracy; perpendicular bend, high grade steel saddles enhance tonality and ‘snap’. Ground base plate corner provides authentic looks. Stagger drilled cast block significantly enhances return to pitch accuracy and classic vintage tone. The ‘push-in’ delrin-bushed arm with variable tension provides the arm feel that suits your style.
Balanced set of Wilkinson WVS vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups, with staggered, chamfered edge pole pieces, for authentic tone and contemporary power. Reverse wound, reverse polarity centre pickup provides hum cancelling in switch position 2 and 4.
Vintage V6 tone layout also provides extra versatility with bridge and neck controls.
Wilkinson WJ55 patented E-Z-Lok tuners. Simple, effective locking action for increased tuning stability. Staggered string post heights provide correct string rake angle for smooth vibrato action and correct playing tension.
Classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile hard rock maple neck: instant comfort, speed, accuracy and great feel.
Traditional 10" radius fingerboard provides positive feel, definition and superior tone!
Medium profile frets add to comfort, accuracy and overall positive feel of the Vintage V6.
Graphite top nut, smooth and friction free.
Classic Vintage headstock design for balance and visual appeal.
The V6™ is an original Vintage® ICON Series guitar, designed and created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Vintage design team.
